IRWINDALE, CA – May, 2014 – Pack West Machinery, a leader in integrated inline liquid filling and capping solutions, today announced that Home Hardware has successfully installed a new Automatic Inline Capper with Cap Elevator system in their Ontario, Canada facility. The 8-station spindle capper is designed to handle a wide variety of cap and container styles, shapes and sizes for their Home Care product lines, with run speeds up to fifty containers per minute.

Home Hardware selected Pack West after two of their employees attended the Pack Expo – Chicago show. “After visiting numerous corporate booths we felt that the Pack West model best suited our needs in terms of build quality, capabilities and price. We have been using this system now for a year and we have found it to be easy to operate (making set-ups very easy) and very reliable. We run a wide variety of caps and bottles on this line and this unit is definitely living up to our expectations.”

Pack West’s capping system is built to support three shifts, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. The machine includes Pack West’s infinitely adjustable container gripper system with repeatable, tool-less changeover and universally adjustable cap chute and escapement.
