Chuck Cappers

Distributing Kinex Cappers

We distribute Kinex Cappers, they specialize in the manufacture of semi-automatic and hand held capping machines and bottle cappers that tighten screw and lug type caps from 10 mm to 130 mm. With this specific focus they have developed the most extensive and complete line of semi-automatic and hand held capping machines in the industry. All of their capping machines and accessories are ready for immediate shipment.

These bottle cappers tighten caps constructed of all materials, including tamper evident caps, child resistant caps, metal caps, and caps requiring induction seal. Our machines work with glass, metal and plastic containers, including PP, PVC, HDPE, PET, PP and PVC.

 

Below are the semi-automatic and manual or hand held capping machines offered that will work for most applications.

  • SA™ Bench Top Capping Machine

  • Cap-Rite™ Manual Capper

  • PS™ Pneumatic Bottle Capper

  • ES™ Electric Bottle Capper

  • LS™ Pneumatic Bottle Capper

  • Kinetic™ Bottle Capper

 

Small Caps Capping Machines

Three of these capping machines have been specifically engineered to work with small caps. They are listed here.

SA-1000 Bench-Top Capping Machine

Our 1000 Bench-Top Capping Machine has been specifically designed to tighten small caps. With a torque output as low as 2 inch.lbs, the SA-1000 provides excellent torque accuracy and repeatability for small cap applications.

PS-100

A pneumatic hand held capper that is ideal for use with small caps. Featuring a low torque range starting at only 2 inch.lbs, the PS-100 delivers outstanding repeatable torque accuracy on caps ranging from 10-41 mm.

ES-100

An electric hand held capper that is ideal for use with small caps. With a low torque range of 2-14 inch.lbs, the ES-100 delivers outstanding repeatable torque accuracy on caps ranging from 10-24 mm.

 

Large Cap Tightening

SA-2000 Series Bench-Top Capping Machine

Our 2000 Series Bench-Top Capping Machine has been specifically designed to tighten large caps. The power unit incorporates a powerful pneumatic motor coupled with a high gear ratio and low RPM that produces the output torque necessary to close large caps with ease and precision. The SA 2000 not only has the power to tighten large caps, but it does so with very high torque accuracy and precision.

The SA Capping Machine is designed to eliminate the strain and fatigue associated with tightening large caps. The operator places the container to be capped into the V-block (bottle centering device) and onto the Anti-Rotation Base of the SA Capping Machine. The Anti-Rotation Base has a very high friction rubber surface which helps prevent the container from rotating while it is being capped. This makes holding the container while it is being capped strain free. The result is a machine that is very ergonomic.

 

PS-300 Power Cap™

A pneumatic hand held capper that is ideal for use with large caps. The PS-300 has a wide torque range, from 14-110 inch.lbs. It has the power to deal with your large caps, and still tighten caps as small as 22 mm. We can modify a PS-300 to work with smaller cap ranges and lower torque ranges as well.

The PS-300 Power Cap™ should be paired with our KST-100 when the machine will be used to tighten large caps. Large caps require a lot of application torque to close properly. A hand held capping machine becomes very difficult and fatiguing to hold in these high torque applications. The Kinex Torque Stabilizing Arm (KST-100) holds the PS-300 still so the operator does not have to. It eliminates 100% of the twisting torque generated during the capping process, protecting the operators fingers, hands, wrists and arms from repetitive strain.

 

Kinetic Series Cappers

Our SWDP-16 and SWTE-16 Two Speed Kinetic Cappers are very well suited to tighten large caps. Powered by a fractional horsepower AC motor, these capping machines are strong and fast, delivering a torque range of 4-100 inch.lbs.

Kinetic Series Cappers are also a very ergonomic solution for large caps as the twisting torque generated during the capping process with large caps is absorbed through the suspension system of the machine, and not transferred to the operator.

 

While Kinetic Series Capping Machines are very fast and very ergonomic, they do not offer the excellent torque accuracy and repeatability of the SA-2000 and PS-300. If all you need is a good tight cap, the Kinetic Series is an excellent option for you. If your application calls for greater torque accuracy and you need to meet specific torque specifications, the SA-2000 and PS-300 are the superior choice.

