Our expertise


We offer a variety of filling technologies for micro-dosing of inhalation products, for example for dry powder inhalers (DPI). These systems allow a reliable dosing of free-flowing and cohesive powders even in minimum quantities of less than 1 mg.

In-line inspection systems

Using X-ray technology and AMV sensors (Advanced Mass Verification) you can rely on a 100 percent fill quantity control of active ingredient substances. Camera systems ensure reliable monitoring of production processes.
