Capsule filling equipment is both inexpensive and easy to use. The equipment itself is extremely user friendly and perfect for use in small supplement manufacturing businesses or for use in making your own personal supplements. There are many quality capsule filling equipment makers that specialize in dealing with individuals and small businesses.

To get started, the first thing you'll need is a supply of empty capsules. There is a remarkable variety in empty capsules for you to choose from. There are clear capsules, as well as colored capsules. Some are tasteless, others are flavored. There are gelatin capsules and vegetarian capsules too. Capsules come in many sizes from the very small to the very large.

Equipment to Fill Your Supplement Capsules

The next thing you'll need is the equipment that will actually fill the empty capsules for you. Capsule filling machines make filling capsules much more efficient and much less tedious. You simply set the empty capsules in the machine's tray, then pour the powdered supplement over the entire tray, filling each capsule. Once you replace the other half of the capsule, your supplement is ready to go.

Most capsule filling machines come with optional equipment, like tamping tools. While they are strictly optional, I do recommend utilizing tamping tools because it allows you to put more supplement into each capsule. Different equipment is available to meet different needs. Some machines can produce a few hundred pills an hour while others produce several thousand.
