  • The Multifiller is able to automatically dose various types of small or medium-sized solid products into rigid glass, tinplate or plastic containers.
  • A Spice Dispenser can dose a vast range of products, such as powdered or dried spices, dried or granular vegetables, into cylindrical or shaped aluminium, tinplate, glass, plastic or cardboard containers.

Fillers for liquid products:

  • Gravity Filler is a strong and reliable type of machine to fill liquid and semi-thick products into rigid glass, aluminium, plastic or tinplate containers.
  • Internal Valve Vacuum Filler is suitable to fill liquid or thick products, with or without suspended solids.
  • Laminar Flow filler is suitable to fill liquid products, such as brine, sugar syrup or tomato sauce, into empty or partially filled containers. These may contain whole, diced or sliced products.

Fillers for solid & liquid products:

  • Linear Vertical Valve Piston Filler is designed to fill products with or without suspended solid pieces like flat liquid products such as juice and dressing sauce; as well as viscous products such as marmalade, ketchup, mayonnaise, tomato paste, condensed/evaporated milk, edible oil; and high-viscous products such as pet food, baby food, pâté, puree and soups.

  • Vacuum Fillers are designed to fill metallic or glass recipients that already contain solid product with a preserving liquid such as brine. The Vacuum Fillers are equipped with a system to create vacuum by means of a dedicated pump and rotary distributor. This system expels the air from the containers and then fills them with the preserving liquid.

  • The Seamer is a machine that automatically guarantees the seaming of empty cans or jars containing the most various kinds of product. Seaming is a process through which a cylindrical container and a lid are sealed. The containers can be of white latten, aluminium, plastic or cardboard with ‘open top’, ‘easy open’ or ‘easy peel’ lids. During the seaming process, the containers are lifted on rolling plates that are raised until they reach the lid to be seamed.
