Cap Retorquer/Tightener System
New England Machinery, Inc. offers the latest technology with this Model NEPMT cap retorquer/tightener. If you are experiencing LOOSE CAP problems, the NEPMT inline cap tightener/retorquer is the solution. Due to industry demands of induction sealing for freshness and tamper evidence, caps tend to lose their torque. This equipment gives the peace of mind that you will not be faced with recall or quarantine due to loose caps, product spillage or contamination. The NEPMT cap tightener is also designed to eliminate any rework or hand tightening which can induce repetitive motion injuries. The individual motor drive system minimizes the number of drive components, and allows easier changeover.
Economical - Cap tightening at an economical low price.
Easy to Use - The New England Machinery NEPMT cap retorquer/tightener is a freestanding, self-contained unit which installs over your existing tabletop conveyor.
Easy to Adjust - Hand crank height adjustment allows a single operator to change over the system quickly without tools. Individual spindle adjustable applied torque controller permits on-the-run torque fine tuning.
Reliable - Our patented, dynamic cap-tightening spindles increase roller to cap contact throughout the tightening process. Over 75% contact occurs instead of typical tangential contact only. This technology protects the cap finish and virtually eliminates roller wear and particulation. A single pair of rollers will generate as much applied torque as a traditional 6-spindle in-line capper or tightener. This high speed in-line retorquer/cap tightener features high quality and precise cap tightening without cap scuffing.
Optional Backlog Protection - Photo-eye monitors the line requirements, and stops and starts the optional infeed timing belts according to downstream demand.
NEM offers cap tightening system with applied torque and settings readout for optimal bottle cap torque. read more >>
