Fully automatic capping machine


The fully automatic capping machine ZD-4000 is designed for the capping of different containers made of glass or plastics like jars for jam or honey etc. with so called twist-off caps.
The twist-off caps can have different diameters.

The complete process, starting from the feeding of the twist-off cap via sorting device, down to the discharge of the closed container is running fully automatically.

Volume of bottles: up to 1500 ml
Power consumption: 1,2 kW
Power supply: 3 phase – 3x400V 50/60Hz
Noise level: < 68 dB
Dimensions (L × W × H): 700 × 670 × 1600 mm und 2500 x 1200 x 1800
Weight: 350 kg

Type of construction and technology:

The equipment consists of the main components twist-off conveyor and sorting device, a steam tunnel and conveyor.
The ZD-4000 can be connected to an existing conveyor of the customer forming an element of a complete filling line. A steady control of the capping speed allows a synchronisation with other machines installed in the filling line.
The working zone is protected with coverings.

The conveyor length is 2500mm in its standard configuration and is available in other lengths optionally.
A steam generator is optionally available.

The simple construction of the machine ensures easy cleaning of all components.
The standard version is made out of stainless steel AISI 304. Furthermore the equipment can be designed according to the customers’ special requests

Functional description:

The containers are transported automatically to the conveyor of the machine after filling, where the twist-off caps are placed on the container under steam injection and closed up tightly.

It is also possible to place the filled jars manually on the conveyor belt.
