Zalkin stresses the importance of performing the routine maintenance on your capping heads, headslides, and chucks. Zalkin typically recommends rebuilding capping heads and chucks every 6,000 hours and headslides at 18,000 hours. Zalkin recommends annual audits to ensure that your plant conditions do not warrant more frequent maintenance. As with any type of machinery, proper maintenance will ensure optimal performance and will significantly increase the life of your heads, headslides, and chucks. Performing the annual maintenance will also lead to improved efficiency, less bad cap applications, and fewer rejections. Check the Maintenance Plan in your manual to ensure timely maintenance on these vital assemblies.
