Cap folding /Slitting Machine

Today's tamper proof caps used in still water, filled products, carbonated drinks etc are made using post moulding operation called folding and slitting.
Folding process applies to tamper proof caps that uses folded flap type ratchet as they are easy to cap and is more efficient and fool proof system compared to conventional ratchet mechanism. The capping torque for these variant of tamper proof caps are very low and line rejections are to the minimum with minimum leak angle and better tamper proof function. The injection/compression moulded caps are normally dropped into a sorting bin and fed into a rotary type cap folding machine which folds the open moulded flaps into the locking position of the tamper evident band.


The detailed specification of the folding machine is given below for your reference.Slitting machine is the key machine in the process of manufacturing of a good quality tamper proof cap. This machine uses a rotary mandrel which feed the cap on to a sharp heated blade to cut/slit the one piece moulded cap into two parts connected with few no of finite bridges which breaks while opening of the cap and makes the cap a tamper proof cap.

The consistency in maintaining the uniformity in the sizes of the bridge is the key factor of this machine. Using length quality tooling and precisely machined rotary arm with the help of accurate blade grinding and heated blade, our slitting machines assures high degree of consistency with high output. Detail information on specification of our cap slitting machine is given below.
