How Does the Semi-Automatic Capsule Filling Machine Work?

Empty capsules are placed into the filling machine’s hopper. Load powder into a separate hopper. The corkscrew-driven hopper fills capsules consistently. Then, the operator uses the vacuum sucker to fill the loading rings with capsules. Loading Rings come in sizes 00 to 5. The suction separates the capsules.

After separating the capsules, the loading rings are pushed apart to remove the bottom. The bottom component goes into the filling machine. The operator may start filling once the loading rings are in position. This allows the filler to glide onto the capsules and spin them. The corkscrew presses powder into capsules. This guarantees each capsule’s size and weight. The two loading rings are then put in the capsule filler’s sealing section. Once synchronized, the operator shuts the guard and seals the capsules using air pressure. The loading ring releases the capsules.

This machine can polish capsules once they’re made. The capsule polisher includes corkscrew brush bristles and a dust extractor. The dust extractor vacuum-cleans capsules for finishing.

What are the design specifications of a semi-automatic capsule filling machine?

Automatic Loading: Solid-state control circuitry automatically stops the loading table after 50 strokes, removing operator attention.

  • Automatic Filling:  Automated swing-in and swing-back lower operator strain.
  • Pneumatic Closing: This lessens work by using an electronic sensor to activate the closing pneumatic cylinder.
  • Vertical Closing: Vertical filling capsules eliminate rejects and powder spills. Essential for pellet filling. Two auger speeds and nine filling table speeds do this.
  • Adaptable Hopper: Allows quick cleaning disassembly. Reduce batch changeover times.
  • Capsule Output: Ring loading increases capacity. This lets current installations generate more production.
  • De-dusting Display: Ejection chute separates capsule powder easily.

What is the structure of a Semi-Automatic Capsule Filler?

The semi-automatic capsule filler is structured practically and smartly for maximum efficiency. Starting with the electrical unit, PLC control system, filling system, loading system, cap and body tray, pneumatic system, down to the filling table, and capsule closing system; All function harmoniously.

  1. Electrical Unit: delivers adequate power for most machine operations.
  2. PLC Control System: This is where you enter the filler’s filling parameters.
  3. Filling System: This component regulates the machine’s capsule-filling speed.
  4. Loading System: It automatically positions filling material and empty capsules before filling.
  5. Caps and Body Tray: This two-part tray mechanically separates caps from capsule bodies.
  6. Pneumatic System: Air compression drives pump filling material into empty capsules.
  7. Filling Table: The dynamic variable filling table speed improves dosage accuracy.
  8. Capsule Closing: The capsule’s bottom is protected by U-shaped locking pins.

When buying a Semi-Automatic Capsule Filling Machine, what should you look for?

Model and Brand

Certainly, get a machine that does its functions competently. Because of this, you must choose a capsule filler from a reputable company. This is likely to be effective for a longer time. Even though this may initially cost more, you won’t have to worry about failures and costly repairs, which can be quite stressful and expensive.

Production Capacity 

When you buy a capsule filling machine, you probably have in mind the production capacity you want to achieve. This should affect your decision about which equipment to buy. The most reliable machine for filling capsules for medium output is a semi-automatic device.


Have a filler with an easy-to-use user interface. Getting the desired results depends on how easy the interface is to use. This is because the semi-automatic filling procedure requires a human operator. You know how inconvenient it is when the user interface is continuously changing and how it might reduce productivity.

Quality Compliance 

Quality standards are necessary because they help you figure out how good a machine is before you buy it. They are also signs of how safe it is. There are different quality standards depending on where you live and where the machine was made. ISO, cGMP, RoHS, and C.E. are some standards to watch out for.

Technical Specification

The quality of semi-automatic fillers varies. This means that their speed and quality of work are different. Before you buy a capsule encapsulation machine, you should talk to a technician about how it works. This will help you determine what functions are needed for production to go smoothly.

Technological Advancement 

Semi-automatic capsule fillers have seen significant technical advances. Your machine should satisfy production demands. The one you will buy also depends on the automation levels. Middle-level manufacturing is well handled by semi-automatic machinery. While some machines can make 700 capsules per hour, others can simultaneously make up to 5,000 capsules. Check the number of capsules your machine can make in an hour if you wish to raise output to a larger volume.

Auxiliary Equipment Integration 

Additional equipment is necessary for complete manufacturing. The equipment you purchase must be compatible with other equipment, such as labeling and packaging machines. This also includes the capsule types that the machine can fill. The two most frequent capsules are soft gelatin capsules and hard gelatin capsules. You will choose which of these capsules to fill. This will then decide which machine is the most effective to purchase. By doing so, you will be able to prevent unexpected production challenges in the future.

Reliable Manufacturer

Consider the manufacturer when buying a filling machine. This includes examining the manufacturer’s filling machine experience, offered machine models, and reputation. With these factors, you will have one that meets your expectations.

How does it prevent powder wastage?

Yes. It has a system that especially fills capsules with products. The cover ensures that the filling funnels are filled precisely to the right amount. Powder waste can also be controlled by changing the speed.

What are the benefits of having variable speed control?
  • Ease of operation.
  • The powder material is fed into the machine in a controlled manner using a dependable and precise mechanism.
  • It’s an excellent tool for making sure hygiene standards are fulfilled.
  • An effective technique for loading granular and powdered substances.
How do you make sure the capsules are of excellent quality?

Capsules are quality-tested by comparing the output to the original requirements. These criteria include the capsule’s form and content.

What type of material is a semi-automatic capsule filler made of?

The majority of semi-automatic capsule fillers are made of stainless steel. This is a great choice because it will last for a long time. It can also stand up to any corrosion caused by the substances inside the capsule. It has a very low contamination rate, so it’s safer and cleaner for us.
