A Capsule Machine, Capsule filler, capsule filling machines, also called Encapsulators or encapsulation machines are machines commonly used in the pharmaceutical, nutraceutical industries to fill empty soft or hard gelatin capsules of various sizes with powders, granules, semi-solids or liquid substances containing active pharmaceutical ingredients or a mixture of active drug substances and excipients. This process of filling empty capsules with substances is termed encapsulation.
Our machines are specially designed to meet your unique production requirements from a Semi automatic capsule machine to fully automatic high speed production. United Pharmatek's capsule fillers incorporate the best technology to help you successfully and easily dispense accurate dosages for every capsule produced.
United Pharmatek's Fully Automatic Capsule Filling Machine finished product output can range from 900 gelatin capsules per minute up to 2,500 per minute. Each capsule filler automatically orientates, opens the empty hard gelatin capsule, properly fills the capsule with powder, and automatically closes the capsules. Our capsule filling machines are suitable for filling capsule sizes ranging from 00 to 4.
Method of capsule fillingis by utilizing the tamping style system, each tamping station can be adjusted individually for precision capsule fill weight control. An adjustable gap between the Dosing Disk and the Tamping Plate ensures minimum spillage of powder. The Automatic Capsule Filling Machine includes sensors for both product hopper and empty capsule hopper to ensure continuous uninterrupted operation providing the best method on how to fill empty capsules.

A Softgel Encapsulation Machine fills hermetically sealed gelatin shells (single piece - softge gelatin capsules) with a semisolid, liquid or suspension. Softgel capsules offer many benefits over other delivery systems as they are easy to swallow, have no taste (unless the gelatin is intentionally flavored) or unpleasant odors, and offer a pharmaceutically elegant appearance and perceived superior delivery system. Many consumers prefer softgels over tablets or hard-shell capsules. Soft gels provide excellent dose uniformity and better protection of active ingredients.
The softgel delivery system offers improved and consistent absorption of hydrophobic ingredients, which will not dissolve readily in water or in gastric or intestinal fluid, and when compounded in solid dosage forms, the dissolution rate may be slow and absorption may vary. Softgel capsules also offer more protection for oxygen susceptible ingredients.
