Capping Machines

The CRS (continuous rotary) & LI (linear) motion capping models offer closing/ capping solutions for aseptic injectable, oral, nasal spray and opthalmic applications up to 200 cpm (cappings per minute). These sytems can be integrated with a vial washer, depyrogenation (sterilising) tunnel, filling/stoppering machine, freeze dryer and freeze dryer loading systems, external vial washers and tray loaders to provide an integrated full line solution. Machines are compatible with RABs or isolator enclosures.

Crimp cappers control vertical force during the closing operation by means of servo drives. For screw cap applications, application torques can be monitored and recorded using a strain gauge option.

Systems are 21 CFR Part 11, audit trail capable and feature a stainless steel construction with tempered glass doors and windows and stainless steel hinges with built-in safety switches. Their sanitary, raised track conveyor makes cleaning easy. No stopper, no cap pick up with a reject station available.


Compact design: Suitable for almost all manufacturing facilities

Dependable vial protection: Vertical force control during cap crimping and torque control/strain gauge feedback for screw capping applications

Ideal for containment and sterility: Compatible with Restricted Access Barriers (RABs) or isolator enclosures

Compliant with manufacturing regulations: 21 CFR Part 11 and audit trail capable
