Used Rotary ROPP Cappers are used on unthreaded aluminum shells to place and apply pressure onto the closure while thread forming wheels spin around the shell and press against it in order to roll the threads of each cap conforming to the existing threads of the bottle. Used Rotary ROPP Cappers are used for these applications. Caps are fed single file down a chute to a chute end or escapement where caps are stripped one at a time by the neck finish of the traveling bottle. Caps are oriented to travel down the cap chute using several methods including vertical sorters, centrifugal sorters, vibratory bowl sorters, or elevator sorters depending on the cap and speed requirements. Used Rotary ROPP Cappers require bottle handling change parts: an infeed screw, infeed star wheel, and discharge star wheel are normally used. The method of controlling bottle rotation while the cap is applied varies depending on the machine design. A rotating turret with multiple ROPP capping heads are aligned with containers below using these bottle handling change parts. ROPP Capping Turrets are often integrated with a filler or rinser/filler to produce a monoblock filler/capper or triblock rinser/filler/capper.


Used Rotary ROPP Cappers are utilized because ROPP (roll on pilfer proof) closure cannot be removed from the bottle, without it being evident that the product has been tampered with. Used Rotary ROPP Cappers are extremely popular in the liquor industry but are also employed in the food, beverage, and pharmaceutical industries. Speeds are designated generally by the Rotary ROPP Capper’s number of heads. Used Rotary ROPP Cappers can be stand-alone machines or they can be integrated into a Monoblock Filler capper, or a triblock rinse filler capper.

Why it is Used with Cappers

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.
