  • Remove all contents from jig box.
  • Unwrap handles and locate screws
  • Orient handles with the finger opening towards the bottom.
  • Screw handles onto the sides of the jig plate.  There are pre drilled holes on the plate that will guide the placement of the handles.

Filling

  • Place cartridges (B) in the jig (A) and press down to make sure they are all seated properly into the pockets.  If using different jigs for different products, make sure you have the correct jig.
  • Place the alignment sheet (C) onto the tops of the cartridges so that it is touching the top of the foam.  The sheet has a beveled. edge on one side of the holes.  Place the beveled edge side down for easiest alignment.
  • Place the jig with the cartridges and alignment sheet inside your automatic filling machine.
  • After filling, take the jig out of the filling machine and remove the clear alignment sheet (C). (Leave the cartridges in the jig.) If the sheet is not removed before capping, it will get stuck between the two pieces of foam.

Press Setup

Please Note: 
The press is very heavy and comes in greased up so it does not rust in storage.  It just needs a little wipe down and it is good to go.  The jig is very user friendly.

Step 1

Unbox your new press.  Adjust the adjustment nuts higher to lift the press head away from the press base.

Step 2

Wipe off your press using a dry towel.
NOTE:  Do not excessively remove the food grade grease on the bearings.  This lubrication is needed for proper function of the press

Step 7

Make sure the press base (F) and press head (E) are level side to side and front to back so it presses all carts evenly.  Use a level tool to ensure this.

Step 8

Tighten the nuts with the wrench provided (F). Hold the press head (E) while tightening the nuts to keep it from tilting.
NOTE: Make sure the adjustment nuts are tight at the beginning of every shift to avoid mis-capping.

Step 10

To cap, pull down on the lever fully until you hear, see and feel the mouthpieces seating into place.  If you do not hear a strong click noise, you may need to adjust the press head closer to the press pad.  Pressing again after rotating the jig 180 degrees can help.
