Flip Off Cap Sealing Machine

Automatic Flip off Vial Aluminium Cap Sealing Machine is compact model uses for sealing of glass vials. Machine is uses for flip off aluminium cap sealing of duly filled & stoppered injectable glass vials in pharmaceutical industry. Depending on the output required the numbers of sealing heads changes.

Salient Features

  • Complete cGMP model.
  • Suitable for PP/Flip off caps.
  • “No Seal in Chute - Machine Stop” system.
  • “No Stopper on Vial Before Sealing - Machine Stop” system.
  • Single motor synchronises conveyor, starwheels and platform turret and speed can be varied by the speed pot on operating panel.
  • Parts coming in contact with the vial/aluminium cap or exposed to the atmosphere   are made out of stainless steel for good housekeeping & GMP accordance.
  • Spring loaded free spinning sealing rollers eliminates any damage to aluminium caps and also allows greater flexibility of variation in the container neck diameter.
  • Sealing Pressure can be varied to suit different gauges and sizes of aluminium caps.
  • Variable A.C. frequency drive for speed adjustment.
  • Digital Vial Counter for counting number of sealed vials
  • Photo sensing device stop machine automatically in the event of no aluminium cap in delivery chute
  • A Special clutch device is incorporated on the infeed worm and Starwheel system for stoppage of machine in the event, vial is over turned or over diameter.
  • Acrylic Cabinet with Aluminium/Stainless Steel Structure for Machine.
  • Programmable Logic Control with GUI. (Optional)

Process Operation

Duly Stoppered vials are continuously fed from the conveyor of filling machine to the flat conveyor belt of sealing machine and move further through infeed worm for correct spacing and transferred to the infeed starwheel.

Aluminium caps kept in vibratory bowl automatically orient caps in right direction before entering the delivery chute. Vial during its rotation movement with infeed starwheel picks up aluminum seal from the retaining finger of delivery chute and correctly position on the vial before entering sealing turret. Vial now moves on the spring loaded sealing platform, where free spinning sealing rollers moves gradually inside to complete the sealing operation during rotational movement of sealing platform turret. Now sealed vials are transferred to exit starwheel pocket and further moves out on to the flat conveyor belt.

Duly sealed vials are collected on out-feed collection tray.
