Manual Triblock (Corking / Wiring / Capsuling)
This Manual Triblock provides corking, wire-hooding and capsuling in a single machine.
It can be used for bottling in glass containers with a diameter ranging from 55 to 115 mm and a maximum height of 375 mm. The capping machine, made of stainless steel and equipped with safety guards, is suitable for the application of champagne corks and its target includes small and medium sized producers. The closing system of the corker consists of four jaws of hardened stainless steel ground with centesimal tolerance and is easy to disassemble for cleaning or sterilization. It can process corks with a maximum diameter of 30 mm and a max. height of 52mm. The wire-hooder is apt to the wire-hooding with 4-post wire-hoods with or without cap. The format change is performed through the simple substitution of the bottle holding cup. The machine is operated pneumatically. The wire-hood is loaded in the wire-hooding head manually, then the bottle is positioned on the bottle holding cup and the working cycle is started by pressing a two-hand control. When the cycle is completed the wire-hood is closed on the bottle but the eyelet is not folded against the bottle neck; this operation is made by hand.
The capsuling is suitable for the application of large sparkling wine capsules with maximum length of mm. 130. Its functioning is only pneumatic and the it does not need power but only compressed air. The application of capsules take place by 2 pneumatic membranes (the first fold and the second smooth down) with vertical movement of the turret. The work cycle starts by resting the bottle on a plane, after which the operator will put by hand the capsule on the bottle (the machine haven’t automatic feed) and through a two-hand control, the work cycle starts. The moment in which the operation is complete, the machine automatically stops, as do all its units.
