Automatic Monohead ROPP Capper
The PallayPack Monohead capper is manufactured on a solid welded base, epoxy coated to resist corrosion and completely clad in stainless steel. Any chance of product entering the base of the machine has been completely eliminated. A drip edge is included to catch and liquid in case of spill. The entire unit is fully guarded, with interlocked doors for ease of access and operates at speeds up to 2,800 bottles per hour.
A 950 mm high conveyor section is included which can be integrated with any existing conveyor, or it can be equipped with a variable speed drive and idler assembly.
A mechanical drive mounted in the base of the machine mechanically links the rotation of the positive starwheel feed indexing system with the motorized ROPP cap roller head. The machine will not come out of synchronization and change parts can be added for years into the future without the need to retrofit them in the field. They simply fit into place due to the precise construction. (A safety interlock stops the machine in case of jams).
Starwheels and back plates are self-locating and are interchanged without tools, they are marked and color coded. These starwheel are ideal for handling a variety of container sizes and they serve to eliminate any side gripper belts that would need to be continuously adjusted as with inline cappers.
Container presence within the starwheel is monitored, in case a container does not pick up a cap, the ROPP head has a special feature for no cap – no crimp which can save damage to the container neck. Correct cap placement including a reject system for miss – capped containers is also available as an optional extra.
Caps are sealed with a four roller, 304 S.S. ROPP capping head, two rollers are used to form the threads, while two rollers are used to make the seal. The capping head height is set manually with a hand wheel at the back of the machine.
Machine sensors which are included are no bottle / machine stop, bottle blockage on exit / machine stop and low caps in chute / machine stop. The controls include a touch panel HMI enclosed in a 304 s.s. panel, specific brands of HMI are available on request.
