Twist Off Cap Systems

Shell Forming & Lining Technology

Meltog's NovaCap® equipment provides a cost effective, versatile shell Forming and Lining Technology for the manufacture of Twist Caps and Metal Closures.

Unlike other manufacturer, NovaCap® technology offers a significant performance advantage by combining the pre-curling, lug forming and lining operations into just one machine, using a special 3-tool arrangement and a Plastisol compound lining solution.

The 1st Tool Station or Pre-curl operation operation provides an even Curl and Lug formation.

The Plastisol compound is injected at the lining station which incorporates the Aterspin station ensuring the even distribution of the compound.

The caps are transferred via conveyor into the curing oven curing the compound in the finished caps.

The proven modular production line enables Meltog's customers to select the most suitable output speed. The concept also has the advantage of being easily upgraded by adding further NovaCap® machines to the line.
