Tableting tools

UNYIELDING IN THE FACE OF TOUGH INGREDIENTS

Pharmaceutical ingredients present tableting tools with tough challenges. Formulations containing minerals, for example, encourage wear. Thermolabile granulates tend to adhere, which presents a particular challenge to continuous production. Users can significantly reduce these effects and optimize the production process through the use of the right punch heads, materials and coatings.

LIT UP IN A FLASH: ACTIVE INGREDIENT ANALYSIS IN TABLETING

With medication, no matter the batch size, every single tablet must contain exactly the same amount of active ingredient in order to permit reliable administration to patients. Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIR) is a suitable inspection method for the material properties of pharmaceutical products. The VisioNIR LS system, from Fette Compacting and visiotec, offers an analytical method whose precision and speed is optimally matched to the requirements of tableting.

Technology

AIR SORTING IN TABLET PRESSES

Compressed air is used on many of Fette Compacting's tablet presses so as to avoid damaging ejected tablets and to treat the tablets gently. The improved air sorting equipment can be used for almost any tablet format.

MORE PROTECTION AND QUALITY FOR TABLETS AND PELLETS

The pressing space coating system transports lubricant in powder form to the tablet press, thereby coating the pressing tools — even when production is ongoing. Consequently, the lubricant no longer has to be added to the formulation.

ONGOING PRODUCTION AT A GLANCE

Less waste and overall quicker manufacturing processes — this is ensured by a precise measurement of the tablets, which is carried out even when production is ongoing.
