All movements are servo-controlled, meaning changes in filling curves or quantities can be controlled from the control panel and saved as dispensing formulas for future runs. 

After first being cleaned with ionized air and suctioning to remove any potential particles, cups are sterilized with peroxide and dried with sterile air. The machine has three different dosing devices, providing maximum product flexibility.  All dosing equipment is designed for CIP/SIP treatment.

Pre-punched cover plates – also sterilized with peroxide – are used to seal cups. For uninterrupted production, the foil lid stations are equipped with automated changeover devices.  The adjustable sealing heads are designed to reliably seal 16 cups/cycle.  A ring-shaped cylinder heater warms the sealing heads, which are controlled and monitored using special software.  Foil seal tightness is examined before cups are removed by an integrated packer that sets them in four stacks at a time.
