Shibuya Hoppmann designed a Sports Cap Feed and Capper Assembly System for a major closure manufacturer. The system feeds, orients and assembles spouts and locking caps at an output rate of 200 ppm using an eight-station continuous motion assembly system. Each station had an individual servo motor to precisely torque each cap assembly to preset specifications.
Shibuya Hoppmann's custom designed Bottle Feed System uses unique urethane scallops to singulate and orient empty 2 ounce energy drink bottles. The system then ionizes and flips them 180˚ and takes them downstream to filling operations at an output rate of 525 bottles per minute.
