Modu-C MS

Powerful at mid-speed: The versatile capsule filling machine in medium power range


The Modu-C MS is especially designed for reliable and flexible capsule production. The patented trolley system allows a rapid change of the dosing systems for powder, pellets, tablets, mini tablets and liquid. The machine is impressive with its ease of use and minimum set-up and down times during format changes and cleaning.

  • Flexible with replaceable dosing trolleys
  • PRP-function (Person reduced production)
  • Calibration bar to detect deformed capsules, exhaust function of deformed capsules, differential pressure measurement to inspect the presence of capsule bottoms, capsule closure inspection and single elimination of bad capsules.
  • Minimum set-up time
  • Easy operation and cleaning
  • Minimized product loss with No-Cap-No-Fill function
  • Video

    The Modu-C MS is a compact platform suitable for pharmaceutical applications for capsule production in the medium power range.

  • Modu-C MS – Empty capsule feeding via a central feeding column

    Precision in production: Empty capsules are fed, separated and inspected for damage in this station.

  • Modu-C MS - Trolley concept with drum filler for powder micro-dosing

    Replaceable trolley with drum filler. Ideal for powder micro-dosing of extremely cohesive powders and powders with tiny particle sizes. Multiple-dosing is possible. Volumetric dosing by filling dosing holes in the filling drum, without compacting powder.

  • Modu-C MS - Trolley with tamping pin for quick capsule filling

    Replaceable trolley with tamping pin. Ideal for powder dosing with high yield. Processing of abrasive and cohesive powders with good as well as poor flow properties. Automatic adjustment of the tamping pin force.

  • Modu-C MS - Trolley for accurate tablet dosing

    Tablets can be dosed with extreme count accuracy at a high yield with the tablet station. Sensors monitor the fill level and the number of dosed tablets.

  • Modu-C MS - Liquid dosing station designed to fill liquid media

    The liquid station covers a wide range of viscosities. When processing mucilaginous media, the capsule bottoms are lifted to support the dosing process.

  • Modu-C MS - Round motion machine for production of high quality capsule products

    All functions needed to produce capsule products are included in the Modu-C round motion unit: Opening and separating, filling, capsule capping and separating good and bad products.

  • Modu-C MS - Ejects non-separated capsules

    Ejects non-separated capsules and sucks them out.

  • Replaceable trolley for dosing of powder.

    Replaceable trolley with dosator. Ideal for the dosing of cohesive powders and powders with inferior flow characteristics.

  • The pellet station is ideal for all common pellet sizes.

    Replaceable trolley with pellet station. Ideal for all common pellets sizes with a high output. Integrated solutions to prevent bridge building and optimized product flow. Automatic adjustment of the fill volume via HMI or in-line or online system.

  • Micro-tablet station for precise dosing of up to four tablets in capsules.

    Replaceable trolley with micro-tablet station. Dosing of up to four different micro-tablets in one capsule – nondestructive and precise.

  • Replaceable trolley with liquid station.

    Replaceable trolley with liquid station. Thixotropic and hot-melting liquids are kept in continuous motion at constant temperature, even during machine standstill.

Machine features

Trolley concept

The patented dosing trolley system allows the operator to quickly change the dosing method: Whether powder, pellets, tablets, mini-tablets or liquid – the next dosing process is already set up. Short setup times, fast cleaning, maximum productivity. Plug-and-play options for the process change.

Capacitive weight inspection

Fastest process analytics through mass acquisition: The mass-specific AMV sensor allows for 100% inspection during the dosing of powders and pellets. The PAT method is independent of the target vessel.

Combination filling

Various dosing systems allow combination fillings with up to three products such as powders, pellets, tablets, mini-tablets, powder blends, active ingredients or liquids. It is even possible to fill capsules into capsules.

Peripheral network

Standard interfaces (MES, ActiveDirectory, OPC, …) allow the customer-specific peripherals to communicated with the IT network of the Harro Höfliger systems.
