The ASC-6 is a tough stainless steel spindle capper designed to automatically place and tighten a wide variety of screw and lug type caps and closures onto containers. Each of it’s six tightening spindles is spring loaded for increased disk to cap contact and reduced disk wear and driven by a torque sensitive individually controlled motor. This unique design eliminates the need for transmissions, belts, pulleys, and universal shafts. By reducing these components, maintenance time is decreased, while the capability and adjustability of the capper is increased to accommodate standard container closures ranging from 10mm – 110 mm with no modifications.
The ASC-6 Automatic Spindle Capper ships standard with a Centrifugal Bowl closure orientation system for line speeds up to 200 cpm. The system can be upgraded with a Closure Elevator / Orientator increasing line speed and efficiency. Single Gripper Belts are standard and have a tapered container adjustment to accommodate sloped containers up to 7 1/2" wide. Various gripper belt options are available for higher production rates, torque requirements, or difficult to handle containers.
