Cap Retorquer/Tightener System

Model name: NEPMT

Reliable. Peace of Mind.

New England Machinery’s Retorquer system gives the peace of mind that you will not be faced with recall or quarantine due to loose caps, product spillage or contamination.

Due to industry demands of induction sealing for freshness and tamper evidence, caps tend to lose their torque. Our system offers cap tightening, with a readout option, that gives you peace of mind your containers are sealed, and reduces rework and manual tightening.
