The RTP 10i is a compact, stainless steel bodied tablet press packed with advanced features that make it easier to use, safer, more cost-efficient and more effective. From the GMP compliant Perspex turret shield that keeps the user safe and the powder free from contamination to the digital display and control panel and force feeder, this pill press has been designed to fulfil the aims of accuracy, safety and ease of use.

The ‘intelligent’ in the tablet press’s designation comes from the digital display that replaces the cumbersome, slow, manual adjustments required with conventional tablet presses, with a modern and simple touch screen that electronically adjusts all the machine’s key parameters. Not only does this save a huge amount of time and effort, but it also makes it easy to produce tablets of a consistently high quality, by letting the operator focus all their energy on fine adjustments that achieve optimum performance. Stepless speed control further improves the operator’s ability to fine-tune production, while the automatic overpressure safety cut out that avoids damage, forced ventilation and cooling, and a superbly engineered drive mechanism all help ensure years of trouble-free operation.

This pill press has been designed to comply fully with GMP, with operator safety very much in mind. An optional automatic safety cut out is available, and a safety cut out button is built in as standard.

Thoughtful features include a dust guard for the lower plungers, helping to avoid wear of the rail, and the turret surface and key parts being treated with a non-toxic, corrosion resistant surface.

RTP 10i Intelligent Rotary Tablet Press in Use

Simplicity and the obvious quality of this tablet press’s construction both make it an absolute pleasure to use. Although the RTP 10i is not a machine intended for full-scale mass production, at up to 20,400 units an hour it still churns out tablets at a very rapid rate, and their uniformity and finish are excellent.

As you might imagine, the touch screen is a huge advance on old-fashioned controls. Digitisation was bound to catch up with tablet presses at some point, and the RTP 10i shows that it is a beneficial innovation that enhances productivity. It is clearly the way of the future, as it really does make it easier to achieve consistently high-quality results. Digital display and adjustment are more efficient, too, and a lot less wearing on the operator’s mental energy. Which means that the user can concentrate on making better tablets, and get the most benefit out of the fine-tuning that the controls make possible.

The other refinements on this pill press also play their part. The automatic over-pressure cut off, and the forced ventilation and cooling, help provide a comforting sense of reassurance as well as lengthening the tablet press’s life. Features such as the Perspex turret shield and optional automatic cut out make this a very safe machine to use. Despite the RTP 10i’s powerful 2.2 Kw motor, which generates a hefty 80 Kn of pressure, even beginners can use the machine and feel that everything is under control and that there are no daunting surprises around the corner.

Technical Specifications

The RTP10i is an automatic, rotary tablet press with a pre-tabletting feature. Its 10 dies can produce between 3,000-12,000 tablets an hour, with a maximum diameter of 22 mm, or 25 mm for special shapes; a maximum fill depth of 17 mm, and a maximum tablet thickness of 6 mm.

The 2.2 kW motor produces up to 60 kN of pressure or 10 kN for the pre-tabletting stage. The turret speed ranges between 8-30 r/min. The machine is available to operate on 220 V.

LFA's View

Although by no means the fastest tablet press in our line up, the RTP 10i is without a doubt one of the most impressive. It is especially recommended for lab work, clinical trials, veterinary and food technology applications, but its unique features mean that it is popular with a whole range of users. We would also say that the force feeder is well worth investing in, as it makes it that much easier to achieve consistent results, as well as avoiding wastage of powder.

If ease of control, precision, fast production, durability, spotless hygiene, quality of output and excellent safety features are all on your shopping list, then this is the tablet press you are looking for. Large mass producers will possibly go for a machine that has more cutting heads, but research and development, medical research and other applications that need to produce a useful number of tablets quickly and easily, will find the RTP 10i a perfect fit.
