MT/VX automatic single head ROPP capper

The MT/VX is a durable, high-build quality automatic capper for applying roll-on-pilferproof (ROPP - see Application) caps to bottles.

Caps are fed through an automatic vibration feeder and are distributed directly onto the bottle. A 4 roller no cap, no roll™ threading head applies pressure to the cap on the bottle, and forms a thread, creating a seal between the bottle and cap, and a tamper evident seal.

  • Capacity: <2500 bottles per hour

NB Capping heads are made specific to each size of cap. It is important to use the correct machine for your product - see Application.

Installed & commissioned by our Engineers.

Please contact us on 01404 892 100 to discuss your capping requirements.

We've supplied & installed multiple MT/VX capping machines over the years. Please ask us about our customer Case Studies.

 

Can be used with our ROPP Caps (part codes 98793, etc.), provided the capping head is manufactured specifically to suit the specific size of cap.

Please see the Cappers category in Catalogue for our full range of capping machines.

Application

Roll-on-pilfer-proof (ROPP) caps are made from aluminium. The thread is formed as the cap is applied to the bottle. The rotating capping head descends onto the bottle and small wheels mould the cap to the bottle thread and tuck the break-away tamper-evident seal under the rim on the bottle.

Capping heads are made specific to each size of cap. Heads can be changed on the machine to allow the application of different sizes of cap with the same machine.

It is important to use the correct machine for your product. Different machines apply different amounts of pressure to the cap when the thread is formed. Bottles containing oils need less pressure than those containing free running liquids or carbonated products. Using the wrong machine with a carbonated product could lead to an insufficient seal forming, and gas could escape from the bottle, especially when pasteurising. We can advise on the correct machine and capping head for you.
