Capping Solutions Tailored To You
Every bottling plant has one or more bottling lines. These bottling lines can have a capper of whatever brand the plant chooses. Each plant is bottling its own set of caps and bottles. This means that every capping application is different. Even if two bottling plants have the same capper, they will probably be capping different bottles or caps. These different bottles and caps result in different capper configurations. This reality presents a challenge to aftermarket capping equipment suppliers. Other capping equipment suppliers approach this challenge by ordering the customer to reconfigure their machine to fit their product. Precision Tork located in Midland, Michigan takes a different approach. Precision Tork tailors its capping products to fit the customer’s capper existing configuration out of the box.
How We Provide Expert Capping to Our Customers
One thing that sets Precision Tork apart from its competitors is how it approaches the installation of replacement equipment of bottling machines. Precision Tork’s team of expert engineers will work with the client to determine how a new solution should be customized to fit their application. The brand of the client’s capper does not matter. Precision Tork’s headsets, chucks, and knives can be engineered to fit any brand or capping configuration on the market. To do this they might ask for a few measurements and some cap or bottle samples but once they have this they can get right to work. All the client has to do when the new equipment is received is pop off the old equipment and pop on the new equipment.
If the client decides to go with a different capping provider there might be a bit more work involved. If the provider is overseas then they will have to deal with higher prices and longer lead times. But even if the provider is domestic, they still might have to reconfigure their capper to fit the new equipment. Doing so has risks if the maintenance staff are not properly trained on the subject. There are many things that can go wrong when reconfiguring a capper. Each issue can result in capping performance problems that require stopping, adjusting, and starting the machine again which increases the downtime of the line. In addition, if capping performance issues are not caught after a reconfiguration the line could end up with an increased number of bottle rejects or degraded life of the new capping equipment.
Sometimes the client may want to improve their capper’s performance beyond the updated capping equipment from Precision Tork. This is where Precision Tork’s expert capping team comes into play. This team is able to optimize the configuration of a capper to achieve the capper’s maximum performance. Once finished the capper will be running at the maximum speed possible for the provided cap and removal torque requirements while also having a reduced quantity of bottle rejects. They can also set up training for a plant’s maintenance staff so that the client can do it all themselves.
