Accurate capsule weight control system debuts
On-board 100% weight control system for capsule fillers also continuously calibrates to improve production processes in real time
MG America (mgamerica.com), the U.S. subsidiary of MG2 of Bologna, Italy and a leading supplier of processing and packaging equipment, now offers the on-board MultiNETT Weight Control System, the market’s most accurate to date for capsule manufacturing lines.
MultiNETT is a 100% weight control system that monitors and reports the net weight of each dosed capsule. In doing so, MultiNETT – which can check product microdosages and different components in various dosage combinations – achieves an unsurpassed degree of accuracy, even for low-dose applications.
In addition, MultiNETT’s continuous, precise measuring of dosages optimizes production by monitoring process indexes and identifying possible improvements. If necessary, MultiNETT self-adjusts the dosing chamber to keep the process in line with required parameters. Moreover, the analysis of data supplied by MultiNETT identifies – in real time and without production interruption – the dosators requiring a check, in order to optimize batch quality.
“The MultiNett 100% Weight Control System helps manufacturers guarantee that all products going to market completely comply with today’s strict guidelines,” says Fabio Trippodo, president of MG America. “In addition, the system’s ability to recalibrate in real-time, and thereby improve the entire capsule filling process, makes it an even more valuable asset to overall quality assurance. In this way, MultiNETT stands alone as a truly comprehensive workflow solution.”
MultiNETT’s technology can be applied to production machines as well as those used in laboratories.
