We squared the circle

Year 2000: Planeta, the innovative continuous-motion capsule filler is born. It is the first round-designed machine, which turned out to become MG2 best seller with its more than 150 sold copies. 

Year 2020: from the circle of Planeta, the square of Planeta Q is born; the same flexibility from low to high production capacity, but a new green soul in a capsule filler with containment system.
