Multi-station capping machine - Mexico

A new market, a new contact born at the Expo Pack Mexico fair in May 2016. A new challenge that Rejves' engineering team welcomed, confident that also this time they would succeeded in designing a standard capping machine. Since the beginning, our team listened carefully to the customer's needs, analyzed and studied the materials used for bottles and caps. It was clear from the beginning that it would not have been easy to design a flexible machine, capable of working with irregular caps and sometimes with differences in size. Even the large dimensions of PET bottles, and their unstable shape, have challenged our engineers, who worked to handle big  equipment; optimizing accelerations and decelerations to avoid product dropping during their transfer. What makes Rejves an innovative company and always ready to take the challenge is the ability of its designers to study new flexible and precise capping solutions at the same time.

Our R & D team has suggested to designing a multi-station capping machine, with 3 capping turrets and 3 feeding groups consisting of: elevator, sorter and air chute for caps. In this way the machine would have been able to apply more caps during the same capping cycle. A rotary capping machine with 3 capping stations was born, suitable for the application and closure of pressure caps and threaded caps, pouring caps and dosing valves, capsules. All these sizes, so different in shape and size, can be worked in a single production cycle and on the same machine in the different capping stations. The Rejves rotary capping machine developed for this project is an intermittent rotary machine with oil bath lubricated indexing system, HMI operator panel touch screen 7 " Siemens with intuitive user interface, NEMA 4X stainless steel cabinet, no bottle no cap system. Bottle format changeover without tools, with handwheels for a fast and easy changeover of the bottle equipment, which has been separated into two parts. This system allows a single operator to carry the format change from one bottle to the other, in a short time. The multi-station capping machine has been designed for 5 bottle formats, 5 to 10 liters, and 7 cap formats. The machine is equipped with control systems for plug, under-cap and can be integrated with a reject system.

A complex and stimulating project that involved the entire Rejves team during design, assembly and testing, in order to realize and provide the customer the machine he did not know could be built. A machine that can automatically carry out a process that, until a few months ago, required the client to employ a dozen people on the line, and which greatly improved the capping quality and increased the production yield of the line, reducing the number of human resources employed.
