The co.'s AROL S.p.A. Division has unveiled the NEXT Ultraclean rotary capper for applying pre-threaded plastic caps on glass, PET and HDPE bottles. Available in both a free-standing and a turret configuration, the capper has from 15 to 36 heads for production speeds from 500 to 1,200 bottles/min. The capper has been designed to be completely washable—from the upper part of the piston-holding cam to the closure-processing plane. All metal parts are stainless steel, while all plastic parts are said to comply with the FDA's food-contact requirements. The capper applies caps from 1 to 3 plus threads.
