The beltorque BT-ICL Lite Capper caps up to 150 bottles per minute with precise and gentle handling to help ensure product quality. This in-line solution handles a wide range of bottle shapes and sizes, as well as a variety of closure types, with simple mechanics that speed changeover and reduce maintenance.


Unlike traditional in-line cappers that use discs or spindles that wear and cause quality issues, every beltorque capper, including the BT-ICL, uses two pairs of belts to gently rotate and tighten caps. By synchronizing the speed of the bottle with the rotating speed of the closure, NJM’s innovative design applies precise torque that eliminates damage to the closure and minimizes cap skew and slippage.


The beltorque BT-ICL linear, continuous-motion capper is ideal for nutraceuticals, cosmetics, personal care products, pharmaceuticals, foods and more. It handles round, oval, square and rectangular bottles made of plastic or glass from 2 to 12 inches (51 to 305 mm) in height and from 0.5 to 8 inches (13 to 203 mm) in diameter. It can apply child-resistant, flip-top, screw and snap caps made of plastic or metal in sizes up to 4.75 inches (121 mm).


NJM’s BT-ICL is designed for fast, easy and accurate changeovers that are achieved in 15 minutes or less with no tools or fine tuning required. Compared to competitive systems, the BT-ICL minimizes manual adjustments with patented cap placement control, dedicated cap application changeparts, a self-adjusting cap chute and more.


To meet the needs of each customer, NJM can equip the BT-ICL with a container spacing wheel or other spacing device to accommodate various container shapes and sizes as well as product weights. When running heavy bottles, dual spacing wheels are used to control container back pressure. When running large bottles, fully-adjustable dual container gripper belts hold the bottle steady during capping. An optional, fully-integrated cap inspection system identifies skewed caps, missing caps, missing foil and fallen bottles and triggers an automatic, heavy-duty reject device. For customers who require more inspection, the standard, hi-speed beltorque features optional torque monitoring.


The BT-ICL is available with either a fully-integrated centrifugal bowl for tall caps or an elevator feeder for other standard closures. It can be equipped with a standard 5-cubic foot (0.14-cubic meter) cap hopper or an optional 9-cubic foot (0.25-cubic meter) cap hopper. The capper offers a compact footprint that is only 7 feet (213 cm) in length and can be mounted on a standard bottle conveyor. To reduce maintenance and improve durability, the BT-ICL’s chute and change parts are precision-machined from solid aluminum and stainless steel. The beltorque BT-ICL Lite Capper features an Allen-Bradley PLC and HMI, AC motors, heavy-duty construction, a stainless-steel cabinet and support frame.