The LS™ 100 cap tightener, our least expensive bottle capper, tightens screw and lug caps from 24 mm to 83 mm in diameter. This capper features an external torque dial that makes changing the torque fast and simple with consistent results.

 

How It works

Capping machine features:

  • Tighten screw and lug type caps from 24mm- 83mm.

  • Good repeatable torque ranging from 14-70 inch.lbs.

  • Lever start

  • Adjustable clutch with external torque adjustment dial

 

LS™ capping machines operate in the following way. The operator lowers the chuck onto the cap to be tightened. The operator then depresses the lever with their thumb or fingers to start the capping machine which will quickly tighten the cap onto the container. When the cap reaches the pre set torque, the operator will hear the clutch slipping and will see the chuck has stopped rotating on top of the cap. This signals the operator to release the lever and move on to the next cap.

While the LS-100 is a good capping machine that is far superior to others in its price class, it does not provide the excellent torque accuracy as well as the many ergonomic advantages that the PS Series Pneumatic hand held capping machines offer.

How It works

Simply place the bottle to be capped into the V-block on the base of the machine and depress the foot pedal. This activates the machine to bring the capping motor down onto the cap, tighten the cap to the pre-set torque, then lift the capping motor back to its initial position ready for the next container.

These Capping Machines feature an adjustable automatic-shut-off clutch, which offers excellent torque accuracy and repeatability. The clutch is easily adjusted by rotating an external dial with your fingers; the torque range is from 2 inch.lbs. – 125 inch.lbs. When the cap reaches the pre-set torque, the clutch signals the motor to shut off, and the machine lifts up off of the cap.

These Semi-Automatic Cappers are air operated. They include an integrated lubricator/filter/regulator to ensure the machine receives clean, well lubricated air at the correct air pressure.

PS Bottle Cappers tighten screw and lug caps from 10 mm to 130 mm. They are easy to use and a good choice when torque accuracy and repeatability are crucial. The torque output is easily adjusted by turning an external torque dial with your fingers. PS Capping Machines run on compressed air at 90 psi; they are very quiet and comfortable to use.

PS capping machines are lightweight and include ergonomic features such as push to start and automatic shut off.

How It works

PS capping machines are very easy to use. The operator lowers the chuck onto the cap to be tightened. With a gentle push down (push to start-there are no levers to depress) the machine starts and tightens the cap in a fraction of a second. When the cap reaches the preset torque, the machine automatically shuts off (auto-shut-off), signaling the operator to go to the next cap.

Our PS-100 can handle your small cap requirements, applying as little as 2 inch.lbs. of torque.

When we discuss small caps we are in general referring to caps from 10mm – 18mm in diameter. The appropriate torque range to tighten such small caps is usually between 2 inch.lbs and 12 inch.lbs. Small caps are most frequently found in the medical, pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. Subject to greater regulation and extensive quality standards, these companies frequently require a capping machine which will deliver excellent repeatable torque accuracy on their caps and containers.

The application torque of this Manual Capper is factory set and locked to your specification. Available torque settings are from 5 – 50 inch.lbs. The torque setting can be selected in 1 inch.lbs. increments.

The Manual Capper provides outstanding torque accuracy of +/- 4% which ensures that you will be applying the correct amount of torque to your cap every time. A certificate of calibration is included with your purchase.

 

Cap

Irregular Caps?

A custom chuck can be machined for your Cap-Rite™ Manual Capper that will tighten irregular caps such as Dropper Caps, Spout Caps, Push-Pull Caps, Sports Caps, and many more.

The Cap-Rite™ Manual Capper includes 2 components:

  • Ergonomic Grip with Integrated Clutch – Designed to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand.

  • Custom Machined Chuck- This chuck is machined to custom fit the features of your cap. The chuck will fit your cap in a similar way to how a socket fits a nut.

  • A custom machined chuck is required to properly tighten a cap with a Cap-Rite Manual Capper. While standard chucks with urethane chuck inserts (liners) are standard equipment with our powered capping machines, they cannot provide enough gripping power to generate the torque necessary to properly seat a cap being applied manually.
