SVIII is a versatile counting/filling system to pack a variety of products accurately at speed, and requires few or no change parts to allow maximum productivity.

Leading technology in tablet and capsule counting

SVIII is the new counter developed from the Swiftvision experience that boasts over 300 machines supplied.

Thanks to an updated design the SVIII is able to maintain the same reliability of the Swiftvision machines range and add new features to make this counter even more reliable and simpler to operate.

The SVIII counter range can be configured for any product or container requirement. Count speed and accuracy are optimized through the product flow control feeding system, which prevents surges and ensures a constant flow of the product to the count head, independent of the hopper level.
