Tablet tooling generally encompasses tablet punches and dies. Tooling stations traditionally consist of an upper punch, a lower punch, and a die, which are responsible for size, shape, and identification markings of tablets while meeting the specified requirements for dosage uniformity, production efficiency, and aesthetic appearance. Tablet compression tooling follows two standards that are recognized […]

Tableting equipment is used to manufacture a variety of products, ranging from candy to cosmetics and household cleaners to pharmaceuticals. However, producing high-quality products necessitates selecting and using the right tooling, including with regard to punch head shape, size, and material. In operations where the compressed material is abrasive, corrosive, sticky, or otherwise difficult to […]
Pharmaceutical tablets are the oral solid dosage form of one or more medicaments sometimes containing suitable excipients. These substances, typically in powder form, are compacted or pressed into a solid tablet. They vary in size, shape, hardness, thickness, weight, dissolution, and disintegration properties. Tablets account for approximately 90% of dosage forms used for dispensing medication […]
Tablet compression is one of the most pivotal processes for the pharmaceutical industry. It involves using superior-quality pieces of equipment that rely upon ultra-high degrees of precision. The FE55 tablet press from Fette Compacting is the only machine of its performance class capable of manufacturing more than 90% of common tablet forms without additional investments or costly refitting. The […]
A variety of industries rely on efficient capsule-filling capabilities to cost-effectively produce products such as vitamins, supplements, and medication. Though it may seem relatively simple in theory, capsule filling is quite delicate, and measurements must be exact to ensure products are safely within prescribed dosage levels. This process must also be easily repeated to ensure that each capsule is filled consistently to standard.
Swift conversion, cross-machine control, and reliable remote maintenance: in exceptional times such as the Corona-Crisis, it becomes apparent just how fast and comprehensively pharmaceutical manufacturers need to react to changing production conditions. Demand and availability can change at any time. Digital tools can more efficiently organize such requirements for agility.
At Fette Compacting, we continually look for ways to expand our product offerings to better serve our customers. One of our recent product releases—the FE75—serves as a superior tablet press solution for large batches of over 1.6 million pieces per hour.
Pharmaceutical tablets have been around for years, and to many, it may not seem like they’ve changed much compared to other manufacturing products—but what about the process of making these tablets? Just as with any other industry, advances in the tableting process have made it faster, safer, and more cost-efficient. As we move forward, we can expect continued advancements to meet the ever-changing needs of the pharmaceutical industry. Fette Compacting America’s Matt Bundenthal has the inside scoop on this production process, how it has developed in recent years, and where it may be headed in the future.
