Desktop Tablet Presses

Over the last 10 years, the goal of LFA has been to provide the resources necessary to get your tableting project moving forward. Our Desktop Tablet Press range is incredibly popular among small businesses and entrepreneurs because of the low costs and ability to produce up to 5,000 tablets an hour. These machines pay for themselves very quickly for those reasons. Our TDP range is also very popular among R&D (Research and Development) departments and universities due to the low quantity of ingredients needed to run the machine, low running costs and the ability to change tooling very quickly which makes R&D very easy.

If you have at least one idea that you think could have some traction behind it but don’t have the time to learn how to use a tablet press, rest assured. Every purchase on any LFA machinery comes with free training at LFA and within just a few hours you’ll know everything you will need to know. Training can be done at an LFA facility or over video chat. We also have a video and article section which has helped some of our customers go from not knowing where to get started, to setting up and running successful businesses such as Oxford Vitality & Bite.

Rotary Tablet Presses

While Desktop Tablet Presses like the TDP 5 is capable of doing 5,000 tablets per hour, they are not designed to this all the time. Rotary Tablet Press, however, are designed for incredible output and efficiency in large batches. These machines are capable of producing 16,000 - 240,000 tablets per hour depending on your budget and are designed to keep downtime low so that you can have your machine running and making you money as much as possible.

We offer unlimited operator training and support for life. If you do run into a problem with your machine, simply pick up the phone and one of our experts will figure out the problem is and what needs to be done to get production running again.

Over the years by far the biggest problems our customers have is getting their tablet mix correct. When you are just starting out it can often take weeks or months to learn and test different excipients and it’s very expensive to do this. We saw too many amazing projects fail for making this mistake which is why we created Firmapress, an all in one tableting mix where you simply apply your active ingredient and know for certain that it will work. This way you can start taking orders or developing your formula as soon as you get your machine and generate essential cash flow and progress your project very quickly.

Customers working in large scale facilities and with more complicated formulas do sometimes prefer to use their own excipient mixes, which we do support with our excipient range as well as Firmapress.

Vice Handheld Press

It used to be the biggest problem with R&D was costs. It would cost thousands to get your ideas into the real world with no guarantee that they had any traction behind them.

With just a small investment, you can take all of your ideas from just ideas to something real that you can hold in your hand. From there you can test the results, improve your formulas and find out what the world thinks about them before spending any serious money.
