Using ELAU's exclusive solution for installing servo modules on rotary capping and labeling carousels, the Equatorque replaces clutches with a servo powering each capping head. This maximizes flexibility and assures consistently accurate closing torque.
Each capping head performs a torque self-calibration with every cycle. A sophisticated monitoring system detects closing faults automatically, including no cap, cap at incorrect angle, no container and rotation of container. A simple operation sets optimum cap/container/closing torque configurations. Adjustments can be made remotely while the machine is in operation.
Arol asserts that it is the world's largest maker of cappers by volume – because they work with such a variety of closures, including screw caps, press-on caps, corkers and crowners.
