ZC-PRISM Closure Inspection & Rejection Module

Zalkin Patent Pending Logo

The Zalkin ZC-PRISM offers multiple detection capabilities to help increase line efficiencies.

The new Zalkin Pre-Inspection & Sorting Module has been developed for high speed detection and control of defective caps.

The module can be integrated on new lines or retrofitted to existing lines.

The ZC-Prism is ideal for multiple industries and applications using flat caps.
