Capsule filling machine

Syntegon capsule filling solutions

Our capsule filling machine series provide best conditions for highest pharmaceutical standards – from R&D and pilot scale to high production volumes. Whether you need to fill powders, (mini-) tablets, pellets, granules, liquids, or different combinations into hard shell capsules (HPMC or gelatin), we offer you the appropriate process technology for the production of both pharmaceutical and health and nutrition products. We also provide a containment concept for several machine platforms for the production of potent APIs up to OEB 4 or OEB 5, which ensure the highest operator protection.

Filling applications


Dosing station with optimized slide-gate technology for the filling of powders, granules, and pellets.


The pellet station is a gentle, precise, and compact option for the volumetric dosing of pellets with different characteristics.

(Micro-) tablets

The tablet station doses single and multiple tablets into capsules gently and precisely – from big oblong to micro-tablets.

Vacuum-wheel dosing

Vacuum-wheel dosing is especially suited for dry powder inhalation (DPI) and active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) dosing with a high accuracy for small quantities.


The liquid station enables the precise volumetric dosing of hydrophilic to thixotropic liquids. It can also heat liquids for optimum viscosity during the filling process.


The GKF series can fill a wide array of product combinations thanks to its modular assembly. Various successful projects underline our expertise.
