Encapsulators: Capsule Filling Machines

Encapsulators are mechanical devices that are often used in industry and medicine. They are also called capsule fillers, capsule filling machines, or encapsulation machines. These machines fill empty soft or hard gelatin capsules of different sizes with powders, granules, semi-solids, or liquids that contain active pharmaceutical ingredients or a mix of active pharmaceutical ingredients and excipients. Encapsulation is the process of putting things inside empty capsules.

The basics of how a capsule-filling machine works

All capsule-filling machines should work the same way, according to the following rules:

  1. Making things right (correcting the orientation of the harmful gelatin capsules).
  2. Taking the caps off of the capsule bodies
  3. The amount of fill material or formula (for filling the bodies)
  4. Putting caps and bodies together
  5. The filled capsules are thrown out.

Types of machines that fill capsules

There are different kinds of encapsulation machines, and these machines are chosen based on the following:

  1. The manufacturer’s needs and the type of capsule (hard or soft).
  2. The number of pills that will be made

Three types of encapsulators are used to put hard gelatin capsules together.

  1. Manual/hand-operated capsule filling machine.
  2. Semi-Automatic capsule filling machine.
  3. Automatic capsule filling machine.
