Whether it is cream in tubes, chocolate with crispies in thermo-formed portion cups, or gel in bags, today’s consumer packaging regulations as well as large production numbers have created an unprecedented demand for the exact volumetric dosing and filling of products in the food, cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries. We are well equipped to meet all the challenges to do with Filling, where many factors play a significant role and demand a high degree of professional know-how, e.g. in the selection of elastomers or seals for hot filling (high temperatures) or in CIP cleaning or SIP sterilization processes.
All our Filling Systems can be used for semi-automatic or fully automatic filling operations.

The following examples show how our customers in the food, cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries profit from our know-how:
Filling of cooling gel
The customer would like to fill compress packs with cooling gel from a tank. A filling volume of 100 - 1000 ml gel within eight seconds is required. After filling, the medium must be free of air and gas bubbles.
Filling of veterinary medicine
The customer wants to fill veterinary medicine into tubes. Approx. 50 ml is to be filled within 0.6 seconds, with a repeat accuracy tolerance lower than 1 %. We supplied the customer with a reliable and automatic filling unit that complies with the highest standards of hygiene.
Filling of body care products and foodstuffs
The customer would like to fill various cosmetic products and foodstuffs, ranging from liquid to pasty, into different containers. The filling volume of the products is between 100 ml and 200 ml. In addition, volumes of 40 ml have to be filled for use as samples. The product viscosities are from 1 - 30,000 mPas at approx. 20 °C operating temperature.
Filling of chocolate with crispies
The customer requires the filling of chocolate cream into 30 ml thermoformed portion cups at 20 cyles per minute. The cream contains small crispy balls that must not get damaged. The viscosity of the cream is approx. 10,000 mPas. Altogether six portion cups are filled at once per cycle. Since the customer fills other products, the filling units also have to operate in pairs on other installations.
