Tableting is a key process in pharmaceutical production. In the process it offers great potential for improving Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE).
Along with increasing cost pressures in the pharmaceutical industry, the demands for service capacity in tablet production are also increasing. As a pioneer, Fette Compacting continually develops new solutions for ensuring greater efficiency and cost-effective processes. The advantages of these innovations can be described with impressive figures: While, according to the Association of German Machinery and Equipment Manufacturers (VDMA), the average OEE of tablet production is approximately 30 percent, Fette Compacting generally achieve values of well over 60 percent.
Which factors are responsible for these performance increases? - Initially it is a precisely coordinated complete system that guarantees productivity. These 5 central factors also play an important role:
1. The turret - the heart of tableting
The Pmax turrets from Fette Compacting are the core of the fastest tablet presses in the world. In combination with segments and the F12 punches, users can increase their productivity by up to 40 percent or more. They are available with 45, 66 and 110 stations, also as a retrofit kit.
2. Peripherals - not just a marginal area
Process optimisation provides the greatest potential for savings in modern tablet production. Peripheral devices play an important role here. The offering of Fette Compacting includes, among other things, in-process control systems, dust collectors, cleaning equipment and software.
3. Service - closer to the customer
