New capping machine improves productivity in small manufacturing spaces

Jet Technologies has launched a new machine that caps jars for Australian and New Zealand food manufacturers.

The Smart Capper is a fully automated capping machine designed for production lines.

Capping machines help ensure a product meets food standards and consumer expectations.

Jet Technologies general manager Daniel Malki said the Smart Capper is a compact machine, so it’s suited to smaller manufacturing spaces while still capping at high speeds to meet production demands.

For food manufacturers that use jars for products such as sauces, spreads, olives and vegetables, the Smart Capper will help improve productivity through a reduction of reject rates on jar lids,” he said.

“This will also minimise wastage of lids, which saves on costs,” said Malki.

The machine is designed for ease of use and low maintenance, both in terms of time and cost.

It helps reduce any chances of “bottlenecks” in the production line.

Constructed from stainless steel, it can be cleaned easily. 

The Smart Capper, which is part of the Crown capping portfolio, is designed to provide the performance and variable speeds that Australian food manufacturers require.
