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.

HIDDEN PERFORMANCE RESERVES – PLANT OPTIMIZATION AS THE GENESIS FOR EFFICIENT TABLET PRODUCTION

Many manufacturers do not fully exploit the performance capabilities of modern tablet presses. In the light of the strict rules laid down by the regulation authorities, they are tempted to avoid the complex revalidation of established processes. It is in precisely these cases that product-specific plant optimization, which can permit significant improvements in efficiency within the context of the applicable validation, can help.
