Home » Pharmaceutical Equipment » Encapsulation

Encapsulation technology is used in the pharmaceutical sector to fill hard or soft capsule shells with various dosage forms. These capsules are then taken orally or used as suppositories. Most encapsulation machines make use of either the tamping or the dosator principle, depending on the formulation. These machines are built to ensure optimal production and a low rejection rate.

Our encapsulation equipment is manufactured by Technipharma, which has over 5 decades of experience with capsule technologies. They produce R&D scale, pilot scale and production scale encapsulation equipment as well as a range of related supporting equipment. The AF Series of automatic capsule filling machines is Technipharma flagship range. More than 1600 installations have been conducted worldwide for different types of capsule fillers covering powders, granules, pellets, tablets, capsule dosage forms and over 3,000 formulations. Liquid encapsulation models are available for liquid filing in hard shells. Containment models are also available for filling highly potent substances. For unique encapsulation needs, Customized Oral Dosage Encapsulation (CODE) is available.
