Compression Tooling Equipment

Changing the tablet manufacturing process can lead to better and more improved quality products as well as cost efficiency for the company. By communicating with one’s tooling vendor and taking into consideration the right material type, one can overcome the many problems that tablet companies are facing today.

​Cup and Tablet - Depth and Consistency

The cup depth is the space between the punch tip and the lowest possible measurable area of a cup cavity. In order to form proper inspection and wear limits of the tooling equipment, it is important that one should know about it, and how premature wear can affect the tablet.

Case Studies in Capsule Filling – Improving Performance, Effectiveness and Productivity

The rules have changed when it comes to development of products in the pharmaceutical, health and nutritional industry.

As generic and branded companies in the industry struggle with new products while at the same time addressing the need of new patients, the companies must also meet the growing productivity demands in the manufacturing industry.

​Tooling Designs – Different Mixes Need Different Punches

It has always been difficult to market a tablet in the industry today. Aside from time and capital, research and development is also important; that said, one of the most difficult phases is the actual production of the tablet. Plenty of issues arise during production, including tablet quality to downtime of tablet equipment, which can result to delay in shipping of the product. There are steps that one can take to eliminate as well as minimize the issues before manufacturing actually begins.

​Common Tablet Defects That Can Be Avoided Easily

Tablet defects occur for a variety of reasons, but many can easily be avoided. To address defects, technicians involved in tabletting must have a full understanding of both the tabletting process and the materials used. Adequate training in the setting up and use of the machines is vital if the technician is to have the necessary skills to be able to fix equipment and minimize problems in production.

Solutions For Tablet Sticking

One of the major problems that the tablet manufacturing companies faces is tablet sticking. This problem occurs when the granulation sticks to the punch surface causing deformed tablets, which is very costly not only for the manufacturers but also for the formulators. One way to alleviate this problem is using analytical method as well as create screening processes. Authorities or field experts are also looking for ways to create analytical models to identify the solutions quickly for specific problems.

​Where Tableting Technology Is Heading

The industry has been undergoing revolution lately with the increase in the number of patents expiring and the growth of generic producers as well as increase in contract manufacturers. Another force is the increase in the competition with developing markets and other companies that are relocating their facilities to take advantage of these.

​Guide To Multi-Tip Tooling Equipment

The multi tooling equipment has long been used in the pharmaceutical industry and has been in existence for more than 150 years. During the start of the tablet compression industry, companies use single station presses during production and these were outfitted with multi-tipto improve and increase production volume. Aside from volume output, multi-tip tooling also reduces energy, labour, maintenance and requirement for expansion of production areas. In the late 1800’s, a new tooling, the 16-station rotary tablet press was introduced, reducing the need for the single station and multi-tip tooling.
