Manufacturer of Automatic Capping Machine

Shanghai Tops Group developed an automatic capping machine that presses and screws lids on bottles. It presses the caps more precisely and retains them undamaged. It can adapt to different packing line speeds due to its continuous capping design.

Bottles with screw caps are available in many shapes, materials, and sizes. This machine is multifunctional and easy to operate.

Working Principle

The cap control system collects and positions the cap at a 30° angle. The bottle split device runs throughout the cap area, lowering the cap and covering the bottle’s mouth as it separates the bottle. The bottle advances on the conveyor belt, and the capping belt clamps the cap tightly as it passes through three pairs of capping wheels.

The capping wheels apply force to both sides of the cap, tightening the cap and completing the bottle capping procedure.

Working Procedure

The two essential components are the capping area and the lid feeding area.

Bottles arrive (could be attached to the auto packing line)

Convey →  bottles at a standard distance →  Lift lids → Place lids on → Screw and press lids →  Bottles are out.

Packing Line 1

The automatic capping machine can be combined with filling and labeling equipment to form a packing line.

A bottle unscrambler + auger filler + automatic capping machine + foil sealing machine are a few examples.

Packing line 2

A packaging line can be created by connecting the automatic capping machine with filling and labeling equipment.

A bottle unscrambler + auger filler + automatic capping machine + foil sealing machine + labeling machine are just a few examples.


More Details

lift capping machine
The conveyor lifts the caps, and the blowing device blows the caps into the track.
Two sensors on the track detect caps and start and stop the cap feeder automatically.
Cap dropping system
Cap dropping (chute): The cap automatically covers the bottle when it passes through the chute's exit.
Cap pressing part
Cap pressing component: When the capping wheel turns the cap, the cap pressing component provides pressure to the top of the cap.
Bottle clamp belt
A bottle clamp belt secures bottles while moving them forward with the help of the bottle conveyor at the bottom.
Three pairs of wheel twist cap
Three sets of wheels quickly twist caps off; the first pair can be reversed to quickly place caps in their proper position.
One button
To accommodate varying bottle heights, a single button adjusts the overall height of the capping device.
Wheels that allow the width of the bottle capping track to be adjusted to fit different bottle diameters.
Four switches
The width of each pair of white capping wheels is controlled by four switches, allowing you to fine-tune the degree of tightness.
Switch to open
Using the switch, you can open, close, and control the speed of the cap feeder, bottle conveyor, capping wheels, and bottle separator.

1. How to Confirm If the Machine Material is SS304 or SS316?

304 stainless steel is a multipurpose stainless steel that has a higher rust resistance than stainless steels in the 200 series. It is also better to have a high temperature resistance. The corrosion resistance of 304 stainless steel is outstanding, as is the resistance to intergranular corrosion. While 316 stainless steel the corrosion resistance and high temperature strength of 316 stainless steel have greatly improved. It has a high temperature resistance of 1200-1300 degrees and can be used in harsh environments.

2. Is The Machine Customized?

Yes, it can be customized according to the customer’s requirements. It is designed for use in an automated packing line and can add other processing equipment.

There are options:

Packing line 1

The automatic capping machine can be integrated with filling and labeling machinery to create a packing line. Some examples are: bottle unscrambler + auger filler + automatic capping machine + foil sealing machine.

Packing line 2

The automatic capping machine can be connected with filling and labeling equipment to produce a packing line. Just a few examples include a bottle unscrambler + auger filler + automatic capping machine + foil sealing machine + labeling machine.

3. What Bottle/Jar Shape can the Machine Handle?

The automatic capping machine can be applied to bottles with screw caps of different sizes, shapes, and materials.

Bottle size

It is suitable for bottles of 20-120mm in diameter and 60-180mm in height. Outside of this range, it can be adjusted to fit any bottle size.

Bottle shape

The automatic capping machine can cap bottles of all shapes and sizes, including round, square, and sophisticated designs.

Bottle and cap material

The automatic capping machine can handle different types of glasses, plastics, or metals. 

Screw cap type

Any kind of screw cap, such as a pump, spray, or drop cap, can be screwed on using the automatic capping machine.

6.What is the Use of the Machine?

The automatic capping machine is used to screw caps on bottles automatically. This is designed for use in an automated packing line. This machine is a continuous capping machine, not an intermittent capping machine. This machine is more efficient than intermittent capping because it securely presses the lids and causes less damage to the lids. It’s now widely used in the food, pharmaceutical, and chemical industries.

7.What is the Function of Each Part of Automatic Capping Machine?


-The blower blows caps into the cap track after the conveyor has brought caps to the top.

-The cap feeder’s automatic running and stopping is controlled by a cap lack detecting device. Two sensors are located on opposite sides of the cap track, one to determine if the track is full of caps and the other to determine if the track is empty.

-Inverted lids are easily detected by the error lids sensor. Error caps remover and bottle sensor work together to achieve a satisfactory capping effect.

-By changing the moving speed of bottles at its position, the bottle separator will separate them from one another. In most cases, one separator is required for round bottles, and two separators are required for square bottles.


-The bottle conveyor and cap feeder have a maximum speed of 100 bpm, allowing the machine to run at a high speed to accommodate varied packaging lines.

-Three pairs of wheel twist caps off rapidly; the first pair can be reversed to swiftly place caps in the correct position.


-Adjust the height of the entire capping system with just one button.

-Adjust the width of the bottle capping track with the wheels.

-Cap feeder, bottle conveyor, capping wheels, and bottle separator can all be switched to open, close, or change speed.

-Flip the switch to change the speed of each set of capping wheels.

Easy to operate

-The use of a PLC and a touch screen control system with a simple operating program makes work easier and more efficient.

-The emergency stop button allows the machine to be stopped immediately in an emergency, keeping the operator safe.
