Redesigned Beltorque® High-Speed In-line Capper to Debut at Pack Expo Las Vegas/Pharma Expo
Just when we thought the beltorque® high-speed capper couldn’t get any better, we’ve improved our favorite continuous motion capper – and can’t wait for you to see it at Pack Expo Las Vegas/Pharma Expo. The improved beltorque® features a new servo-driven, patent-pending cap elevator-feeder with adjustable cleats and indexes on demand. For your pharmaceutical packaging needs, this means a 50 percent speed increase, capping up to 300 bottles per minute.
The beltorque’s improvements make it a viable replacement for complex rotary cappers, particularly since the simple mechanics of the packaging machine mean fast changeovers and low maintenance. Ideal for pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, cosmetics, personal care products, and foods and beverages, this two-station capper uses two pairs of belts to gently rotate and tighten caps, which eliminates damage to the cap knurling and cap finish. At the same time, the beltorque® also minimizes slippage, preventing leaks and reducing the rework required when out-of-tolerance rejects are sent back.
Use any kind of bottle: round, oval, square, rectangular, made of plastic or glass, from 2 to 12 inches tall and .5 to 7 inches in diameter for plastic caps or up to 4.75 inches in diameter for metal caps. The beltorque® can handle it, orienting and placing challenging flip-top screw caps for pharmaceuticals, sealing bottles with gear-shaped caps and rubberized arthritis grip caps. The cap’s surface won’t be damaged.
If you’re working with a new cap design, NJM Packaging also helps speed up the process to get new products to market. We can manufacture the tooling you need for your beltorque® quickly. For each optional feature, the torque reader and the cap inspection station, we can equip your new beltorque® with a centrifugal bowl for tall caps or an elevator feeder.
In addition to the reduced cost of maintenance, thanks to the simple machinery, the servo-driven elevator-feeder reduces compressed air use by 50 percent, reducing energy costs. Everything about the redesigned beltorque® makes it easier and faster to seal pharmaceutical packaging, consumer goods, and more. The full press release can be read here.
