GAMMA III Modular Cap Former

GAMMA III Modular Cap Former


The modular machine system GAMMA III is used for the further processing of deep-drawn parts for


  • twist-off caps (TO caps)
  • press-twist caps (PT caps)
  • and other closures and speciality cans


The modular design allows for

  • flexible machine concepts
  • individual arrangement and number of modules
  • simple replacement of complete modules in all modules
  • very short changeover times due to preset tool assemblies and transfer units
