A capsule filling machine is a filling machine used to fill capsules with powders, granules or liquids containing pharmaceutical ingredients.
The capsules are usually made from a soft or hard gelatine shell or HPMC (Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose, which is a vegetarian alternative) that is designed to dissolve once digested.
A capsule filling machine can be fully automated, semi-automated or manual depending on the specifications needed. A fully automated capsule filling machine has hoppers for both the empty capsules as well as the powder, granules and liquids. The machine then carefully separates each capsule before filling and closing the two halves together. Finalwe provides several capsule filling technologies, including semi-automated and fully-automated systems and providing 100% weight check of filled capsules.
