Beverage
Chemical

Bench capper with pneumatic operation. Solid and robust, compact and easy to use, it allows you to carry out a perfect corking on various types of caps.

The complete version includes 3 kits for closing satin corks, synthetic agglomerate, crown caps and “Guala dop” type pressure caps or corks with wooden head.

The cork stoppers are manually inserted into the cone; by activating the two start buttons, the cork is introduced into the bottle with a compression principle which guarantees its perfect integrity.

Furthermore, thanks to the particular head used by this system, once the capping has been completed, the surface of the cap is perfectly homogeneous, without depressions or removal of material from the cap.
