Emballage is a great showcase for two among the latest novelties by MG2: the containment version of FlexaLAB, a well-appreciated capsule fillers designed for R&D laboratories and small production batches, and the vertical case packer GTL30, an advanced end-of-line solution, already adopted by several important international companies.

FlexaLAB for containment
FlexaLAB for containment is the evolution of the well-known MG2’s capsule filler for laboratories. The containment system features a particular liftable isolator concept, which allows the machine to keep its peculiarity to change different dosing units. This result is obtained while  ensuring proper production safety, for both the operator and the environment; in fact, the system allows the machine to satisfy the highest containment class, OEL5, guaranteeing a concentration of active substance lower than 1 µg per cubic metre. FlexaLAB containment version can be equipped with a Wet-in-Place system, which allows to  fix powders when the production cycle ends, before opening the isolator. Through the same spray gun it is possible to use both liquids and compressed air. By adding some spray balls and other devices, FlexaLAB is configured for a complete Wash-In-Place system, to further automate the cleaning process. Other optional devices enable to customize the production outfeed to an external container or a continuous liner, as well as the connection to other devices, such as a deduster or a metal detector.

GTL30: the ideal solution for the end-of-line
GTL30 is an easy-to-use and easy-to-maintain vertical case packer. Unit maintenance and cleaning is greatly facilitated thanks to its cantilever (balcony) type design. GTL30 achieves the right balance between the high quality mechanical design that guarantees positive case opening, erection and handling and the highly advanced electronic technology that incorporates the use of brushless motors for the main machine movements. Compressed air system is only used for the secondary movements.  GTL30 is available in two versions (GTL30 – GTL30/L) to run different case size ranges. Case closure can be either hot-melt or tape. Case packing section does not require any size parts in that different case sizes can be accommodated by simple and precise adjustments via the use of three hand-wheels. Various types of product in-feed systems are available. The in-feed system can be installed to the right or the left of the case magazine. GTL30 is a state-of-the-art solution, trusted by many companies who chose this MG2 machine for their end-of-line requirements. The machine on show is going to be shipped to Mitaca, a company of the Illy Group from Trieste, who chose MG2 for several packaging lines for coffee and infusions. These machines are equipped with a product feeding unit based on robots, in order to get a precise and delicate handling of the pouches containing capsules or pods. This solution also guarantees a wide flexibility as for the number and position of multipacks inside the case.
