The demands placed on capping machines in terms of performance and flexibility are ever increasing. We support all types of closures for the most diverse requirements in the pharmaceuticals and cosmetics as well as the food and drink industries. This ensures hygienic standards are achieved, thus allowing these machines to also be used as aseptic cappers.
