Interhex 2016

FAST, INDIVIDUAL, DIGITAL: WHAT CUSTOMERS EXPECT OF GLOBAL SUPPORT

Trade fairs such as the Interphex 2016 are more than mere platforms for presenting new machinery. They also offer the opportunity to exchange information with regard to current requirements on technical support and consulting. In New York City, Fette Compacting will be availing of the opportunity to interact with American and international pharmaceutical customers in order to find out what they expect of a machine manufacturer: from individual service through around-the-clock availability to secure digital networking. Insights into this issue are provided by Lars Plüschau, Director Global Customer Support.

General overhauls for tablet presses

MAKE THE OLD NEW AGAIN

Fette Compacting has been making tablet presses since 1948. The first-generation machines have long been museum-pieces, but many older tablet presses are, nevertheless, still working today. Christian Peters, Manager of the Factory Rebuild Centre at Fette Compacting, and his team specialize in general overhauls. In an interview with Pharmaproduktion he talks about the options open to users for extending the life-cycle of their machines and getting the best out of their investment.

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.
