Semi-Automatic Gasket and/or Spout Installer

This semi-automatic lid machine can be configured to install both O-ring style gaskets and crimp/press-on style spouts.

The gasket installer installs O-ring style gaskets with the assistance of an operator. The operator places the gasket loosely into the groove of the lid and then places the lid into the gasket installer’s drive plate. The cycle is then initiated by means of two Banner touch start buttons. The gasket installation area is guarded by a safety light curtain. During installation, the gasket is guided to the edge with a guided mechanical finger, the gasket is pressed into the groove by the gasket install wheel. There is the option to add gasket confirmation. Gasket confirmation will check for double gaskets, overlapped gaskets or no gasket. An error will signify a faulty installation.

As an option to the manual gasket installer, crimp/press on style spouts can also be installed. The operator manually places the fitment on to the lid as well as the gasket. When the machine is activated by the two banner style buttons, the top press pushes down on the cover and the fitment is pressed in from the bottom, followed by the gasket installation as described above.
