Manufacturing - Encapsulation

Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals facility is equipped with (18) high-speed automatic and (5) semi-automatic encapsulating machines with capabilities to produce two-piece hard shell gelatin, liquid capsules, and vegetarian capsules in sizes including 0, 00, and 1-4 sizes. The fully automatic machines can produce at a high rate of production per hour to offer a high yield capacity per shift. Our semi-automatic encapsulating machines offer additional flexibility to manufacture large or small batch sizes based on the product needs of our customers.

*Hi-tech has multiple sets of change parts for 00,0,1,2,3,and size 4 capsules. This enables Hi-tech to knock most jobs out in less than a week. Each encapsulor also has its own capsule polisher so the capsules come out real shiny. Most manufacturers do not bother to polish the capsules after they run them, which leave them dusty and will ultimately cause the bottle to show dust as the capsule rub against the bottle. We also have 5 Mocon Vericap 2500 capsule check weighers that allows us to set our tolerances for example +/- 3% and if the capsule did not meet the correct fill weight it will reject the capsule at 2500 capsules per minute. Very few nutritional companies buys these machines as they are really expensive, but for GMP compliance- Hi-Tech felt we needed exact precision on capsules as they fluctuate more than tablets during a run.
