Servo Capping and Torque Stations Provide Precise High Speed Cap Handling
2010, Blacksburg, VA — ESS Technologies, Inc.’s next-generation
monoblock filler/capper design features servo driven cap placement and
torque systems. Able to operate at speeds up to 120 bottles per
minute, the unique design allows caps to be handled with precision to
reduce the risk of dropped or skewed caps. A two-stage torque system
first uses a unique “donut” clamp to place the cap with complete
accuracy and applies the first level of torque to secure the cap. The
container indexes to the second stage where the final torque is
applied to the exact specification.

The use of Allen Bradley servos enables the system to apply a precise amount of
torque to the cap. This allows packagers and laboratories to achieve
the required seal without making it difficult for the consumer to
remove the cap, an important criteria for both product quality and
consumer assurance of product safety. The ESS-designed stainless
steel servo torque system provides accurate torque in even the most
exacting applications. The capping system can be ordered with a
feedback loop and charting capabilities to allow for graphing trends
and precise control on-the-fly. The system can be used to cap
pharmaceutical and cosmetics bottles in a wide range of sizes as
well as micro-vials, and micro-tubes.
