In a constantly evolving world, businesses face major challenges, arising from market fluctuations, a diversification of the customer’s needs, and constant regulatory changes. In this dynamic context, the adaptability of businesses becomes a key factor in their success.


CDA, a French manufacturer of filling, capping, and labelling machines, fully understands these challenges. Since its foundation, CDA’s commitment has always been to provide innovative and scalable solutions to support the development of its customers’ needs.


Flexibility is a fundamental element of CDA’s approach. Whether for its semi-automatic or automatic machines, CDA’s fillers, cappers, and labellers are designed to easily adapt to a wide variety of products, caps, and formats. This versatility allows its customers to react efficiently and proactively to changes occurring in their markets.


Several elements contribute to this flexibility, including:

  • Pneumatic cylinders: These components regulate the flow of products to ensure they are conveyed with precise spacing between each product. They can be located in various places, such as at dosing nozzles or labelling stations. CDA’s cylinders adapt to all shapes and sizes of products, offering a great flexibility of use.
  • Symmetrical centering devices: These bottle or drum centring devices are adjustable in spacing and adapt to almost all encountered shapes/formats: round, square, oval, rectangular. They are available for different conveyor widths and have multiple tooling options to adapt to products and effectively lock them.
  • Belt capping: Belt capping VS allows for sealing a wide variety of caps thanks to the combined action of two symmetrical belts pressing on the caps. It adapts to different cap diameters by adjusting the belt spacing and is available on several cappers of CDA.
  • Automatic centring: This feature centres the containers on the conveyor and holds them during a given operation, such as distributing a capsule for a wine labelling machine. CDA’s centring device can adapt to containers of different diameters, facilitating the transition from one format to another without requiring adjustments or tool changes.

Here are concrete examples of the flexibility of our packaging machines:

  • The VSA is an independent capping machine. This capping machine can operate 100% autonomously but can also be integrated with various CDA machines, including fillers such as the K-Net Auto and K-Line S. The VSA is equipped with detection cells to detect the presence of bottles and caps, ensuring a safe product’s conveyance and maintaining an optimal production rate of up to 1500 products per hour. The versatility of the VSA allows it to adapt to all types of caps, whether there are cylindrical caps like the ones with vertical ridges, screw caps, or hinged lids. It is also compatible with trigger caps used for sprayers or pump caps.
  • The Ninon Mix is the most versatile automatic labelling machine in our range. It can be equipped with cylindrical labelling stations as well as “konic” stations. This station allows the application of an “anamorphic” label on conical products (but can also adapt to straight cylindrical products). The integrated aligner facilitates the re-centring and alignment of flat products with a simple adjustment via a wheel (without changing tooling).


In conclusion, CDA’s filling, capping, and labelling machines represent a flexible solution. Their ability to quickly adapt to market changes and customer’s needs makes them an essential tool for companies wishing to remain competitive in a competitive environment.
