Automatically Cap Multiple Press-On Mouthpieces

The TPM Mouthpiece Press is designed to automatically cap multiple, press-on mouthpieces for tamper resistant press style cartridges and devices. Capable of capping up to 252 cartridges at one time, the 30 ton TPM is the product of several years of development by Thompson Duke Industrial based on the real world requirements of industrial scale cartridge filling operations using technology to precisely align and seal your filled press-on cartridges rapidly, reliably and consistently.

Easy, Safe Operation

Two-button automatic control with the ability to control 1-30 tons of pressure with 200lb increments. Auto-locking safety door interlock and impact-resistant windows protect operators. Machine enclosure rests on casters with leveling feet for easy, safe maneuvering and securing. Very low maintenance system. Food grade hydraulic oil and stainless enclosure ensure easy cleaning and system management. The 120VAC hydraulics require no compressed air system.

Precision Touchscreen Control System

Intuitive and simple touchscreen control allows for easy automatic and manual control of entire capping process. Pressure-controlled operation guarantees applied force stays within operator-defined cartridge tolerance regardless of device height. Built-in fixture geometry aligns mouthpiece to cartridge for a straight press.
