The MG America booth (the U.S. subsidiary of Italy-based MG2) featured a number of machines, including its brand new patented EXTRUDOR™ dosing unit which allows users to modify the dosed powder quantity through simple and rapid adjustments without changing the dosing disc.
The system is designed to offer flexibility, accuracy and uniformity, increasing the dosing precision and reducing powder dispersion, resulting in shorter cleaning times and lower maintenance costs. At the show, the unit was installed on MG2’s intermittent-motion capsule filler model AlternA70N, which can reach speeds up to 70,000 capsules/hr. The AlternA70N can be equipped with a powder or pellet dosing unit, or a combination and handles capsule sizes from 00 to 5, including elongated and tamper-proof capsules.
