The Zalkin family of capping systems includes beltorque® belt driven cap applicators and capping systems.
Beltorque® capping systems typically include the following integrated components:
Beltorque® systems feature a space efficient footprint, ease of set-up and operation, and flexibility in terms container and cap types and sizes.
Beltorque® capping systems are widely used in the pharmaceutical and personal care industries. They are a perfect choice for plastic or glass cylindrical containers.
Beltorque® systems feature a patented PLC controlled belt-drive system that synchronizes the linear displacement speed of the container and the rotating speed of the closure. This exclusive technology delivers consistent applied torque.
Beltorque® technology uses parallel belts for screwing-on and tightening caps. This system provides positive container control throughout the capping process which delivers a repeatable and stable capping process with minimal cross threads.
The BT-IC uses direct pick-off technology to automatically place the cap on the container, and belts to screw-on and seal the cap to the container. Highlights include:
The patented and the complete torque application process for every applied cap is monitored in real time to support quality assurance and control.
The BT-ST automatically torques caps that have been placed on containers upstream from the capper. It completes the application process by screwing-on and tightening caps using the patented beltorque synchronized belt application system.
The Beltorque BT-ST system is an ideal, cost effective solution for production lines running multiple SKUs with multiple cap types. In such lines, manual processes are commonly used to place caps on containers, and the BT-ST does the rest.
The Beltorque BT-RT is an inline re-torquer typically used downstream from a cap induction sealer or for caps that require addition torque to complete the capping process. It completes the retorque process using a two-belt system.
Twin container gripper belts stabilize the containers as they proceed through the re-torquing process. The tightening belts apply the final torque to the caps.
Beltorque application engineers work closely with customers to design and configure the capping systems ideally suited to each application and production environment.
