Genesis Machinery West PW 500 Crimp Capper
The PW-500 Westcapper is a fully automated capper using
3 spinning rollers as the sealing mechanism. The hoppering
system uses a turning disk to select caps and transfer them
to the chute and the cap feed.
As the starwheel indexes, the stoppered vials pass under the
cap feed, pick a cap and vials progress to the sealing area.
The adjustable spring loaded bottle rest and a fixed pressure
block compress the stopper while the skirt of the cap is reformed
under the locking finish of the vial. The three spinning rollers
roll the skirt into place.
The starwheel now indexes the vial onto the discharge conveyor.
Vial flow is from left to right. Rolling casters are standard,
Depending on vial size, the capper has a maximum variable
speed of 120 vials per minute.
