Types of Capping Machine

Spindle Cappers

A spindle capper is a packaging machine that automatically secures caps onto bottles or containers. It uses rotating spindles to apply consistent torque, ensuring a tight seal. The machine accommodates a wide variety of cap sizes and shapes with minimal changeover effort, making it ideal for high-speed production lines and enhancing efficiency and product integrity.

Capping machine

Snap Capper

A snap capper is a packaging machine that applies snap-on caps to containers. It uses pressure to securely snap caps in place, ensuring a secure, reliable seal. Ideal for plastic containers and high-speed production lines, it enhances efficiency by quickly and consistently capping various container sizes.

Bench Capper

A bench capper is a compact, manually operated device that seals bottles with caps. Mounted on a workbench, it provides leverage to press or screw caps onto bottles securely. Ideal for small-scale production or home use, it ensures consistent sealing and is suitable for various cap and bottle types.

Types of Caps

Flat Caps

Flat caps are screw-on closures commonly used for beverages and condiments. The flat top surface makes them easy to manufacture and use. You can apply most flat caps using a SureKap automatic capper. SureKap developed the SK6000X-BF6 with a unique cap alignment system for reliable and cost-effective performance to prevent cross-threading issues with large-diameter caps.

Child-Resistant Caps

Child-resistant caps, essential for securing products like medications and household chemicals, require specific actions to open. They are designed with additional safety features to prevent accidental access by children. SureKap cappers can effectively apply these caps using a device that presses down on the cap while the spindles tighten it.

Sports Caps / Push-Pull Caps

Sports or push-pull caps feature an easily operable spout for use on sports and water bottles, making drinking on the move convenient. The SureKap SK6000-SP automatic capper, equipped with a vibratory bowl for sorting and aligning, is ideal for applying these caps.

Sports

Tamper-Evident Caps

Tamper-evident caps have a security feature that shows visible signs if tampering has occurred, ensuring the safety of food and beverage products. While their application is similar to flat caps, it can be complicated by unique tamper-evident band configurations, requiring careful handling to avoid damage. We designed SureKap’s SK6000-BF6 and SK6000X-BF6 automatic cappers to apply most tamper-evident caps efficiently.

Flip-Top Caps

Flip-top caps, featuring a hinged lid for one-handed use, are commonly used on products like ketchup bottles and shampoos. Automatic application typically requires a vibratory bowl for sorting and alignment. In some cases, the SK6000-BF6 capper is ideal for caps with a diameter equal to or greater than their height.

Flip Top
Pump

Pump Dispensers

Pump dispensers, used for liquids like lotions and soaps, feature a screw-on cap with an integrated pump. Pump dispensers are common in personal care and cleaning products. Due to the protruding dip tube, SureKap cannot apply these pumps automatically. Instead, the SK600 cap tightener is ideal for tightening pumps onto bottles after manual insertion.

Pump

Trigger Sprayers

Trigger sprayers for spraying liquids like cleaning solutions feature a screw-on cap with a trigger mechanism. Similar to pump dispensers, SureKap cannot automatically apply these sprayers; however, the SK600 cap tightener is ideal for securing them after manual insertion. A unique thread-start guide simplifies the process, allowing users to drop the sprayers into the bottle without engaging the threads.

Trigger

Yorker Caps

Yorker caps, featuring a narrow spout for controlled pouring, are ideal for condiments, paints, and adhesives. They offer precision and spill prevention. The SureKap SK6000-SP automatic capper, equipped with a vibratory bowl for sorting and alignment, is the ideal solution for applying these caps.

Lug Caps

Lug caps, used on glass jars for products like pickles and jams, feature angled metal tabs that grip the container threads as you twist the cap. SureKap advises using a KC-15 digital torque monitor on machines designed for lug capping to prevent damage from excessive application torque. The SK6000-BF6 automatic capper can reliably apply these caps with active torque monitoring.

Disc

Disc Caps

Disc caps, featuring a flip-open lid for controlled dispensing, are commonly used in personal care products like shampoo and lotion. Depending on the cap’s balance, SureKap may recommend using either the SK6000-BF6 or SK6000-SP with a vibratory bowl for automatic application.

FAQs

Although all SureKap equipment is designed to be flexible, you will want to consult with a SureKap associate to insure the best fit for your particular project. You are welcome to either:
Submit the online quotation request form on this website or
Simply call 770-307-4755 to speak directly to a SureKap associate who will guide you through the selection process.
Based on the particulars of your project, SureKap will find the machine that offers the most flexibility, ease of changeover, and value for your equipment needs.

Your SureKap associate will be glad to provide you with a preliminary quotation based on the information you provide from the online quotation request form or during your telephone discussion with the associate. This quotation will be subject to sample and completed data sheet approval. In order to provide you with the most accurate pricing, we always prefer to have samples of the caps, containers, and product prior to providing a quotation for a project. Based on our extensive experience with a wide variety of applications, we can usually provide a quotation based on a sample set of approximately 2-3 of each bottle and cap along with a small sample of product.

In general terms, a semi-automatic machine will require the participation of an operator to perform each product cycle. For instance, a semi-automatic capping machine such as the SK600 will require an operator to  manually place a cap on  each bottle and engage the thread. The tightener will then apply torque to complete the capping process. Semi-automatic equipment is an excellent solution for production lines that have previously been handled on a purely manual basis, but increased volume demands the assistance of some automation. Also, semi-automatic equipment is useful when a facility performs frequent short-production runs or odd-lot runs that would not justify the use of the fully automatic line. Fully Automatic Equipment is beneficial when speeds have reached the point where manual labor needs to be minimized as much as possible in order to keep up with higher production demands. Although most facilities will assign someone to monitor the line, the need for hands on labor for each production cycle is largely eliminated with fully automatic equipment. This reduction in labor can result in dramatic savings that makes the payback period on an equipment purchase surprisingly brief.

As described above, customers will need to make an initial choice between semi-automatic or automatic equipment. However, the selection of semi-automatic equipment does not necessarily mean the equipment will need to be permanently run on a semi-automatic basis. SureKap designs all equipment to allow for easy upgrade from semi-automatic to fully automatic. In some cases, such an upgrade can be done in the field, but it is often recommended that customers take advantage of the skills of a SureKap technician by returning the equipment to SureKap for a brief period to complete the upgrade process.

The purchase process is actually quite simple. The following items are necessary to complete an order and start the lead time:
Bulk samples (typically consisting of 1,500 of each cap and 12 of each container for a capper order; 24 of each container and a small sample of each product for a filler order)
Completed data sheet (s) and/or turntable orientation guide which will be provided with your quotation Deposit Signed acceptance copy of the quotation or a copy of your Purchase Order.
SureKap will always strive to expedite your equipment order as much as possible. However, all of the above specified items are essential to allow for the start of your order. For planning purposes, you should plan for an equipment completion date based on the quoted lead time with the start date determined by the date that all of the above items are received by Surekap.
