Cap Feeders and Elevators

Bulk transfer Cap Elevators are used to supply automatic systems with parts needed. Because of the quantities required by the machines, elevators are used to eliminate constant manual filling of needed parts to the machine. This equipment is sized around the parts to move, quantity needed and the amount of supply required. Typically the design is a hopper built around a flighted belt placed on an angle and fed to a desired drop height. The operation of the elevator is activated via a switch of some type that monitors the fill level of the cap feeder bowl.

Cap Elevators

Waterfall style fully automatic cap feeders combines 3 functions in one machine:

  • Bulk Hooper
  • Elevator
  • Orientor

Highly efficient cap orientation and plant floor utilization. This type of cap feeder orientates based on the geometry of the closures. Parts are gently lifted up from the bulk hopper. Properly orientated caps continue traveling vertically to the discharge chute. The properly orientated closures are then conveyed to the capper through a chute or a conveyor.
