With its compact structure and a footprint of less than 1½ square meters, the unit is easy to access and extremely versatile. Equipped with eight stations, the technology is suitable for filling semi-solids such as ointments, creams, gels, and pastes. The products are filled into aluminum, laminate or polyethylene tubes, which are closed either mechanically by means of a series of folds or in a heat-sealing or hot air process. This robust machine has a maximum output of 60 tubes/min. and is intended for small-to-medium sized batches.
