To keep up with the demands of the modern pharmaceutical industry, the GKF 702 capsule filling machine has been designed to produce small batches right in the laboratory, fully simulating all production parameters. The machine produces small batches for R&D and clinical purposes under realistic production conditions. Small product batches between 100 and 300 milliliters give higher powder yields. This is accomplished by a filling station specially designed for laboratory use, known as “Mini-Bowl”. It is suitable especially for expensive and limited powder volumes during the development phase. A “slide-gate” system from the GKF 1400/2500 series provides significantly higher batch yields and the option of filling free-flowing granulates or pellets via the powder station. The machine is essentially “future-proof”: Its modular design offers the possibility to re-tool the machine for any future filling needs and any new developments from the company will be compatible with this machine type. Furthermore, the user-friendliness, ergonomics and accessibility of the previous model have been transferred and improved for this model. Most format parts from earlier models can also be used on this model. The new design includes an industrial PC (IPC) which is 21 CFR part 11 compliant and features a 17-inch touchscreen. Various interfaces such as LAN, USB and a DVD burner increase the accessibility of batch documentation.
