Sky Softgel Dual Twin Head Electronic Counter

Sky Softgel Dual Twin Head Electronic Counter

The Sky Softgel dual twin head electronic counter is used for bottle filling lines for pharmaceutical solid doses such as tablets, capsules, or soft gels. The electronic counting heads count the precise amount of tablets into each bottle. Each half contains 12 channels and two counting heads which optimize it for higher throughputs but with lower tablet counts per bottle.

Thomas Packaging has been the exclusive distributor in the USA, Canada, and Puerto Rico for Sky Softgel’s line electronic tablet counters since 2012. This partnership combines Sky’s leading technology with Thomas Packaging’s local engineering and technical support to provide electronic counter bottle filling lines for any application.

Sky Softgel is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of electronic tablet counters. Originally developed for counting translucent softgels, their electronic tablet counter can handle even the toughest products to count. Their counters are available in a single, dual, quad, or twin head configuration for various tablet and bottle throughput rates. The Sky line of tablet counters is unique in the industry because, through a proprietary algorithm, even the first bottle at startup is filled properly and is not rejected.

To supplement the electronic counters, Sky offers all the ancillaries required to make a complete bottle filling line. Instead of buying components individually from different vendors, buy a complete line from Service Industries and Sky so that the entire line can be tested together before shipment. We offer everything required for a bottle filling line from unscramblers and turn tables for infeed to the labeler and turntable at the end of the line. These components can be bought as part of a complete bottle filling line or purchased separately.
