Automatic Capsule Filling Machine

High Speed Capsule Filler

Our high-speed automatic capsule filling machine is designed to fill hard gelatin capsules with powder, pellets or granular materials. They are durable and reliable capsule fillers that fill empty gelatin capsule dosages to the highest accuracy. The fully automatic capsule filling machine's operation is very smooth, with low noise, simple to operate, and easy to maintain and clean. These capsule fillers are built to meet the worlds most advanced hard shell capsule encapsulating production requirements. Our capsule fillers will work with hard gelatin capsules from sizes 000, 00, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. All parts are made of high quality stainless steel to meet the cGMP Standard. We integrated only SIEMENS electrical components and SIEMENS PLC for reliability.

United Pharmatek's High Speed Automatic Capsule Filling Machine has a finished product output range up to 2,500 capsules per minute on our Model UAC-2500C Capsule Filler. Each capsule filler is designed to increase production rates and decrease the time required to get product to market. With its high filling rates, and fully automating the capsule filling process, United Pharmatek's capsule fillers allow for minimal operator training, lower productions costs, and reduced wastage. Quick change over time offers the customer the ability to run many products or one product continuously making them suitable for types of manufacturers in the pharmaceutical, nutritional, foodstuffs and chemical industries who require a low maintenance, large scale production capacity. The enclosed turret design makes for simple clean up and maintenance.

Each capsule filler automatically orientates, opens the empty hard gelatin capsule, properly fills the capsule with powder, and automatically closes the capsules. Our Automatic Capsule Filling Machine is suitable for filling capsule sizes ranging from #00 to #5. Utilizing the tamping style system, each tamping station can be adjusted individually for precision weight control. An adjustable gap between the Dosing Disk and the Tamping Plate ensures minimum spillage of powder. The capsule filling machine includes sensors for both product hopper and empty capsule hopper to ensure continuous uninterrupted operation. Defective capsules such as unseparated capsules are automatically ejected during the operation through vacuum suction. Air blow out pins clean the segments after the capsules have been ejected and the complete capsule filling process is repeated for a fully automatic operation.
