The Head Changeover Tool is a time-saving tool designed to support capping heads during changeover operations.

The support tool improves overall safety by allowing operators to mitigate manual handling of heavy capping heads during format changeovers. This custom tool can be installed on any Zalkin capping system and can support 6 to 12 kg by utilizing a preloaded spring harness.
