• Single Loader Semi Automatic Capsule Filling Machine


Single loader semi automatic capsule filling machine is perfectly apt for accurate filling and manufacturing of pharmaceutical capsule filling purposes. This machine offers a higher and better degree of automation as compared to its manual counterpart. If you are looking for a machine that fills capsule of varied sizes with granules, powders and pellets, this semi-auto capsule filling equipment has got to be your obvious pick.

Compliant with GMP standards, our semi-automatic capsule filler is fabricated with top-notch stainless steel and capable of production outputs as high as 25,000 to 45,000 per hour. The filling table of the machine is well-capable of achieving high dose accuracy. Courtesy the variable speed system it is equipped with. The drug hopper of this machine features an in-feed mechanism that eradicates any possibility of weight variation.

Salient Features of Semi Automatic Capsule Filler

  • Two models with output up to 35000 capsules per hour.
  • Loader gets disengaged automatically after one complete rotation of loading ring.
  • Programmable Logic Control (PLC) & display of all operations.
  • Augur with four speeds to fill different type of powder & pellets.
  • Modified design of drug hopper reduces time for dismantling and unloading powder.
  • Auto-drug hopper in-feed mechanisms reduce weight variations & improve productivity.
  • All the drive elements and the cabling at the right side separate panel.
  • Crevice free smooth stainless steel pharmaceutical grades.
  • Modified design of drug hopper reduces time for dismantling & unloading of powder.
  • Loader station which accepts too less change over time of different capsule size change parts.
  • Filling station which accepts too less change over time of powder to pellets.

Working Principle of Semi-Automatic Capsule Filling Machine

Semi-auto capsule filling equipment’s working principle is not complex at all. Capsules of all sizes varying from 00 to 5 are sent to the hopper. You will also find a corkscrew driven hopper that ensures constant and equal filling in each capsule. Capsule sorting is also efficiently carried out by the machine as it uses a vacuum sucker for the task. Once the capsules are sorted loading rings are pulled apart and that works only on the bottom section. The bottom section is stationary as the filling process takes place. Loading rings are placed back together as they were and once the rings are aligned the guards are closed. With the help of the dust extractor unit, the any dust particles on capsules are dusted off by using vacuum.

Capsule Loading Process

Turn the knob at manual mode of loader and press the yellow push button to ensure the all functions are smooth running. Load the desired empty capsules in the capsule hopper and pull out the capsule releasing pin. Turn the knob at auto mode of loader and press the green push button to start the loader. Lets fullfill the magazine slots with the capsules. Press the red push button to stop the loader. Insert the loading ring and turn it clockwise till it buts against the driving pawl. Switch on the loader motor by green push button. Ensuring that the clutch lever at the left hand side of the loading ring is in disengaging position. Engage the clutch lever and set the loader in motion till all the magazine slots are filled with capsules. See the loader counter and ensure that the displays 00, if not, reset the counter by pressing the yellow push button on the right hand side of the panel. Push in – capsule release stopper, capsules will start to be loaded into the loading ring. When the ring has completed one full revolution and the counter has indicated 60 the loader will disengage & stop automatically. After the loader has stopped, ring will rotate two round in the anticlockwise direction to ensure complete separation of cap and body of the Capsules. Remove the empty capsules filled loading ring from the loading station.

Powder Filling Process

Turn the knob at auto mode of powder filling. Place empty capsules filled loading ring on filling table & remove the top half of the loading ring (cap-plate) and place it at the left side stand, turn the body plate till it buts against the driving pin. Press the green push button of the powder filling to start the filling operation. Drug hopper comes over the loading ring and start Auger drive to fill powder. After complete the one rotation of filling table it stops automatically and drug hopper goes to back it first position. Place the top half of the loading ring (cap-plate) on bottom half of loading plate (body plate)

Capsule Locking Process

Turn the knob at auto mode of capsule locking. Place the filled capsule loading ring on the locating table of the locking unit. Press yellow push button one time to start the closing operating. After pressing the yellow push button it will goes inside & capsule’s cap & body will get joining, a movement comes out all capsule will ejecting automatically.

Exclusive Features of Semi Automatic Capsule Filling 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.
