Our expertise

Mini tablet dosing

The mini tablet station allows non-destructive and precise filling of mini tablets into hard capsules. For each capsule, dosing is possible for up to four different tablets in freely adjustable quantities. And this is done almost format-free, gentle on the product and in highest quality.

Drum with AMV

A sensor is used to achieve highly-precise filling of minimum powder quantities combined with a 100% complete inspection. The capacitive measurement using the AMV-Sensor (Advanced Mass Verification) allows an accurate in-process inspection, even at maximum machine speeds.

Modular dosing trolley system

Dosing trolleys allow a fast and easy change of the dosing systems. Whether powder, liquid or solid fill media: The matching trolley is easily integrated into the basic machine. This reduces set-up and cleaning times to a minimum and makes capsule filling even more flexible.
