Screw Type Electronic Bottle Capper CAE Series

The Model CAE Series Electronic Head automatic screw capping machines are state-of-the-art capping machines providing unique features found only with Zalkin electronic machines. Each head uses independently controlled brushless DC motors to provide direct drive of the capping chuck. The Zalkin CAE series electronic capping machines do not use, nor require a belt driven gear set to rotate the capping head/chuck. This provides for a very clean machine, as proven by its use in a multitude of aseptic filling/capping applications. Additionally, the Zalkin CAE series electronic bottle capper provides 100% application torque feedback data which can be captured for use in quality assurance and machine performance evaluation.

Motion control of each head provides for the application of screw-on caps of any thread configuration, push-down and oriented push down caps on one machine without the need for custom, complicated features. Machines with proven operational speeds up to 600 bottles per minute are available. Torque adjustment, if desired, is accomplished through the operator interface, without stopping production, as simply as is done during change-over; through the HMI.

Spinning only when needed to screw on the cap, the CAE series electronic bottle capper employs gentle cap pick up and release because the heads are deactivated during these processes. Minimum lubrication requirements provide for a very clean design, suitable for the Class 100 environment. The CAE Electronic Bottle Capper is wash-down suitable, as each head utilizes a NEMA4X housing.
