New Warner Electric Magnetic Capping Headsets for Improved Efficiency in Bottling Operations
February 20, 2007 - South Beloit, IL - Warner Electric announces innovative new magnetic capping headsets that drop into new or existing rotary capping machines. These new headsets demonstrate improved performance over the traditional synchronous OEM headsets. Warner Electric Magnetic Capping Headsets feature smooth torque magnetic technology; eliminating pulsing, vibration, and its related product and maintenance problems. The headsets also provide fast, precise torque adjustment and long-lasting, dependable performance. The bottling industry has spent years struggling with the challenge of OEM capping machines using synchronous clutches with pulsating torque. OEM headsets tighten caps with a pulsating or hammering impact magnetic torque. This pulsating or hammering impact torque causes shock loads which lead to cap over-tightening, inconsistent removal torques, and accelerated wear on machine parts, especially spindle assemblies and retention knives. Warner Electric Magnetic Capping Headsets feature smooth torque magnetic technology. These headsets are magnetic, but the static torque is perfectly smooth, with no pulsations or pounding. Smooth torque technology reduces variation in removal torque, providing the most consistent torque control on the market. This technology reduces shock on the system, enabling longer life of machine components, retention knives, and capping headsets. Warner Electric Magnetic Capping Headsets have visual setting scales for top-load force and static torque adjustments. This makes it easy and quick to accurately set headset top load and static torque. All-stainless-steel construction, quad seals, and drain holes enable the unit to withstand frequent washdowns. Warner Electric makes it simple to upgrade existing equipment without expensive retrofitting or modification by providing drop-in replacements and 100-percent interchangeability with major OEM headset models. Most rotary capping machines can be easily retrofitted with this new technology, making the change both cost effective and time efficient.
