Capsule appearance inspection machines


The appearance of the capsule is inspected by direct image capture with the camera, controlling its orientation and rotating the capsule during intermittent transfer.

Capsule appearance inspection machines: CES Series


Compact size, can be connected directly to a capsule filling machine.

The small installation footprint allows direct connection to a filling machine in a dedicated filling room, and the filling machine can be controlled in accordance with the defect rate detected.

Inspection is fast and highly accurate.

The multi-row rotary rectification system is used to control the direction and stop the rotation of capsules for inspection at a throughput of 155,000 capsules per hour, resulting in high inspection accuracy with no blind spots.

Unattended, long-term operation is possible.

The capsule rectification and conveyance mechanism, which has a proven record in filling and sealing machines, provides gentle capsule feeding and stable inspection accuracy, making unattended operation possible.
