Cap Printers

Cap Printers

Kase Equipment offers a variety of closure printers: the KCP-2 (2 color cap printer), KCP-4 (4 color cap printer), KRCP-4 (4 color rotary cap printer), and the KICP (Kase Inside Cap Printer). Kase cap printers are capable of decorating multiple size caps continuously while maintaining production rates up to 4,000 parts per minute! Our sales team can assist you with determining the best printer for your production rate goals and product.

The K-2 and K-4 cap printers are chain driven linear machines and allow you to print up to 2 colors and 4 colors respectively. These machines and all other cap printers maintain positive control of the closure through feeding, pre-treatment, printing, UV curing, and box filling.

The Kase Rotary Cap Printer (KRCP-4) is a best seller! This 4 color printer is designed without chains, which will prevent stretching while it maintains concentricity of the decoration on the closure. Additionally, the KRCP-4 is equipped with a running register, allowing the operator to easily make adjustments while the printer is stopped or running.

The Kase Inside Cap Printer (KICP) is for printing the inside of beverageĀ caps and other small closures with logos, slogans, color art, or promotional information. This printer reproduces color art and fine lettering at speeds up to 4,000 pieces per minute! The KICP can be equipped with up to 3 colors; and can be placed in line with a top printer or can be in a stand-alone system.

An Automatic Packaging System is an available option for all Kase closure printers. The feed system has a high capacity hopper with a conveyor that feeds caps to the printer so that they are properly oriented for printing. After printing and curing (the UV curing system is built on the printer), another conveyor routes the printed closures to an inspection system and/or hopper where they are counted as they are dispensed into boxes. When the maximum count for a box is reached, a box shifter keyed to the counter moves a new box into position under the dispenser.
