Optimizing Capsule Filling; Preventing hard capsule defects

The challenges manufacturers are faced with today are at an all-time high. With increased competition, manufacturers are forced to minimize costs while maintaining and even increasing quality. Increased regulatory conditions and shorter throughput time are compounding factors.

To meet these demands, it is crucial for companies to provide a higher level of training and education to match the competitive landscape. The webinar Preventing Defects in Two-Piece Hard Shell Capsules will provide an in-depth review of the capsule filling process, introduce the common defect types along with root causes and will teach the methods which will lead to defect prevention and elimination of waste.
