Bosch Packaging introduces GKF 702 capsule filling machine

Bosch Packaging Technology presents the GKF 702 capsule filling machine, which will replace the previous GKF 701 model. “The GKF 702 will continue the success of the previous model. Its performance was upgraded and improved during the re-development process,” explained product manager Melanie Beck. With the GKF 702, customers can expect the same flexibility and user-friendliness that was a mainstay of the GKF 701 for the past eight years.

To keep up with the demands of the modern pharmaceutical industry, the GKF 702 has been designed to produce small batches right in the laboratory. The production parameters required later during production, such as the machine speed, can be fully simulated. “Therefore, the machine is able to produce small batches for Research and Development (R&D) or clinical purposes under realistic production conditions,” Melanie Beck pointed out.

For laboratory use a specially designed filling station, known as the “Mini-Bowl” was developed for small product batches between 100 and 300 milliliters, which gives higher powder yields. This is especially suitable for expensive and limited powder volumes during the development phase, providing a very economic filling solution. A “slide-gate” system, from the GKF 1400/2500 series, is also available, providing significantly higher batch yields and the option of filling free-flowing granulates, or pellets, via the powder station.

The GKF 702 is a “future-proof” machine. Its modular design offers the possibility to re-tool the machine for any future filling needs and any new developments from Bosch will be compatible with this machine type. As an example, the micro-dosing station on the GKF 2500 will soon also be available for the GKF 702. Furthermore, the user-friendliness, ergonomics, and the accessibility of the previous GKF 701 machine have been transferred and improved upon in the GKF 702. Most format parts from the GKF 700 and GKF 701, with the exception of the dosing plate in combination with the “slide-gate” system, can also be used on the GKF 702. The new design includes an Industrial PC (IPC) which is 21 CFR part 11 compliant and features a 17" touchscreen. Various interfaces such as LAN, USB and a DVD burner, make batch documentation easier to access.

The Bosch division Packaging Technology, is one of the leading suppliers in the field of packaging technology. It develops and produces complete systems in packaging and process technology for the pharmaceutical, confectionery and food industries.
