The RDCF-9 is a user-friendly machine with advanced features. It provides a high degree of automation, which, coupled with sound manufacturing practices, results in higher levels of fill weight accuracy; formulation yields; maintenance-free operation; and operator ease and safety. Depending on size of capsules the output varies from 22,000 to 28,000 capsules per hour. To make it more user-friendly the RDCF-9 features an automated loading station, eliminating the need for continuous operator attention. The loading table stops automatically after the completion of each cycle - 60 strokes. The machine has an automated filling station. This revolutionary feature reduces operator fatigue by filling the drug hopper after each filling cycle. The machine uses an electronic sensor to activate a pneumatic cylinder to close the station. This makes the machine easier to use and reduces operator fatigue. The filled capsules close vertically. This reduces reject rates and minimizes powder spillage which helps reduce costs.
