Lidder with Sorting Elevator

Link Pack

Our Lidder with Sorting Elevator is a piece of simple entry-level machinery that reliably sorts and places lids for tin, composite cans or other container types. Fill the hopper with bulk container tops, and the correctly positioned ones travel up the elevator and are blown down the lidder chute for application to canisters or containers. Once in place the lids are closed with by a roller press to securely seal the contents in the container or canister.  Finished items can be picked manually or head onto a rotary accumulation table. Designed to be user-friendly, efficient, and low maintenance, it also offers reliability. Our Lidder with Sorting Elevator is rated IP65 and perfect for food production environments and is ideal for improving line productivity and reducing labor costs.



Our Lidder with Top Sorting Elevator can be integrated to a variety of lines, and is often paired with our Tamper Evident Labeler With Container Orientation.
