The latest addition to ASSET’s range of packaging equipment is the ACP-1 Multi Function Cap Placer. This technologically advanced electro-pneumatic machine is designed to unscramble, place and start the thread of screw caps onto containers.
Caps are fed to the placer via a chute which accumulates caps that have been correctly orientated by a fully automated rotating cap sorting system. The rotating sorter manages a wide range of cap sizes and types. Positive orientation is achieved by a highly accurate laser sensor examining each cap. The sorting system is fully speed controlled. Caps are fed to the machine by means of a chute which has sensors fitted to control the cap sorter if the chute becomes full or pause the control of the machine should the caps run out.
Mounted over a continuously running slat conveyor, containers are indexed through the cap placing station and are accurately located with container clamping jaws.
The cap is captured by a vacuum chuck system permitting the cap to be screwed onto the container. A unique system prevents cap damage and will not distort the bottle when placing caps. Once a cap is fitted, the container is then indexed to the tightening station where the bottle is clamped ready for tightening.
