What is a Capping Chuck?

Bottle cap chucks are the crucial interface between the capping machine and the bottle for a successful cap application. A quality designed and manufactured chuck is front line to a happy consumer. Since bottle caps vary in size, style, and shape depending on the product, capping chucks are available in a wide range of sizes, shapes, and types.

Remember the capping problems you are experiencing may not be a chuck issue. Our highly experienced service support can audit your machine and materials to determine if you may have a machine design problem or material issue with the bottle and cap. We don’t just sell parts we provide solutions.

Gripper Chucks

Machines designed with a gripper require custom engineering. We use 3D Auto CAD design and then provide full documentation for future maintenance needs.

Rubber Lined Jaws

Rubber lined jaws are chucks with rubber lining around the gripping jaws that allow more delicate handling such as smooth sided or metal closures. We provide custom molded designs.

Solid Chucks

Solid chucks are machined from appropriate materials to prevent future corrosion, yet offer the hardness to provide a long life on the machinery. Each chuck is designed to match the cap and be a direct drop in on the equipment.
