Why capsule sealing? 

Capsule sealing with banding technology ensures the highest product quality and prevents liquid-filled capsules from leakage. Banding also provides an additional measure for anti-counterfeiting of capsules filled with powder or other components. Sealing provides an enhanced safety measure to meet regulatory requirements. Our Syntegon GKB 2100 banding machine can handle both hard gelatine and HPMC (plant-based) capsules.


The Syntegon GKB 2100 banding machine

The new GKB 2100 features a particularly robust and flexible process, combined with the highest yield and maximum process stability. The focus is on user-friendliness, as well as very good accessibility for cleaning and easy format part changeovers. Our banding machine achieves an output of up to 125,000 capsules per hour.
