The compact Shrink-capper and -fitter AS1000 combines the functions of placement and shrink-fitting of SIGL shrink-caps in a single machine and in the smallest place possible. The caps are first transported from the storage bin to the sorting drum. A vibrator then transports the caps in the correct position into the feed chute under electronic quantity control. As the keg travels through, the caps are automatically picked and placed onto the fitting. The keg is then transported to the shrink-fitting-station where it is centred. The shrinkhead with automatic height detection shrinks the SIGL shrink-cap around the fitting under time and temperature control, ensuring the quality closure of the keg. The Shrink-capper and - fitter AS1000 is designed for mixed operation and sets itself to the relevant keg size.
Capacity: 1000 kegs/hour
Optional: can also be used for the capping of slim kegs
