Rigid Container Closing Equipment

Equipment used to seal, lid, or otherwise close highly rigid containers for solids or liquids including processes such as crimping aerosol cans, applying pumps to plastic bottles, and sealing pails of paint.

Machines that close a filled aluminum or other metal can by folding and pressing another metal piece over the opening thereby forming a leak-proof seal, such as seaming beer or cat food cans.

Closing equipment used to seal glass bottles by inserting a cork into the top of the bottle in applications such as wine bottles.

Used for applications such as perfume spray bottles, crimping machines apply caps or buttons that are joined to the main metal seal to add the functionality of releasing liquid products from the package when depressed.

Heat sealers and conduction sealers use the direct contact method to heat foil laminates during sealing of various types of packaging.

Using an electromagnetic field, these rigid container sealers heat to apply inner foil seals, often as a tamper-evident feature for glass or plastic bottles before they are overcapped.

Machines that align, fit and close pails with plastic or metal lids, such as in paint can applications.

Packaging machinery that applies plugs and fitments to a container, such as vial plug in a liquid pharmaceutical operation.

Also known as pump placers, these closing machines place a dispensing pump or spout onto the mouth of a rigid container, such as in window cleaner bottles. Pump sorters are also included here.

Machines that apply a plastic band, often called a neck band, usually over the neck and cap of a bottle, that is then shrunk tightly as a tamper-evident feature.

Rigid container sealers that use high frequencies to weld or seal two pieces of plastic together, such as a fitment to a food or beverage carton.
