Supra X

High Yield Softgel Encapsulation Machine

First introduced in 2007, the SUPRA X is the newest addition to our line of encapsulation machines. Recognizing the need for higher yield, we designed the SUPRA X to lead the industry's trend toward larger output machines. The SUPRA X features 10" die rolls combined with a variable machine speed of 2 - 6 RPM making it capable of producing over 100,000 capsules per hour. The SUPRA X incorporates the same advanced design features as our smaller models and maintains the same high standards of quality.
