Getting to Know CSI’s Capping and Cap Handling Machines

At Closure Systems International (CSI), we don’t just manufacture bottle caps. For bottlers or co-packers who need on-site capping equipment, CSI offers a range of bottle capping machines and cap handling systems. We also provide the option to purchase individual headsets and chucks, spindles, and cap delivery parts if you don’t want to replace the entire existing machine.

Keep reading this guide for a brief introduction to CSI’s bottle capping machines and cap handling equipment that can help minimize downtime, increase throughput, lower maintenance costs, and reduce closure defects.

CSI capping machines

Capping machines play an essential role in bottling automation. Although each system is typically customized to meet specific applications and production volumes, a capping machine’s main job is to apply a plastic or metal closure accurately and securely to a container or bottle.

Closure Systems International makes 10 different bottle capping machines to suit a wide variety of manufacturing needs, from a single-head inline capper that operates manually, to high-performance machines that apply plastic closures at the highest possible speeds. Here’s a quick overview. (And, you can click on the links to see more details on each.)

Traditional capping systems include a cap elevator, feeder or sorter that delivers a volume of closures to the capping equipment to then be sealed onto the container. Here are seven different cap handling machines Closure Systems International produces to efficiently move closures to the capping machine.
