Kinex Kinetic Bottle Capper
Powered by a fractional horsepower AC motor, Kinetic Capping Machines are strong and fast, delivering a torque range of 4-100 inch.lbs., and capable of closing up to 50 bottles per minute. Very comfortable to use, the Kinetic™ capping machine suspends weightlessly from the included suspension system. Featuring a direct plug-in cord; no separate power supplies are required. It comes completely equipped with everything you will need to get started, including 5 torque-adjusting weights, a suspension system, an anti-rotation mat, one chuck, and your choice of four urethane or white rubber liners.
How it Works
The Kinetic™ capping machine works on the kinetic energy principle, where energy increases as speed or weight increases.
The amount of torque applied to the cap is determined by the speed at which the chuck is spinning in combination with the weight of the chuck and the torque-adjusting weight you are using. The Kinetic™ capping machine comes with 5 torque adjusting weights.
Since the speed of the machine is fixed, and the weight of the chuck is determined by the size of the cap you are tightening, the way to adjust the torque is by changing which torque adjusting weight you use.
Adjusting the Torque on the Kinetic™ Capping Machine
To increase the output torque, add a more significant weight onto the chuck sleeve. To decrease the amount of torque, add a smaller weight onto the sleeve of the chuck. For some applications, you may find that using no torque adjusting weight will provide the appropriate torque output.
