Inline Spindle Cappers
A spindle capper is probably the most popular automatic capping machine for screw type caps. This capper applies the cap onto the bottles and then automatically tightens the cap using several sets of spindle wheels.
Spindle capping machines can be used with cap sorting elevators or vibratory bowls to completely automate the cap sorting process and application of the cap onto the bottles for continuous operation.

Available Upgrade Options – Cap Sorting Elevators and Vibratory Bowls
Cap Sorting Elevators and vibrator bowls are the most common and economical cap sorting systems used with fully automatic capping machines. Capable of handling multiple different cap sizes. The operator simply loads all of the caps into the hopper, The caps are then automatically sorted into a chute and applied onto the bottles or containers.
Cap Sorting Elevator
The cap sorting elevator comes in multiple sizes depending on your cap diameter. Not all caps are able to be sorted in a cap elevator. The elevator feeds the caps up a belt with slats in a way that most caps are properly oriented. The ones that get through are rejected in a reject chute. The caps are then fed into a chute the leads to the capper.
- For Flat caps up to 5” diameter
- 6 Cubic Ft hopper with 12” wide chain
- Low level sensor to automatically start / stop the feeding of the caps into the cap chute
- Dial indicators or rulers for quick change over
Vibratory Bowls are perfect for special types of caps that cannot be fed in a cap sorting elevator. The bowl is tooled to meet the needs of your cap. Not all caps are able to run on the same bowl. The bowl can be placed on top of certain cappers or on its own base. A properly tooled bowl will orient the caps so that they are all oriented in the same way. They are then fed into a chute that leads to the capper.
- Available in either 24” or 30” diameter
- Stainless Steel construction with Anodized parts
- Low level sensor to automatically start / stop the feeding of the caps into the cap chute.
- Manual or motorized up and down options
