The unit’s modular design results in a highly configurable platform suitable for a wide array of production requirements, including an ability to fit several dosing units simultaneously, enabling one capsule to be filled with differing products. Dosing units ascribe to a “no capsule, no dosage” concept, ensuring superior machine cleaning as well as reduction of both product waste and exposure.

The PLANETA 200 also is scalable. It can, for example, initially be configured for medium speeds, then upgraded later for maximum speeds, reaching different performances depending on the number and type of dosing units installed.

Its weight control system also can be upgraded post-installation; this includes facets as simple as statistical control of capsule gross weight up to the highly advanced MultiNETT system, which allows in-process net weight checks of each capsule and, in the case of same-capsule dosing combinations, each dosed product. PLANETA 200 also can be equipped with isolators satisfying different containment levels, as well as various washing systems ranging from Wet-In-Place to Wash/Clean-In-Place automatic systems.
