CC720 Screw Cap Tightening Torque Head

CC720 Screw Cap Tightening Torque Head

Introduction – CC720 Screw Cap Tightening Torque Head

The CC720 Screw Cap Tightening Torque Head is at the heart of all of our Capping Machines. Introduced over 15 years ago, the CC720 has undergone several changes, but the fundamental method of the gripping jaw technology has remained the same.

Our latest version, the Mk. VI, is a high specification torque head. All of the components are fully machined to precise tolerances to achieve the aim of accurate and consistent torque values. Which are now required in modern machines and working environments.

We can supply the CC720 to you in two ways; either in one of our machines, or by itself for you to install into your own equipment.

Designed to cater for various styles of screw caps, from Ø10mm – to Ø120mm, our torque heads have the capability to handle most types of caps available, including; child resistant, tamper evident, pump-action spouted, jerry-can ribbed caps and even trigger-spray caps.

Standard Basic CC720 Torque Head

The standard basic cc720 Torque Head, also known as the ‘No rise and Fall’ Torque Head, comprises a driven rotor assembly and gripping jaws, mounted on a back plate for you to fit into your own machine. This enables you to control the vertical movement of the torque head and can therefore be used for simply cap tightening or for ‘Pick and Place’ operations.

The standard unit is supplied with an electric servo motor, which allows independent control of Speed and Torque within accurate limits.

A pneumatic motor option allows for the torque head to be used in Zone 1, Hazardous Environments, and can be supplied with the necessary ATEX Certification.

2-Jaw or 3-Jaw versions of the Rotor assembly are available, depending on the application.

Change part rubber lined gripping jaws are available to suit all types of cap, from Ø10mm – Ø120mm, as standard. Other sizes may be available on special order.

CC720 Torque Head with Torque Transducer

We have teamed up with Sensor Technology to produce a new Capping Torque Head with a built in torque transducer.

The Torqsense transducer accurately measures the torque applied to the cap on the bottle, and will supply digital and analog data which will give proof of performance, consistency and batch tracability during the capping operation. The data can be used and displayed in several ways. On a simple panel mounted digital display.

Using a laptop PC running Sensor Technology’s ‘Torqview software package, which will display the applied torque in digital and graphical modes and also enable the torque readings to be stored on the hard drive for analysis later.

Using an analog input of the machine control PLC to check that the applied torque values are within the limits set by the manufacturer and raising alarms if the values fall outside these limits.

Using a digital recorder which will provide validation and secure data collection compliant with 21 CFR Part 11 regulations.

The new torque head can be incorporated into Cap Coder’s extensive range of automatic capping machines, allowing for constant monitoring of the applied torque during a production run.

There is also available a enhanced version of their popular CC1440 semi-automatic cap tightening machine which incorporates the new torque head, an ABB SM500F digital recorder for secure data collection, and applied torque monitoring through the machine control PLC.
