MG America offers over-encapsulation capabilities—putting a tablet and a powdered drug inside a capsule—with its Planeta continuous-motion capsule filler.
Featuring a modular design that allows for different dosing units to be fitted at the same time, Planeta can fill powders (including low-dose applications), pellets (up to 4 different types in the same capsule), microtablets, tablets, liquids, or herbal products in either single or multiple doses and in various combinations. Speeds range from 6,000 to 100,000 capsules/hr, and no change parts are required for different tablet shapes and sizes. Filler also automatically rejects capsules with missing tablets and offers easy access for cleaning.
