Pharmaceutical Industry is one such industry that has and will show a perennial rise in demand for products and hence the need for capping machines. Excellent support of such machinery based on the mode of drug delivery as well the end-to-end line of delivery based on the different segment as well as the geographical segregation makes it a very flexible industry. The COVID-19 pandemic has a large impact on the delivery of health care but on a positive note, the research and development of pharmaceutical machinery and products have increased manifold. Customer services on such machinery have also increased virtually.
The Vial fillers when equipped with peristaltic pumps and rotary piston pumps fill the vial with accuracy and then comes the role of a vial capping machine. This vial cap sealing machine helps to seal vials with caps of aluminum or plastic or any other material. There are automatic cap sealing machines that are fully servo-driven and can easily adapt themselves to different vials. All kinematics of this filler system is adjusted automatically including the adjustment of output. The induction cap sealer machine carries out another process that uses the no contact principle where the seal is applied to the opening of a bottle or the container. An induction cap sealing machine is a machine where the seal is applied to the opening of the container and is a leak-proof seal that cannot be tampered with. It goes on to increase the shelf life of the products and gets the cap on the container airtight.
Different types of Caps
Screw-on type caps are the most commonly used and a variety of them include simple flat caps, sports caps, or pump sprayers, Another less commonly used cap is the Snap Cap which can be simply snapped onto the bottle. The bottle corking cap is another cap that is gaining much popularity in the coming days. The cap sealer machines goes on to play a bigger role so that these caps can be secured well on the vial or the bottle or the container.
Different types of Capping Machines
Automatic ROPP Cap sealing machine- This bottle capping machine is made up of an Automatic conveyor belt, Cap feeding unit, and a capping unit with gear and motor. The filled bottle automatically moves towards the capping head and while on the move, picks up the cap from the rotating feeder unit.
Multi-Head Cap sealing machine-While moving on the conveyor belt, the bottle picks up a cap from the delivery chute. This capper works with several rotary heads for cap sealing.
Automatic Inline Capping machine-This machine gets the torque control by using a spring or air load clutches that tighten and release the target under them.
Manufacturers of Pharma cap sealing machine also make a few other types of similar machinery like screw cap sealing machine, automatic eight head aluminum cap sealing machine, and many more.
With the technological advancements and with digital technology even with the touch of a screen multitude of functions are available and with perfection in the pharma cap sealers. They are distinguished by the cap range provided as well as the torque range. End users also play a major part as pharma cappers cater to a slightly different requirement owing to the needs of transportation and accuracy. While the demand is on the rise a few benefits as to why it is on a rise are worth mentioning-
- Increased speed of production without human intervention and least assistance.
- Consistency in capping and even the degree of tightness of the caps can be monitored or changed with a tightener machine.
- Flexibility and Versatility- A lot of customizations are available and adjustable parts which can vary when you decide to change the line of production or upgrade your capacity of production.
- Reliability- All the products become of uniform grade and the caps are sealed always in the same manner, neither too tight nor too loose with the help of Pharma cap sealers.
- Product Security- These cappers ensure the end product reaches the shelf and the consumer in a tamper-free manner and which of course increases the life of the product.
The ones who package it or the ones who supply it are not the only ones who benefit from the ability of cappers but also the consumers who get the advantage of receiving secure products.
