CAPPER AND RETORQUER

beltorque® Inline Automated Capper – BT-IC

This model is fully automated. It places the cap on the container, screws the cap and applies a controlled torque on it, which can be monitored for further quality assurance. The beltorque® capper is equipped with three (3) sets of belts. The container gripper belts stabilize the containers during the capping operation process. The screwing belts place and screw the closure on the container. The tightening belts apply the final required torque to the caps.

beltorque® Inline Screwer-Tightener – BT-ST

This model is mainly used on semi-automated line to screw and tighten closures previously placed on the containers. The beltorque®, model BT-ST, is an inline cap screwer-tightener mounted with three (3) sets of belts. The container gripper belts stabilize the containers for the cap screwing and tightening operations. The screwing belts screw the caps. The tightening belts apply the requested final torque to the caps.

beltorque® Inline Retorquer – BT-RT

This unit is usually placed after a cap induction sealing machine or to apply a controlled torque on closures previously screwed. The beltorque®, model BT-RT, is an inline cap tightener that uses two (2) sets of belts. The container gripper belts stabilize the containers for the cap tightening operations. The tightening belts apply the final torque to the caps.
