Asterra Rotary Filling Machine

Shemesh to debut ASTERRA – a NEW high-end fast rotary filler for viscous and non-viscous products – at the PPMA 21 Show in Birmingham, UK

Despite the unprecedented challenges faced by the industry during the COVID19 pandemic, Shemesh Automation, a global leader in packaging machinery, continue to innovate!


It is because of that commitment to its “always forward” ethos, that Shemesh is delighted to debut the ASTERRA – a breakthrough in Rotary Piston Filling technology suitable for Viscous and Free flowing products.

Not only will Shemesh’s team be on hand at the show, to talk you through what makes the ASTERRA so special, but you will also be able to witness the ASTERRA doing what it does best – live at the show – stand B20!

Tony Bryant, Shemesh’s UK Director commented: as a proud PPMA member and UK ever-present exhibitor at the Show in Birmingham, we are excited to finally return in-person!!. To mark the occasion, we have really pulled out all the stops and will be debuting our very latest innovation The ASTERRA – you can see for yourself why we believe it to be so special as we will have the system in full demo mode!

The team and myself will be on hand to discuss the ASTERRA and our entire range of industry-leading machinery, and after what seems such a long hiatus from physical tradeshows, we couldn’t be more excited to welcome everyone back to some sort of normality!
