I. Equipment Single Head Capping Machine Overview
Adopts stainless steel material, the machine is corrosion-resistant and easy to clean. With compact structure design, it takes up small floor space. Whereas, with high efficiency and reliability, it is a machine with high automation which requires only one operational personnel. It is an automatic filling and capping equipment combining mechanism, electricity and pneumatics into one.

(Note: The machine model YX-AC60 is fed by worker's hand for cap on the jars; it is optional to choose the Automatic Caps feeding system whose pictures is showed as below)
III. Equipment Installation
The machine does not require pre-buries anchor screws. After it is unpacked, place the whole machine on solid and flat floor and then adjust the machine leg screw height.
Use level gauge to correct any tilt to make sure every leg has even load bearing. Once adjustments are finished, connect and fix well the water inlet hose, waste discharging hose, power supply and air source.
IV. Using & Operation (Panel Functions)
1. Switch on the main power switch and the switch at the right of the equipment case, and then the human-computer interface displays the start-up screen as below:
2. Click on one of the icon, and the screen will be shifted to below:
3.0 Click the SET to enter into the below screen:
3.1 Capping Delay means when there is bottle sensed, the delay starts until the next movement. It adds convenience to the adjustment of different size bottles.
3.2 Capping Speed is the rotating speed of the capping motor.
Capping Setting displays the pulse value which shows the capping time and capping position.
Work flow of the capping goes bottle-clipping—capping-capping position resuming—bottle-clipping off. When the Capping Delay is with 0, it means no delay is set.
4.0 Click the corresponding digit box at the right of the parameters and below parameter adjustment screens will pop up, where CR is for clearing, ES for existing and Enter for confirming. When Clicking Manual, the mode will be shifted to auto mode, and the machine will run automatically.
5.0 Back to menu screen and click Manual at the bottom of the screen to enter into below screen. If separate manual operations are required, click corresponding switches to continue.
6.0 Back to the menu screen and click Check to enter into below screen. When the indicator is on, it shows the corresponding input on the PLC has signal input. See below screen:
|before machine start||touch screen displays startup screen|
|select language||screen turns to menu screen|
|click Manual at the bottom of the screen||Screen turns to manual operation mode||During manual run, click the corresponding number on the keyboard during commissioning|
|click Auto||screen turns to the auto mode||click auto start, all procedures will be started|
|click emergency stop||under emergency stop||Press the emergency stop if any abnormities occur during production and re-press it when abnormities are solved|
|bottle-clipping commissioning||There are screws for fixing bottle-clipping cylinder at the two sides of the conveyor. When the hexagonal socket nut M8 and star grip knob are loosened, it can be moved forward and backward to fix the bottle at the grip of bottle-clipping device||The bottle clipping tightness should not be two tight or too loose but be appropriate|
|capping commissioning||loosen the star grip knob and rotate the hand shank at the back of machine to||During capping, it should not be too high or low the contact of capping head and the bottle cap|
V. Illustrations of the PLC Input & Output
X1 Capping Detect: When there is bottle being sensed, the X1 indicator will be on. Then the delay starts, and the bottle-clipping and capping starts after delay finishes.
X0 E-stop: During normal situation, the X0 indicator will be off. When it is depressed, the machine will stop, and all movements will resume to their original.
Y0 Capping Pulse: when the Y0 indicator is on, it shows there is pulse at work.
Y2 Capping Direction: When the Y2 indicator is on, it shows the capping direction is at work.
Y3 Conveyor Motor: When the Y3 indicator is on, the conveyor runs.
Y4 Bottle-blocking Valve: When the Y4 indicator is on, it shows the bottle-clipping cylinder is working.
Y6 Capping Valve: When the Y6 indicator is on, it shows capping valve is working.
Y7 Bottle clipping Valve, When the Y7 indicator is on, it shows the bottle-clipping cylinder is working.
VI. Common Faults & Trouble-shooting
|1||power indicator Unlit or lit power indicator but machine without movements||no power supply or phase loss problem||Check if there is any problem with the incoming power supply and power supply in the cabinet.|
|2||The cylinder does not move or moves abnormally||whether there is air supply||open the air supply|
|there is no voltage with the solenoid valve||Check the circuit status by firstly check whether there is power supply with the corresponding working station in the cabinet. If there is, then check the external circuit.|
|throttle valve with inappropriate adjustments||Adjust the position of throttle value to when it rotates clockwise, the cylinder speeds up; when it rotates counterclockwise, the cylinder speed decreases.|
|3||Whether the parameters of time setting are appropriate or 0.||reset the time settings|
|4||capping not tight||bottle-clipping is not tight or spins or the capping time is too short||adjust the bottle-clipping device or increase the capping time|
