"...capsule orientation occurs because the internal width of the gauged groove of the drum is larger than the diameter of the body, but smaller than the diameter of the lid. Therefore the blade push makes the capsules rotate by 90 degrees and orients only its body outward, pivoting upon its lid. The beaks of the feeding tubes go down again completing the rotation of the capsules..."
"...as the capsules are oriented with their bodies downward, suction keeps them in position as the static pins insure that each capsule is gently moved downward. Once the beaks complete their descent, the suction stops and the capsules are then released to fall into the lower housings of the drum protected by the beaks. Vacuum will hold each capsule in position as the beaks begin their upward travel to complete the cycle..."
