The Tube Capping Machine, CP-60, is a versatile machine for putting Screw-on and Push fit flip-top caps on the tubes. The capping head is designed such that the same head can function for both the applications.
The machine has a 12 station servo driven indexing table with stations for the following operations :
In case of push fit caps, the tube and caps are oriented before fixing to the desired position.
The tube feeding is done by a flat belt conveyor with the tube separator. The cap feeding is done by a vibratory feeder and a linear conveyor.
Elaborate diagnostics features are incorporated which enable quick troubleshooting. Remote diagnostics facility (optional) can be offered for providing quick service for software related diagnosis.
The tube is rejected in case the cap is not tightened to the set torque or flip notch of the cap is not oriented to the desired position.
A unique feature of the machine is the Tube-Test mode. The highlight of this feature is that one tube is loaded on the mandrel, then it moves to all the stations for the various operations and is finally ejected out. This helps in setting the machine with minimum number of tubes.
The machine is distinguished by its high “Performance to Cost” ratio, easy operation and little maintenance. It is very simple and quick to change from one size to another.
The machine construction is compact yet rigid and is controlled by a fully integrated state-of-the-art logic controller and servo motors from B & R Automations, with a colour touch-screen interface for the operator.
