The “Borgo” screw capping machines featured in the “VA” and “VP” series can be constructed with either a single head or multiple heads suited to higher production speeds. The VA and VP series of machines are designed to close screw caps that can be dispensed on the fly (by this we mean contrary to the Pick & Place machines the VP and VA series take delivery of the cap by using the leading edge of the bottle or containers neck to snatch the cap out of the channel as it passes by). This series can run caps where the thread needs to be formed on the machine by the closing heads, or alternately can run pre-threaded caps in plastic or metal. VP or VA machines can apply screw caps, or pressure fit caps onto glass, metal and plastic containers.
The caps in the delivery channel are taken by the containers neck, the container enters into an "entry star" which is timed to place the container and cap directly under its' capping head. Depending on the type of cap a variable speed unit can be fitted on the closing turret to enable increased rotation of the capping heads.

 

 
 

 

 

 
 


The "pick and place" capping machine can be made with either one capping head or multiple heads. This design of machine is especially suited to applications where the caps design (or cork depending on the application) is not suited to using the leading edge of the bottles neck to "snatch" the cap out of the cap delivery channel prior to tightening. This style of machine is particularly suited to push fit or pressure fit caps, pre-threaded caps and corks that are manufactured out of metal or plastic. The caps are sorted by the rotary cap sorter, when in the correct orientation caps exit the feeder and enter into the cap delivery channel. Each cap is released from the channel onto a rotating "transfer disc". This disc puts the cap in the correctly timed sequence or "pitch" so that the cap is positioned directly under its' capping head. The capping head descends down onto the cap and seizes it in the capping jaws, the capping head
then places the cap onto the bottle neck and tightening begins. If there is no container or bottle to be capped, then no cap is released from the cap delivery channel (cap dispensing is timed to the bottles presence) NO BOTTLE - NO CAP, Depending on the type of cap, a variable speed unit can be fitted onto the closing turret to enable increased rotation of capping heads.
