Rotary Bottle Capping Equipment

A Capping Machine is used for the application of plastic and metal threaded caps as well as plastic snap caps, some fitments, and some types of corks and plugs.  Quality cap application requires a well thought out machine that incorporates proper cam design and spindle speed control to facilitate application on closures with single lead or multi-lead threads as well as differing internal seals including the new plug seals for beverages. You also must consider application needs for standard serrated beverage caps to smooth side and dispensing type closures. Each requires a different approach in machine design. JD Machinery Sales and Service work with our clients to select a machine with the required features to meet their capping needs.
