The capper incorporates three main functions
- Smooth travel of caps from the storage bin (capacity 2000 caps) to separator
- Separating and sorting of caps
- Control of cap travel and placement
The caps are transported by rubber conveyor belt from the storage bin to the separator. An integral sensor system guarantees the correct orientation and quantity of caps entering the cap chute. As the keg travels through, the caps (atka shrink caps or atka snap-on caps) are automatically picked and placed onto the fitting. An optical sensor observes the fitting height and regulates the capper chute. The capper may be set for different caps and keg sizes.
Optional: Capping of slim kegs
