Standard Hysteresis Headsets

Most bottle capping clutches today are magnetic, but of the synchronous design. The synchronous design uses two sets of opposed magnets to achieve the desired torque.

These clutches tighten the cap much like an impact wrench tightens the lugs on an automobile tire. With today’s thinner materials, higher speeds, and need for more precise torque, synchronous clutches are quickly becoming obsolete in the workplace.

In the hysteresis design, the magnets drive the torque through a special material called the hysteresis disc. The hysteresis disc generates a completely smooth, highly repeatable torque to the bottle cap. The result is improved accuracy of application and less wear on the clutch and the machine itself

Our clutches are standard with stainless steel construction. Our magnets are double encapsulation and feature a lifetime warranty.

Smooth Torque Hysteresis Headset

Smooth Torque hysteresis capping headsets work with all existing OEM equipment. In the hysteresis design, the magnets drive torque through what is called the hysteresis disc. The hysteresis disc generates a completely smooth, highly repeatable torque to the bottle cap.

The result is consistent application torque to the cap for easy removal and longer life machine components such as anti-rotation knives and spindle gears. Magnetic Technologies headsets use the highest quality magnets, design techniques, and materials to bring you the best capping clutch for your money.

Hysteresis Magnetic Capping Headset

Dairy Heads Available As Direct Drop In Units For Milk Fillers

Complete capping assembly specifically designed for the dairy industry and existing machinery. Smooth Torque Technology provides less shock on the system compared to pulsating torque headsets, and constant torque enabling longer life of machine components and eliminating over-tightening of caps by reducing variation of removal torque. Torques are fully adjustable across a wide range. Direct drop-in replacements for Blackhawk STS capping system, Federal and Fogg fillers.

Our hysteresis clutches offer an easily adjustable torque range capable of handling the older “Snap Screw” Caps as well as the new 38 mm DBJ closures.
