Pharmaceutical X-Ray technology can be used for many applications, but Bosch has harnessed the power of the x-ray and used it to accurately determine capsule fill weight and to inspect capsules for defects.

This revolutionary x-ray inspection technology provides an unparalleled level of quality data that ensures that each and every capsule you produce is evaluated against your quality standards.

Enter the KKX 3900 Universal Capsule Inspection System. This checkweighing solution from Bosch Packaging Technology  is perhaps the most innovative option on the market. The KKX 3900 is fitted with an X-ray camera that allows the machine to weigh capsules and even inspect them for foreign particles.

“What we’re doing is creating an X-ray image of a block of capsules,” says business development manager Thomas Mauritzen. “Our unit can detect anything that’s a different density from the product filled in the capsule, such as a piece of wood or plastic that might come off a pallet. These things can happen, and when they do, you have a big issue.”

The KKX 3900 can be used as a standalone unit or an in-line accessory capable of running in tandem with any capsule filler on the market. Your alternative for foreign-particle inspection would be purchasing individual units for each level of detection (e.g., a metal detector to detect only metal). That’s added cost and floor space. The KKX 3900 can inspect up to 220,000 capsules per hour. Reduced-speed models will be available soon.

Along with checking the fill weight of every capsule with high accuracy, the KKX 3900 system inspects for correct capsule closure, foreign particles (metal, wood, plastic, glass, etc), and can even determine if a capsule is dented or damaged.

Never before have all of these features been available in one, small-footprint package, let alone at speeds of up to 220,000 capsules per hour!

The system is available as a stand-alone unit (approximately the size of a standard KKE gravimetric capsule checkweigher) that can be placed in-line with any capsule filler or it can be integrated into the capsule discharge of the Bosch containment capsule filler (no additional floor space required for the KKX 3900 unit).
