Snap-On Cappers

PackWest designs, manufactures and supports inline capping systems for press-in and snap-on closures. Our inline snap-on and press-in place capping systems are budget friendly and they are easy to operate and inexpensive to maintain compared to rotary capping systems. Container and cap changeovers are simple and frequently require no tools to complete. When required, a single tool is all that is needed.

PackWest inline snap-on and press-in capping systems accommodate a wide range of container sizes, shapes and types as well as a wide range of cap types and sizes. They are a great choice for caps designed for application using via top-force pressure. Examples include over-caps, friction fit caps, spice jar shaker inserts and plug caps.
