Semi Automatic Capsule Filler

Semi Automatic Capsule Filler

Semi-Automatic Capsule Filler (semi-automatic capsule filling machine) including small capsule filler a cGMP machine designed to fill powder, pellet and granules in capsules. We are having three different models ASCF 25, ASCF 35 and ASCF 45 which provide production output up to 25k, 35k and 45k capsules per hour respectively. Product contact parts are build with stainless steel 316 or food grade materials and all covering are made from SS 304 sheet.

Machine operating mechanism is done through two parts loading rings. Empty capsules are loaded onto this ring by inbuilt capsule loader. Separation station separates capsule body and cap in separate rings. Capsule body ring putted below powder feeding station where powder is filled into capsules. Three different types of augers provided to operate different characteristics of powders. After powder feeding both the loading rings joint together and putted to locking station for capsule locking. Pin plate assembly performs capsule locking operation and further filled capsules get discharged onto collection hopper.

Adinath range of capsule filling machines includes small semi-automatic capsule filling machine as well as production scale semi-automatic capsule filling machine.

Design Features of Semi-Automatic Capsule Filler Machine

  • Automation of Loading Station – This eliminates the need for continuous operator attention as solid-state control circuitry provides automatic stoppage of the loading table after completion of one cycle, each of 50 strokes.

  • Automation of Filling Station – This, again, is a revolutionary feature that eliminates the need for continuous operator attention. Motorized swing-in and swing-back of the drug hopper after one filling cycle results in reduced operator fatigue.

  • Pneumatic Closing Station – This utilizes an electronic sensor which activates a pneumatic cylinder to carry out the closing operation resulting in ease of operation and reduced operator fatigue.

  • Vertical Closing – Vertical closing of filled capsules reduces reject rates and powder spillage. This is critical for pellet filling. This is achieved by having two speeds for auger and nine speeds for filling table operation.

  • Modular type Hopper provides easy and fast dismantling for cleaning. Change-over times between batches are reduced.

  • Filled Capsule Output Capacity can be increased using our ring loading station. This allows existing installations to be upgraded for extra production.

  • Large De-dusting Screen on the ejection chute provides for easy separation of powder adhering to filled capsules.

Working Principle
of Semi-Automatic Capsule Filler Machine

Empty capsules of suitable size are loaded in capsule hopper. Powder then loaded into a separate hopper. This is a corkscrew driven hopper, which allows a constant fill throughout each capsule. The operator then uses the vacuum sucker to individually sort out and fill the capsules into the loading rings. Loading Rings can be made from 00 to 5 sizes as per requirements. The operator then uses the vacuum to separate the capsules.

Once the capsules are separated, the loading rings are pulled apart to release just the bottom section. This bottom section is then placed into the filling part of the machine. Once the loading rings has been placed into this section of the machine, the operator can switch on the filling. This causes the filler to slide across onto the capsules, and the capsules to rotate beneath it. The corkscrew then evenly forces the powder down into the capsules. This ensures that each capsule is of the same size and weight. The two loading rings are then placed back together and placed into the sealing section of the capsule filling machine. Once they are aligned, the operator closes the guard and uses air pressure to seal the capsules. The capsules are then released from the loading ring.

Once the capsules have been produced, there is also a capsule polishing option for this machine. The capsule polishing has a set of corkscrew brush bristles inside and uses a dust extractor unit connect with this capsule polishing machine. This dust extractor system de-dust the capsules by the vacuum, to leave them with a high-quality and professional finish.
