Automatic ROPP Capping

fully automatic sc-40at

For-bro offers complete Automatic capping machines in two variants i.e. Screw type capping and ROPP capping. Screw capping machines are suitable for capping Plastic threaded caps on bottles and jar whereas ROPP capping is best suitable for metal caps on bottle and jar. SC-40AT is a combination of Automatic Capping machine and Rotary turn Table for collection of capped bottles. It makes the overall collection process easy and can be easily integrated with a fully automatic filling lines for liquid, powders, granules or pastes.

Screw type automated capping machines requires cap to be placed in the circular vibratory discharge manually. The machine is designed for a high speed capping. Bottles are fed under the chute of the bowl feeder which places the cap on the top of the bottle and the continuously rotating head will thread the cap and move the bottle on the conveyor belt to the labelling machine or the next stage processing.

ROPP (Roll on Pilfer Proof) capping machine simply put is an unthreaded metal cap that is placed on and pressed down onto the bottle neck while thread forming wheels spin around the cap and press against it to conform to the existing threads of the bottle and locking ring. The big advantage of a ROPP capper is that it is sealing the product at the same time it is providing tamper evident security.

Pre-filled bottles/containers are continuously fed to capping head through conveyor belt. The bottles are then fed in to the star wheel. ROPP caps from the orientation unit automatically feeds caps in correct direction before entering into delivery chute. Once the Bottle is positioned below the rotating capping head, out of 4 rollers, two rollers will Skirt, Spins and Seals the cap and other two roller will provide threading according to bottle neck diameter. Once the Cap is tightly sealed on the bottle , rotating head will automatically release the bottle and which in turn will come out of the star wheel and will be assembled on the rotary table OR can be conveyed to the inspection station Or labelling station.
