Although many tablet production processes are now fully automated, manual work is still required when tableting tools are stored, transported and cleaned. Unfortunately, the more often users have to touch the tools, the higher the risk of damaging them, especially the punches. Fette Compacting’s new case system means those days are over.
Frankfurt a.M./Schwarzenbek, 15 June 2015 – Tableting punches play a decisive role in tablet quality. However, punches are extremely sensitive. Even minor shocks, as regularly occur when storing or cleaning punches, can cause damage to their surfaces. The more often users have to touch tools, the higher the risk of damaging them.
At ACHEMA 2015, Fette Compacting is introducing the first all-in-one solution covering all steps of the tool handling process. The patent-pending TRI.EASY Case System consists of three different case types for punches, dies and segments that ensure these tools can not only be stored and transported safely, but also cleaned without risk of damage. Punches and dies are stored in special trays, which can be directly placed in an ultrasonic bath. The tools no longer have to be inserted into separate tableting punch holders for cleaning. In addition, because the cases have a maximum weight of 15 kilograms including tools, they make handling extremely easy.
The TRI.EASY Case System will be available for all Fette Compacting punches, dies and segments in the first quarter of 2016.
