Automation Devices, Inc.’s (ADI) capping division, Swan-Matic, has recently seen a growing need for capping devices from companies producing artisan foods including sauces and condiment type products. Swan-Matic manufactures a variety of handheld and bench top cappers and accessories that increase productivity and help to control costs.

Swan-Matic Project Manager Sean Parker has seen a significant growth in this market in the past few months. “More and more people are starting small or home-based businesses,” says Parker. “From everything to barbeque sauces to salsas to pickles, we’re seeing a variety of requests. It’s definitely a buyer’s market,” adds Parker. “With more options and product varieties available than ever before, more companies are adding their specialty products to the mix and are joining this niche market.

For many of them, manual capping is too strenuous and time prohibitive. Swan-Matic isn’t designed for large production companies, but suits these smaller companies that require less automation perfectly.”

Swan-Matic is a division of Automation Devices Inc. and provides capping solutions and accessories designed for small to medium production runs to a wide variety of industries. A variety of handheld and bench-top cappers make up this product line along with aluminum driver shells and renewable inserts. For more information, visit or call 814-474-5561.
