CDS Manufacturing designed and built this automatic cap assembly system. The entire system consists of two individual machines performing the same operation. The machine automatically closes baby wipe style caps.
The operator loads caps into the hopper. The hopper supplies parts to a linear vibratory feeder. The feeder orients the caps and delivers them to an indexing dial that automatically closes the snap type lid.
