The Details

The Genesis PW Westcapper® is a fully automated capper using 3 spinning rollers as the sealing mechanism. The hoppering system uses a gravity fed vibratory bowl or a mechanical bowl depending on the model selected. As the starwheel indexes, the stoppered vials pass under the cap feed, pick a cap and vials progress to the sealing area. The adjustable spring loaded vial rest and a fixed pressure block compress the stopper while the skirt of the cap is reformed under the locking finish of the vial. The three spinning rollers roll the skirt into place. The starwheel now indexes the vial onto the discharge conveyor. Vial flow is from left to right. Rolling casters are standard, with stationary legs available as an option. Depending on the model and vial size, the PW capper has a maximum variable speed of 120 vials per minute. The OSHA compliant safety enclosure is wired to alarm and shut down the capper whenever it is opened during operation.

Options available for the PW Westcapper® include PLC Controls, Capper Optimization, Missing Stopper Detection (which uses a sensor mounted on the indeed conveyor to stop the machine if a vial passes with a missing stopper), Integration as well as a Validation Support Package.
