ACG North America LLC has developed an Automatic Capsule Filler (ACG AF-90[T]). The machine is designed to fill a large variety of powder formulations into hard gelatin capsules. It also uses a tamping process that forms a slug and is inserted into the capsule. A few benefits of the machine are being GMP-compliant, having an easy-to-operate touch screen and an output of 90,000 capsules per hour.
