Capsule banding machine - Hermetica
Capsule banding machine - Hermetica

The Hermetica is a capsule banding machine for tamper evident sealing of capsules filled with liquids, but also with powders or other products. The banding is achieved through the application of a ring of liquid gelatine on the external surface of the capsule.

- The machine balcony structure, the position of the capsule feeding unit and the exit chute allow good accessibility and easy operations.
- The two sealing pans are separated and independently controlled. A double gelatine band is applied by the two rollers with independent speed regulation, so that any air bubble of unevenness in the first band is overcome by the second application.
- A pre-drying unit guarantees fast fixing of the gelatine band before the capsule is transferred in the drying box for final drying.
- Easy size changeover: both sealing and drying transport plates contain a double row of capsules, thus reducing the number of pieces to be changed and cleaned.
- A 100% checking system via a camera can be additionally fitted, to control and select each individual banded capsule.
- Possibility to adjust gelatine temperature and viscosity independently in each pan.
