    Read on to find out more about the individual types of Semi-Automatic Capping and Closing Equipment.


    Types of Semi-Automatic Capping Machines

    Twist-off caps

    The Pneumatic Capping Machine is a bench top unit suitable for closing twist-off caps easily and with great accuracy. It is robust yet portable, very easy to operate, and low maintenance.

    • Adapts to a wide range of cap sizes by changing only the cap chuck
    • Strong and reliable
    • Allows the operator to close around 400 – 500 bottles per hour

    Press-on caps

    The Pneumatic Cap Press is a bench top machine, designed to enable the easy fixing of press-on lids and caps to glass or plastic bottles. It has adjustable height and depth to accommodate a wide range of container heights and cap diameters.

    • High throughput, 400 – 600 containers per hour
    • Durable and hygienic construction for long service life
    • Bespoke press pads to suit shaped caps can be made to precisely suit your samples


    ROPP stands for Roll On Piler Proof, which is a type of aluminium cap. The thread is created by the capping head as it applies the cap to the bottle

    • Simple and intuitive to use – get started right away
    • Versatile design fits a wide range of cap sizes
    • Fully height adjustable for operator safety and comfort

    Vial Crimpers

    The Powered Vial Crimper is a benchtop crimping machine:

    • Designed for ‘plain’, ‘flip top/flip off’ and ‘flip tear up’ seals.
    • Quick and efficient to set up and use.
    • Crimping and de-capping of 13mm and 20mm seals.
    • Foot pedal reduces operator fatigue.

    Tube Closers

    The Adelphi Vesta 1C is a bench top semi-automatic plastic and laminate tube sealing, trimming and coding machine.

    Compact and robust in a stainless steel case with clear, simple controls, the Vesta 1C is a low maintenance solution particularly suited to those that want a reliable tube closing machine for laboratory and small batch production facilities.

    The operation is simple and intuitive:

    • One tube is placed in the first cup and the holder is moved by hand to the sealing position.
    • The two-handed start buttons are pressed for one second and the next tube is inserted in the second tube cup.
    • On completion of the sealing cycle the second tube is moved to the sealing position, which moves the first tube under the coding station automatically trimming and coding the sealed tube. While the second tube is completing the seal cycle, the trimmed tube is removed by hand and a new tube is placed in the first cup.
