Automatic Capsule Filling Machine with Capacity Upto 90000 Capsules/Hour

LCF Model Fully Automatic Capsule Filling Machine has the capacity of filling up 90000 capsules/hour for different variants of powder formulation. Accurate filling is achieved with the help of this auto capsule filling machine model that has the potency to encompass variety of hard gelatin capsule with size ranging from 00 to 4. The fill material can be granules, powder, or pellets individually or in different types of combination of Pallets and Powder with high precision. The latest tamping pin technology is implemented in formation of slug that is pushed in hard gelatin capsule with accuracy by Automatic Capsule Filler. The company boasts of having more than 20 years of experience in designing filling machineries that is quite evident with the technology involved in developing the fully automatic capsule filling machine that securely fills and closes the capsules.

The machine control is by means of a programmable logic controller with touch enabled “Siemens” make human machine interface with a very user friendly operable front end. To meet the needs of different applications, fully automatic capsule machine is available in various models. The machine is able to produce a minimum of 25,000 capsules that can go as high as 90,000 capsules. To ensure that the entire operation is devoid of any complications, it is recommended to have a 3-phase supply powering the filling machine. The fact that it consists of dosing tools that perform precise operations makes it achieve high efficiency. This has led to an increase in presence of capsule filler in numerous pharmaceutical industries. The fully automatic capsule filler or capsule fillers have their frames manufactured from stainless steel 316/304 to ensure durability and stability.

There are several equipments in the automatic capsule filling line machine that aids in making the entire operation highly efficient. Some of the capsule filling line machines are Automatic capsule sorter elevator, Metal detector, Automatic capsule polishing machine, Empty capsule ejector, Damage capsule sorter. Empty capsules of finest quality are fed to the capsule filling machine hopper with the help of empty capsule sorter. with the help of sorting plate, the defective capsules are sorted effectively and perfect sized capsules are transported to the hopper of capsule filling machine with the ease of operation. The metal detectors spot any trace of metal in the content. Any dust particles that get stuck to the surface of the capsules are removed with capsule polisher & rejecter. Some of the capsules may get distorted during the operation and hence they must be removed. A damage capsule sorted is provided in the line to perform this desired operation.

Special Features of Fully Automatic Capsule Filling Machine

  • The machine is designed as per the cGMP standards with more focus on its ability of handling powder dust. It has a main turn table to prevent the dust particles from interacting with the mechanical parts of machine.
  • Automatically capsule filling machine comprises of an enclosed dosing system that helps in reducing clean frequency through dust suction.
  • Vacuum cleaning station is provided in the filling line that is primarily meant for segment clean-up in each cycle.
  • It makes use of vacuum for capsule separation.
  • A fully automatic capsule filling machine consist of following parts, user-friendly controls like Touch Screen HMI: automatic/manual/parameter setup modes, production counter, alarms.
  • To minimize the requirement of the adjustment after the parts changeover, dosing disk along with capsule segments are provided that performs precise operations.
  • The presence of transparent safety interlock guards and stainless Steel 304 frames imparts the machine durability and the capability to have a long life.
  • It holds the potential to accurately separate wide range of capsules without causing damage of any sort.
  • The machine has a provision of Automatic rejection system that is used for detection of Non – separated/ improperly inserted capsule top caps.
  • The dosing tools of the machine is highly precise and this along with the process of fill weight adjustment being performed quickly provide assurance of high working efficiency of the machine.

Operating Procedure of Automatic Capsule Filling Machine

  • Empty capsules are fed in the hopper
  • One row of capsules released in rectifier track
  • The direction of capsules is rectified and they are pushed into the hole with caps on upper side
  • The capsules are sent to different workstations with the help of a turntable
  • Capsules are separated with the help of a vacuum
  • Capsule bodies are filled with the powder and pins push the powder
  • Capsule bodies and caps are rejoined
  • Non-separated capsules are ejected
  • The holes are cleaned for the next operation cycle
