MG2 PLANETA Q: we squared the circle

PLANETA is the MG2 best-selling continuous-motion capsule filling machine designed for medium and large productions. MG2 drive for innovation never stops and, even on this model of constant clear success, there is still, nevertheless, some room for improvement that the internal team of designers and the skilled technicians cannot miss.
By strengthening this capsule filling machine qualities: from the modularity to the various weight controls that can be installed, from the user interface to ergonomics, an even more performing capsule filler has been conceived that, at the same time, can meet the specific needs of a new market niche: PLANETA Q.

Innovative design, great flexibility and ergonomics

The first novelty of PLANETA Q is the new design, which is the result of more than 50 years of MG2 experience in the development of capsule filling technology. In fact, a careful study of the operator-machine interaction has led to a more ergonomic design that allows total accessibility to the machine to carry out routine operations, whether they consist in either actual production or maintenance programs.
The machine edgy parts have been reduced and the internal layout has been conceived by focusing on ergonomics. The safety guards are “gull-wing”-shaped and the empty capsule selector SR/I is integrated into the machine, thus allowing for faster intervention by the operator.
The control panel is mobile, which allows it to rotate around PLANETA Q at an angle of 180 degrees, and it is equipped with a 21-inch touchscreen HMI developed ad hoc to make the control of every operation user-friendly. The VPN connection, then, allows faster remote access to ask for online technical assistance. Connectivity is also enhanced thanks to the networking that has been designed for full integration with customers’ corporate network systems.
