MG America: Tablet checkweigher

MG America’s MG2 SELEKTA high-speed checkweigher and sorting machine for the production of tablets can check up to 500,000 units/hr. and handles a wide variety of product shapes and sizes, and delivers 100% weight verification, according to the company.

The SELEKTRA is designed for seamless integration with existing tableting equipment to allow continuous process manufacturing.  Its unique design utilizes MG2's capsule filling technology by incorporating the features of the company’s Multi-NETT weight control system.  Multi-NETT is able to monitor and control net weight in low-dose applications (5-25mg).  The system also can singularly monitor and control the net weight of multiple components dosed into a capsule, and rejects any capsule that exceeds preset weight tolerances.

The machine selects conforming and nonconforming units through a fail-safe system employing a set of sensors located at critical points throughout the testing process.  SELEKTA also is easy to use and maintain; size changeover is quickly performed by replacing two sets of parts, which can be easily disassembled.

SELEKTA can be directly connected downstream from primary production equipment, upstream of blister lines, or used as a standalone unit with automatic or manual load (for smaller batches).  In addition, two special versions of SELEKTA are available for integration into packaging lines where tablets are placed into bottles; for these operations, the two offerings are the SELEKTA/CW, which performs product counting as well as weighing, and the SELEKTA/C, whose sole function is counting.
