Rotary Plugger Inserting Machines are designed to operate in continuous motion using a rotating turret, multiple Plugger placing heads, and bottle handling change parts. These Rotary Plugger Inserters are designed to use down pressure in order to insert a Plugger into the neck finish of a container. Just as in other rotary counterparts, bottle handling change parts are required to control the containers in question. Rotary Plugger Inserters utilize Multiple Plugger inserting heads place and insert the Plugger. Many times Pluggers are placed, and a standard cap is torqued onto external threads (pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, distilled spirits, other flow restrictions).


Rotary Plugger Inserters are available using various configurations dependent upon speed requirements as well as Plugger/container configurations. Rotary Plugger inserters lend themselves to higher speed applications. Rotary Plugger Inserting Machines are commonly used in the food, dairy, distilled spirits and cosmetic industries.

Why it is Used with Capping Machinery

Bulk Cap Elevator

Bulk Cap Elevators are used to automatically maintain the amount of caps in a cap sorter allowing for optimal sorter operation while eliminating the need for operators to load caps and maintain reasonable quantities of caps.

Usually, the operation of the elevator is integrated to the capper using a variety of cap level sensors.

Cap Blower

Cap Blowers use filtered air to blow caps to a cap sorter utilizing tubing that guides the caps to the cap sorter.

Cap Blowers can be advantageous because they can feed caps at a high rate, and can be placed further away from the sorter itself.
