Capping
EQUIPMENT

Twist/Lug Closure is the most popular metal closure for food. It provides the best oxygen barrier technology for a long shelf life. UNIMAC-GHERRI linear capping machines are suitable for various types of caps: RTO, MTO, DTO, DWO, PT, PO, DSR.

VACUUM DETECTORS

Measuring systems to detect the vacuum presence and/or the lack of cap on full jars, bottles and cans.
New measuring system with detection effected without contact between sensor and cap.
Suitable to detect the vacuum presence and/or the lack of cap on jars, bottles and cans filled with food products and closed with Regular and Medium Twist-Off, Deep Twist-Off, Pry-Twist, Pry-Off, Press-On caps.

The detector can handle:

Caps: ranging from min. Ø 38 mm (smaller diameters and aluminium caps: to be checked by our Technical Dept)
Containers: Ø 28 – 200 mm H 30 – 300 mm
Output: 48.000 containers/hour – Max. conveyor speed 50 m/min (higher speeds: to be checked by our Technical Dept.)

CHARACTERISTICS
The unit can be entirely programmed by the keyboard, by a very practical self-learning function.

For any kind of production you can memorize the reference program by entering the following values in the parameters: minimum acceptable vacuum value, tolerated planarity, dimensions of cap and container.

The detection algorithm ensures a proper detector operation, without being affected by the variation in the cap edge profile or by the distance between caps (which can form an uniterrupted row).

The system is equipped with a visual/acoustic alarm, programmable according to the control specification required: achieving the set number of ejected pieces and/or ejection type.

It is also possible to control the stop of the capping machine (or another upstream / downstream equipment) depending on programmable error causes (i.e. total consecutive and/or percentage number of ejected pieces).
The user panel, which enables to set the operator language (with Latin characters), shows all the production data: quantity produced, conveyor speed, pieces ejected, etc.
