GKF capsule filling machine

23.05.2015 Bosch Packaging Technology launches the capsule filling machine GKF 2600. This high-performance machine doses powders, pellet, tablets and liquids, as well as combinations precisely and reliably.


Facts for Decision Makers:

  • up to 156,000 capsules/h
  • user-friendly handling
  • fast adaptations

An output of up to 2,600 capsules per minute can be achieved. The machine is equipped with filling technologies for different products, an optimized drive concept, enhanced sensor technology for process control, as well as a demand-oriented containment concept. Due to its extended machine platform and accessibility, the capsule filling machine can be adapted to fill different products in a very short time. Thanks to these characteristics, add-on modules can also be integrated quickly and easily. With its standard functions, the system fulfills the industry requirements regarding precise and reliable capsule filling. This includes, for instance, an automatic anti troubleshooting (ASB) function, as well as user-friendly handling with improved accessibility of the filling stations. The optimized containment with more tightly sealed doors further ensures that the highest hygiene standards are maintained during production. Apart from the standard functions, numerous options are available, such as the capsule checkweigher KKE 2600 with enhanced product control. Additionally, the machine can be upgraded with a feedback loop, which automatically regulates overfilling and underfilling of capsules via tendency control of the KKE. An inspection unit can further be integrated into the capsule filling machine. It conducts weight and quality inspections with x-ray technology and an x-ray sensor. The micro-dosing wheel of the GKF 2600 precisely processes products in a filling range of two to 30 mg. Depending on customer requirements and product characteristics, the capsule filling machine can be upgraded for different containment requirements.
