Capping & Coding

Capping and coding machine


No matter how precise filling operations are, product and patient safety wouldn’t be complete without reliable closing and capping. For example, our portfolio includes several overseal capping machines for vials and infusion bottles that make it possible to fine-tune operations to different stopper/cap combinations. Gentle and precise transport systems further secure product safety, while our inline coding and verification solutions enable the tracking and identification of each filled and sealed vial.

VRK – Capping/crimping machine

When safe pharmaceutical production meets easy handling and high efficiency, we’re talking about Syntegon’s VRK overseal capping machine. The equipment series for vials and infusion bottles ensures best-in-class vial crimping: you can adjust rotation speeds, using individual crimping discs per container for enhanced precision. Reproducible machine settings contribute not only to reliable processes, but also to easy process validation, thereby increasing pharmaceutical safety. 

  • Hygienic design: low contamination risk and simple cleaning
  • Central fine-tuning for stopper/cap combinations
  • Easy integration with barrier system lines (RABS or isolator)
