The Syntegon GKF Capsylon 6005 capsule filling machine differs from its predecessors primarily in terms of output and product yield—serving the need for higher production capacities of manufacturing companies.
With 360,000 capsules filled per hr, the output has more than doubled compared to the GKF Capsylon 3005 (175,000 capsules/hr). Plus, the high-speed capsule filling machine has 48 instead of 21 segment bores in four instead of two rows.
Syntegon’s patented slide-gate provides additional support. The slide-gate’s precise movements reliably cover the segment bores from below during filling. This results in a higher product yield and lower dust impact with overall higher filling accuracy. At the same time, slide-gate technology offers manufacturers more flexibility by allowing the GKF Capsylon 6005 to process pellets or granules on the same dosing station.
A further optimization of the GKF Capsylon 6005 relates to format part changeover: The click system ensures significantly faster changeovers. No manual readjustment of the format parts is needed. Operators can learn the use of the intuitive system with minimal effort.
“We are seeing growing interest in products like vitamins, proteins, and other dietary supplements in the European and U.S. markets,” says Andreas Nuessle, product manager at Syntegon. “The GKF Capsylon 6005 combines a significantly higher output rate with the flexibility of the range to fill powders, pellets, granules, and even special products. This makes it suitable for a particularly wide range of applications.”
