Setting a New Benchmark for Ease of Operation

The NCF-45 is built for high reliability, safety, smooth operation, and a focus on reduced product loss. This operator-driven machine is designed specifically for medium-scale production lines. The NCF-45 is capable of producing up to 45,000 capsules per hour at 125 RPM—an average of 12 capsules per second!

Whether you’re just getting into the business or looking to automate your current process, the NCF-45 machine is everything you need and more!  The NCF-45 uses a tamper dosing style filling station. Natoli’s precision engineered machine uses a time-tested tamper dosing method to ensure consistent results.
