The Art of Stacking Caps

The Art of Stacking Caps


Stacking caps as efficiently and precisely as possible is essential to streamlining numerous packaging, manufacturing, and logistics processes. Cap stacking technologies date back to the beginnings of industrial automation, as companies sought ways to increase quality and efficiency in operations by improving upon manual processes. With automated cap stacking solutions, manufacturers can simultaneously optimize throughput and economy of space, all while reducing costs, manual labor, and product handling mistakes.

The Role of Orientors in Cap Stacking

An orientor is necessary to maintain proper cap alignment in cap stacking systems. Particularly useful for high-speed applications, orientors deliver enhanced dependability, consistency, and efficiency in stacking and packaging operations. Integrating an orientor into a cap stacker from Big Sky Engineering, Inc. and CapTech Automation, LLC will help streamline your process while enhancing alignment accuracy.
