Overcapping and Dome Capping

Request More Information ›

Overcapping and dome capping machines are often used in the food and beverage industry, where presentation and functionality are critical to the product's success. Dome caps are used to seal a second product into the lid of a package, creating a second compartment.

If you want to pair two products together, our dome capping machine enables you to seal a separate product into the lid compartment. Dome cappers can be integrated as an add-on to existing packaging equipment or used as a standalone system, depending on your specific needs. Dome caps are versatile and can be adapted to a wide range of products, making them an excellent choice for many manufacturers.

Overcapping systems place unfilled caps on top of your products. Overcapping machines are most commonly integrated with our inline filling systems.

Modern also offers dual-cavity container filling with our custom SL inline fillers as an alternative method to package two products together. We'll work with you to understand your specific product and specifications and tailor a solution that fits your needs. Our machines are of the highest quality and designed for maximum efficiency and reliability, ensuring that your product is packaged perfectly every time.

One of the primary applications for dome caps is in the yogurt industry, where consumers enjoy the convenience of having granola, candies, cookies, or other toppings packaged together with the yogurt. The caps often contain things like granola, candy, sprinkles, cookies, and fruit purees. In addition to capping yogurt, our customers also use dome caps on smoothies, milkshakes, cottage cheese, and more.

We can design cup and tray capping machinery for many applications. Here are some product pairing examples from our customers:

  • Yogurt with Granola
  • Yogurt with Cookies or Candies
  • Frosting with Sprinkles
  • Frozen Smoothies with Granola
  • Cottage Cheese with Fruit Purees
