Automatic capsule filling machine ACFT - 40 has been designed to fill hard gelatin capsules with a variety of powders, pellets and tablets. The machine is operator friendly, compact in design and runs on the tamping principle. The machine can fill capsules from size '00' to '5'.

Working Sequence:
  • Empty gelatin capsules fed from hopper is oriented and gets loaded into cap / body segments & vacuum
  • separation takes place
  • Cap and body segments get separated. . Pellet filling takes place when attachment is fixed for pellet
  • Powder filling by tamping is done in this station
  • Ejection of unopened capsules takes place by the upward stroking rods
  • Closing of capsules
  • Filled capsules are ejected
  • Segment cleaning is done with vacuum and compressed air
Salient features:
  • Completely automatic process
  • cGMP model complying to 21CFR Part 11

Capsule Loading Station:

Empty capsules loaded in the hopper get oriented and loaded. Capsule separation takes place by vacuum. The body of the capsule gets into the bottom segment and the cap gets into the top segment.

Powder Filling Station:

The powder loaded in the powder hopper moves to the powder drum.Tamping of powder into the holes of the filling disc is performed intermittently at five successive stations. Each tamping gradually increases the powder weight and in sixth station the slug of powder is ejected into the capsule. Accurate dosage is ensured by this process and a wide range of formulations can be filled.

Capsule Closing & Ejection Station:

The closing pins lock the capsules and lock length is adjusted by adjusting the tie rod. Closed capsules are then ejected by ejecting pins through outlet chute.
