Formpak's Automatic Capsule Filling Machine AF-90T for Tamping, Dosating or Volumetric Filling

December 29, 2020


Functional Description:

The AF-90T is a high capacity fully automatic capsule filling machine that can fill a large variety of powder formulation into hard gelatine capsules. The machine is formulation friendly and it uses a tamping process to form a slug which is inserted into the empty capsule. Pellet filling device is available as an optional attachment.

Capsules are fed into the hopper and picked up in the lading station by its reciprocation motion. After rectification the capsules are separated by vacuum so that the bodies go into the lower segment and the caps remain in the upper segment of the bushes.

The powder is loaded into the hopper and transferred to the powder tub by a stirrer. The tamping device gradually forms a slug by a series of 5 tampings in the dosing disc. The 6'th stroke of the tamping device ejects the slug into the body of the capsule.

The capsules are closed and locked by means of closing pins. The locked length of the capsules can be adjusted by a fine screw arrangement.An optional pellet filling system is available that works on the volumetric system . The unique design ensures no damage is caused to the pellets during the filling process.
