Home » Capping » Pluggers
Pluggers, or Plug cappers, are designed to apply plug caps or stoppers to containers. Plugger cappers seal containers by being inserted into the neck of the container. Plugger caps are designed to fit into or around a specific size neck and to fit tightly inside the container neck or tightly around the container neck to secure the seal. Plug caps are often made from plastic or rubber. Plug cappers are designed to apply plug caps to the neck of a container. As the container passes the plug capper, a plug cap is placed into the neck or on the neck of the container. To seat the plug cap to the neck, the pluggers apply pressure to the exposed top of the plug cap to properly seal the container. Capper pluggers are very simple devices and by extension, plug cappers are also relatively simple machines (when compared to other types of cappers).
