Pharmapack Automatic Capping Machine: Easily Used and Operated


If you are looking for persons good at packaging medicines in bottles, hold your horse! Why bother wasting time and money on time-consuming, costly and fallible humans, when you can simply rely on the machine? In mass production, the automatic capping machine is indispensable for many sectors, especially the pharmaceutical one, where time is essential in the battles against the virus. This guide will brief you on how the automatic capping machines increase your capping efficiency and lower your cost. If you're new in the field, this may be a good start for your further information and purchase of automatic capping machines. 


  What Is An Automatic Capping Machine? 

So what exactly is an automatic capping machine?

Automatic capping machine is an equipment that places install and tighten lids or caps on different containers faster and better, be them beverage bottles, medicine bottles or any form of container.


  Why You Need an Automatic Capping Machine in Pharmaceutical Industry? 

All the capper automatically identifies the container and tightens the caps based on their types. The screw capping machine is recommendable for newcomers, as you will soon realize the benefits when you see the increase in production, mainly through accurate torque values. It does help eliminate labor fatigue and prevent unnecessary losses. In a mass production line, much money can be saved if manpower is no longer needed.

In the pharmaceutical industry, high-volume production of drugs delivered in vials and cartridges requires high-speed capping solutions. However, speed must not come at the expense of accuracy and flexibility. Modern high-capacity vial cappers are capable of delivering impressive capacity while maintaining product quality and vibrancy, with the flexibility to seal using screw-on, press-fit, tear-off, and flip-top closures.

1. Inline Cap Retorquer

The LFCL-15/15M In-Line Cap Retorquer is designed to retighten screw-on caps, working at speeds of 200 bottles per minute, maximum. Even more reassuringly, it is built in compliance with current and proposed GMPs.


2. Inline Screw-on Capper

LFCL-15F Inline Screw-on Capper is designed to retighten screw-on caps after induction sealing as speedy as 150 bottles per minute. It utilizes the latest technology to automatically place and precisely torque a wide spectrum of cap types onto virtually any bottles type.



LFCL-20FN Inline Screw-on Capper is perfect for pharmaceutical, healthcare and food industries products. With a specialized device, this machine helpfully tightens the messy caps and bottles sent from the unscrambler to the next step at a certain speed.


Applicable products are cylindrical, elliptical cylindrical, and rectangular plastic bottles between 45~200mm in height and φ35~φ100mm outer diameter. Bottles too large, too small, and not impact resistant (such as glass bottles) are not suitable for this machine.


LFCL-20FN Inline Screw-on Capper cooperates well with our automatic unscrambler, automatic counter, and other filling counting devices, usually connected by a conveyor.

3Inline Screw-on/Press-on Capper

The automatic capper LFCL-15FN is a reliable, high-performance bottle filling and sealing machine. It is designed in compliance with current and proposed GMPs. Having a small footprint, they are effective in maintaining the integrity of a cleanroom environment. You do not have to alter many parts for different cap sizes, since only the cap slide rail needs to be changed. Bulk caps are loaded into the hopper manually or automatically.

4. Rotary Capper Machine for Screw Rotary Cap/ Press Rotary Cap

LFCR-1506/2510/4016 for Screw Rotary Cap is specifically useful in the pharmaceutical, healthcare and food industries. It first goes through the cover mechanism by the desired direction of the bottle cap, then into the star wheel of the cap caught by the capping. From the previous process came over the bottle of the spin together to a certain speed to the next process.


Cylindrical, oval, and rectangular plastic bottles between 45~205 mm in height, 20~60 mm outside diameter are all applicable. Those too large, too small, and fragile ones (such as glass bottles) are not suitable for this rotary capper.


LFCT-1506/2510 Rotary Capper Machine is designed to press on caps after induction sealing, working at speeds of up to 150 bottles per minute. Cap height between 10~30 mm and bottle height between 45~200 mm is applicable. The rotary capper system can handle press-on caps with ease on round or irregular-shaped containers, dealing with as many as 150 bottles per minute. All the caps of φ20~φ55mm and bottles of φ20~φ98mm are welcome for this machine.



Why Choose Pharmapack Automatic Capping Machines?
