Safe, gentle and flexible capsule dosing: the Bosch GKF capsule filling technology

For over 15 years, Wiewelhove has been successfully producing solid pharmaceutical products with the GKF technology from Bosch. The system runs in multiple-shift operation and is convincing thanks to its robust design and continuous maintenance. The GKF is a machine that truly keeps up with the times. Numerous upgrade options make sure the capsule filling machine is always state-of-the-art. For instance, it was recently complemented by a mechanical cleaning station to prevent sticky powders from getting stuck in the capsule carrier segments. This results in a consistently high product quality – for phyto pharmaceuticals, nutritional supplements and medical products alike.

The history of capsule filling machines from Bosch Packaging Technology

Since the 1950s, Bosch is among the pioneers in the development of filling machines for hard gelatin capsules. All common solid and liquid formulations can be filled on these machines. The integration of cutting-edge control and measurement technology ensures the highest efficiency and offers functionality for integrated process analyses. Sensors for net weight detection, as well as capsule checkweighers of the KKE series complement the GKF range. The filling stations meet all the requirements of a modern and resource-saving production. The patented slide-gate system reduces powder loss by up to 50 percent. Whether in the laboratory, for the production of clinical samples or in industrial production, the GKF accompanies a product from the first trials to the batch production in multiple-shift operation.
