RC Series Rotary Chuck Capper

Rotory Chuck Capper for high speed bottling

The Biner Ellison RC Series Cappers are versatile rotary capping systems designed to complement high speed rotary bottling equipment. These flexible rotary cappers continuously sort, apply, and torque caps to a variety of different container sizes and shapes. RC Cappers come standard with mechanical friction clutches to ensure that accurate and uniform torque values are applied to each container for optimal closure results. They can be easily integrated into existing packaging lines or tailored to your new project’s specifications.

The RC Series Cappers are available in two model sizes, the RC40 and the RC52, with operational speeds up to 140 CPM and 240 CPM respectively. (Higher speeds possible depending on container and cap characteristics.) Each RC Series Capper can accommodate a range of container and cap sizes with minimal change parts. This makes them the perfect capper for customers or contract packagers who plan to run multiple products on a single bottling line. All cappers feature color touch screen displays with a full management interface for complete efficiency control. Up to 99 job recipes can be saved making changeover from one project to another smooth and simple.
