How It Works
SA™ Capping Machine with Standard Base
Place a cap loosely onto the bottle and then place the bottle onto the base of the machine so it is resting against the backstop. The bottle is now well centered under the capping motor and ready to be capped.
The operator depresses the foot pedal. The foot pedal controls the air cylinder which supplies the up and down motion to the capping motor. Depressing the foot pedal actuates the air cylinder to lower the capping motor with attached chuck down onto the cap to be tightened.
When the chuck contacts the cap, the chuck is pushed up slightly into the capping motor which starts the capping motor. The capping motor tightens the cap in less than a second and then automatically shuts off; it is like a pulse.
When the capping motor shuts off, the operator removes his or her foot from the foot pedal allowing the capping motor with attached chuck to rise up off of the cap and back to its starting position. The perfectly capped bottle can now be removed from the base of the machine
The SA Capping Machine runs solely on compressed air; it does not require electricity.
