PACL-300 In Use

The PACL-300 simplifies and speeds up the process of getting empty capsules ready for filling. Here's how such a machine generally operates:

  1. Feeding the Capsules: Empty capsules are first introduced into the machine, typically by pouring them into a designated loading chamber or hopper.

  2. Orientation: The machine is designed to ensure that capsules are correctly oriented. Through a series of vibratory mechanisms or channels, capsules are arranged so that their larger body parts and smaller cap parts are separated into distinct paths. This ensures that the capsule's body is distinguishable from its cap.

  3. Positioning into Trays: Once oriented, the capsules are guided into a loading tray. The tray typically has multiple holes or cavities. Each cavity is sized to fit the body of an empty capsule snugly. The machine ensures each of these cavities is filled with a capsule body, ready for the filling process.

  4. Transfer to Capsule Filling Machine: Once the loader has filled the tray with the oriented capsules, the tray can be directly placed onto the PharmaCap, where powder will be loaded into the capsule bodies.
