West Air Crimp™ (WAC)

The West Air Crimp™ (WAC) 1000 is a semi-automatic handheld tool used for crimping and de-capping metal seals on glass and plastic vials.

This tool is simple in operation and utilizes air assist, operating at low pressures. This system includes a pressure gauge and air line and can accommodate a wide variety of seals through interchangeable “K” capping and decapping heads. Various accessories are available for custom configurations.

The WAC-1000 is normally operated on compressed air. It can also be operated on compressed gases such as nitrogen if the vials must be filled in a special atmosphere.

Accessory Kit

The WAC-1000 can be ordered with the WAC-1007 Accessory Kit which includes a holder, retractor cord, and counter balance. The kit relieves weight from the WAC-1000, making operation less labor intensive.

All Genesis Machinery Products crimpers have been designed and built for dependable, long-term performance. Parts, service, and consultation on your capping needs are available by calling our Exton, PA headquarters.

The WAC1000 is not guaranteed to perform reliably in sterile environments.
