A test-rig for the study of the parameters of the process of automated closing of containers with screw caps is designed and realized. The purpose of the developed test-rig is to study and manage the parameters of the process of automated closure of screw caps. The aim of the experiment is to create a regression model of the process of automated closure of screw caps, which takes into account the influence of certain factors.
