Over the life of any rotary tablet press, the turret will see wear and tear. This occurs for the tooling travelling up and down in the press at high speeds.
If a turret has not been maintained regularly with careful cleaning oiling and greasing then its life will be dramatically reduced. The typical tolerance for a rotary tablet press turret is ± 0.01mm according to the ISO 180084 standards. It is a good idea from time to time to check the tolerance of your turret as if it moves out of specification this can result in faster wear of your tablet press tooling and eventually catastrophic failure of your tablet press.
If you think that your turret is out of tolerance then please do get in contact. You can do this via our contact page.
