Modular Cap Former

Modular Cap Former

 

The GAMMA III Machine system is designed for the manufacturing of drawn parts for:

  • Twist-off caps (TO)
  • Press-twist caps (PT) and
  • Other closures

The modular design enables:

  • Flexible machine concepts
  • Individual arrangements and number of modules
  • Easy and fast exchange of complete devices in all modules
  • Very short changeover times due to preset tools and transfer devices

Modular Cap Sample
  • Modular Design
  • Four or eight working stations per turret
  • Drawn parts are separated and accelerated by an infeed worm and fed to the first module
1st Module – Performing


Preparing of edge of the shell for the following operation
Principle: die-forming

2nd Module – Precurling


Curling of the edge to the inner side using profiled tools
Principle: roll- or die- forming

3rd Module – Curling and Lug-forming


Finishing of the inner roll and forming of the lugs
Principle: die-forming

New: 4th Module – Forming of safety button


Forming of the safety button during the last step to eliminate possible deformation caused by the preceding operations
Principle: embossing
