The MD3-17 machine is capable of counting and feeding vitamin type round tablets, oblong tablets, 2 piece capsules and large fish oil type gelatin capsules.

When dispensing the products into a single pouch the production rate is 45 to 50 bags, pouches per minute. With some products the MD3-17 can fill 1 different product into two side by side pouches (2 pouches, bags per cycle) and then achieve a total through put of 80 bags per minute.
