Fette Compacting has also been represented in the capsule filling machine segment since 2016. As for tablet production, the motto here is: “be efficient”. Efficiency is revealed in the form of unique production performance combined with extremely easy operation and minimized machine downtimes.

Duplex Concept

Double output! The Duplex Concept permits two comprehensive capsule filling processes on an unchanged base area, thereby reducing production costs per 1,000 capsules by up to 30 percent.

For swiftcleaningand changeover

One stand-alone feature of the FEC40 is its patented tamping pin station change. Like the pellet station available as an alternative, the tamping pin stations can be dismantled and cleaned outside the machine.

The result: much shorter changeover and cleaning times.

Human-Machine Interface
Intuitive operation makes things easier

The FEC40 is easy and convenient to operate thanks to the innovative Human-Machine Interface (HMI). User guidance is graphic and intuitive, providing users with a permanent and comprehensive overview of all relevant process and quality parameters.

Flexible set-up
Flexibility saves money

The FEC40 is the first capsule filling machine to be fully powered by servo and torque motors. This enables previously coupled process steps to be set independently, enabling significant reductions in terms of overall processing times – entirely without any compromises regarding quality. Furthermore, users can individually adapt the strokes of the tamping pin station and closing station during ongoing production. And no additional mechanical adjustments are required after changeover or cleaning with the result that the FEC40 is soon fully operational again.

The fillingprocess

The five steps of the capsule filling process are demonstrated in the video: feeding, separating, filling, closing and discharging the capsules.

Technical data

A high output and compact design make the FEC40 particularly efficient in operation.
