Shorten calibration of capping, corking and seaming equipment
Application | Vertical Load
Improperly calibrated corking, capping and sealing machines can put excess downward force on containers and cans causing neck damage and breakage that operations can’t afford, while over-stacked pallets trigger seal failures that affect product quality.
Increase processing speed with in-line measurement of vertical load for simplified calibration & breakage reduction.
Calibration is time consuming. Most capper machines average over twenty-four heads, and on lines where more than one container is filled, calibrations need to be performed every time a bottle type is switched.
Capper and seamer machines are typically preset to achieve a proper seal on the container being processed. In reality, it is difficult to measure the force applied to the container for each head, as compared to the setting. Given the ramifications of improperly calibrated heads, it’s important to understand this difference in applied forces.
In-line sensor measurement by VerticalQC and SeamerQC provides immediate and real-time measurement of the vertical force that each capper head is pressing onto the container. Operations can reduce calibration from hours to minutes.Start Measuring Vertical Load
