Harro Höfliger singled out its Modu-C capsule filling and closing machine for Packaging Automation coverage as an example of modularity that differentiates it from its competitors.

Ideal for the testing of active ingredients, the Modu C allows plug-and-play installation of self-contained ELAU servo-driven dosing units on wheels around the central turret for various powders, liquids and solids in a matter of minutes. Each module includes its own servos, with quick-disconnects for the servos, pneumatics and lift system.

The Modu C can handle capsules from 00 to 5 and AA to E at rates from 150 to 400 capsules per minute. Modular checkweighing systems are easily added.

The first station is the empty capsule infeed and magazine, which orients and separates capsule bodies and caps. The next station performs a presence check for the capsule components and accept or reject to a vacuum system. Then come the interchangeable filling stations, followed by capsule closing, accept/reject, and an intensified segment cleaning station.

The filling modules include a model for microquantities (0.8 to 5.0 mg). A high speed capsule filler is used for OTC, vitamins and standard pharma products. A liquid filler with a heating circuit is used for thixotropic, hot melting and even oily liquids.
