Bosch introduces new micro-dosing system for capsule filling

Expertise Series

Bosch unveiled the new drum-style micro-dosing system for two-piece capsule filling at Interpack 2011 in Düsseldorf, Germany. Since then, we have done extensive Quality by Design testing of our system and sold several machines with this filling system.

Bosch developed and patented a new adjustable dosing-drum that allows an operator to adjust the fill volume of the bores with the simple turn of a screw. This allows for great flexibility in product development and provides a system that can accommodate a large range of fill weights and product densities with minimal tooling.

This article was a collaboration between Bosch engineers and our in-house pharmacist and the University of Albstadt-Sigmaringen in Germany. Read the article.
