Pharmaceutical Company Saves Over 20 feet of Floor Space with 3-in-1 Machine that Caps, Seals, & Retorques
A large pharmaceutical company lacked additional space on their line to accommodate new equipment. They came to New England Machinery (NEM) to find a solution.
NEM engineered the perfect solution, designing a new multi-station Servo Capper with Integrated Induction Sealer and Servo Retorquer. By mounting three stations around a single indexing starwheel, NEM was able to incorporate 3 machines into one frame. This design allowed the footprint of one machine to house the capabilities of three, eliminating two pieces of downstream equipment, and saving the customer valuable floor space.
The customer received a compact machine that saved them over 20 feet in conveyor space alone – more when considering the space a separate Induction Sealer and Retorquer would take.
The Capper and Retorquer are equipped to provide torque feedback and is capable of handling a large variety of containers and caps. A waterfall style sorting system is used to eliminate the need for a centrifical bowl. Utilizing recipe control, customers can also run pressure seals and/or foil seals.
The customer is already talking about their next machine.
