A process and apparatus for the gelatin coating of medicaments including a conveyer system (100) to advance pallets (200) through a loading station (10), dipping station (20), dryer station (34), reorientation station (50) and unloading station (70). Medicaments to be coated are loaded into a pallet (200) at the loading station (10) and advanced to a first dipping station (20) where a vacuum is applied to secure the medicaments to the pallet. The pallet is inverted and a first portion of each of the medicaments is dipped into a coating. The pallet is then returned to its upright position, the vacuum removed, and the coating dried. The medicaments are then transferred from the first pallet (200) to a second pallet (102) by a reorientation mechanism (59) so a second portion of the medicaments are coated in a second dipping station (60).; The medicaments are advanced through the dryer station (34) and then ejected from the second pallet into a container (70).
