Semi-Automatic Capsule Filling Machine Model: LSCF is preferred for applications that require precise manufacturing methods for modern pharmaceutical procedures. The Semi Auto. capsule filling machine allows for higher degree of automation when compared to manual capsule filling machine, thus ensuring higher level of filling weight accuracy. This capsule filling machine is deemed apt for the operation of capsule filling of varying sizes with powders, granules or pellets. With the GMP standards manufacturing methods employed for semi automatic capsule filling machine, it comes with an all Stainless-Steel covering. The machine is capable of yielding high outputs, i.e. 25000 to 47000 capsules/hour that depends on the size of capsule and operator’s skill-set. It performs the operation of on line polishing & sorting. Polishing of the tablets do not require operators and there is no need for a separate storage for filled capsule. The semi-automatic capsule filling machine has a four speed auger that allows it to operate and fill different types of powder & pellets. Filling table of the machine has variable speed that aids in achieving high dosage accuracy. Semi automatic capsule filler incorporates automatic capsule loading system to ensure faster, safer, closure and ejection of filled capsules. It also has an automatic drug hopper in-feed mechanism to eliminate any variation in weight and thus ensures in high productivity.

The semi-automatic capsule line is equipped with automatic Capsule conveying system that transports the completely filled capsules to capsule polishing machine from semi automatic capsule filling machine or where they need to convey. The process is completely automatic without human hands interactions with the help of a pump that sucks and move the filled capsules. automatic polishing machine for cleaning the capsules. It uses a rotating brush to carry out the operation. The polishing chamber comprises of a rotating spiral brush that removes the powder particles from the surface of the capsules after being fed. This chamber is also connected to the vacuum cleaner to suck out the de-dusted powder in order to clean the chamber. The semi auto capsule filling line also comprise of an empty capsule ejector. It checks whether the capsules are filled or not and ejects those capsules that are empty due to some machine error. Capsule ejection takes place due to the air force applied on the capsules. Damage capsule sorter removes the diametrically distorted capsules from the lot and only allows the perfect sized capsules to pass through. It is a part of semi-automatic capsule filling line machine and ensures only well proportionate & sized capsules.

The entire arrangement of the semi-automatic capsule filler is quite uncomplicated. At first, the capsules are transferred to the hopper whose size varies from 00 to 5. In a separate corkscrew driven hopper, the powders are again transferred that ensures a constant fill in every single capsule. Vacuum sucker is also utilized in this process for the purpose of sorting the capsules individually and later fill them into the loading rings (size differing from 00 to 5). The operator, then makes use of vacuum in order to bifurcate the capsules.

After the capsules get separated through the above process, loading rings are pulled apart that releases only the bottom section. In the filling part of the machine, this bottom section is stationed along with loading rings after which the operator begins the process of filling. The capsules rotates below the filler as they move across the capsules. With the help of corkscrew, these powders are evenly pushed down into the capsules. Hence, it is made sure that every capsule is similar in weight and size. The loading rings are then later, placed back together as they were before in the sealing section of the capsule filling machine. The guards are closed by the operator, once these rings get aligned. For the purpose of sealing the capsules, air pressure is used after the closure of guard and then the capsules are finally removed from the loading ring.

The filling line accommodates a capsule polishing machine that consists of a set of corkscrew brush bristles and a dust extractor unit. Any presence of dust particles are removed with the help of vacuum to achieve capsules of superlative quality.

Salient Features of Semi Automatic Capsule Filling Machine

  • The semi automatic capsule filling machine has a great production rate of up to 45,000 capsule/ hour.
  • The polishing & sorting of capsule is performed on line in the machine.
  • The process of capsule polishing & sorting needs no operator.
  • Empty capsules are separated automatically once loaded and thus requires no manual operation of turning by hand.
  • It is a power saver equipment as the operation does not consumes extra power.
  • The machine does not requires filled capsules to be stored in order to get polished.
  • As the loading ring performs one complete rotation, the disengagement of Loader occurs automatically.
  • Semi Automatic capsule filling machine boasts of a PLC controlled digital to demonstrate the operations.
  • The auger of this filling machine comes with four speed range so that different type of powders & pellets can be filled.
  • The drug hopper has an improvised design which allows for lesser time consumption when the powders are dismantled and unloaded.
  • Presence of Auto-drug hopper in-feed mechanism calls for an advancement in the productivity as the variation in weight is considerably abridged.
  • The loader of the machine is automatically declutched as soon as the loading rings get filled. This minimizes the need for attention of the worker to achieve the target of maximizing the output.
  • Dosage accuracy is achieved in the machine as the table has Infinitely variable filling speed.
  • Any variation in weight is controlled with the help of automatically drug hopper in-feed mechanism. It also manages the workload of operator to improve the output yield.
  • The machine due to the ability of augur to operate at four speeds can handle different variants of powder ranging from hygroscopic to free-flowing ones.
  • A quick and safer operation of closing and ejection is achieved with the help of Automatic Capsule Closing System.
  • The Automation of Loading Station has solid-state control circuitry to ensure that loading table stops operating as one cycle of 60 strokes comes to an end. This thus removes the requirement of a worker to put an eye to the occurring operation.
  • The semi automatic capsule filling machine boasts of a groundbreaking feature of automatic filling station that eradicates the requirement of a worker to regularly monitor the operation. Drug hopper has a motorized swing-in and swing-back motion that eliminates fatigue in operator.
  • Pneumatic closing station makes use of an electric sensor to operate on the pneumatic cylinder in order to simplify the process of closing.
  • The filling machine makes sure that the capsules after getting filled are closed vertically in order to prevent powders from getting spilled and hence lower the rejection rate of the entire process. While filling the pellets, this procedure proves to be beneficial and is obtained by allowing for two speeds of auger and nine variable speed of the filling table.
  • Modular type hopper eases the process of dismantling and makes it quicker that is done while cleaning it. It helps in lessening the change-over time between the batches.
  • With ring loading station, the filled capsule output capacity experiences a substantial increase. It also allows for upgradation of the currently installed SA-9 to augment the production rate.
  • The ejection chute accommodates a large De-dusting screen that aids in the powder separation adhering to the already filled capsules.
