The quality standards for tablet production are constantly growing. At Fette Compacting, our automated tablet hardness testing equipment reduces the workload of your staff while also helping to ensure your production processes comply with applicable regulations. By automating every process step, you can benefit from excellent tablet quality, maximum reliability, and efficient tablet production.

The Checkmaster

The Checkmaster from Fette Compacting is capable of performing automated measurements of crucial tablet parameters, including diameter, thickness, weight, and hardness, and completely integrating them into in-process control concepts. Its key features include:

  • GMP-compliant design
  • Documents all tablet inspection results in your batch report
  • Automatic feedback to tablet weight control loop
  • Precision tablet parameter control with adjustable stop and warning limits
  • 21 CFR Part 11 compliant operation using our Human Machine Interface (HMI)

The Checkmaster offers several advantages, such as:

  • Extremely reliable and accurate weight monitoring
  • Guided calibration and validation process
  • Easy to clean, meaning it’s quickly available after a product changeover
  • Standard configuration can test all common formats, with customized configurations available for non-standard formats
  • Frequent sampling ensures seamless batch documentation

4-Parameter Tester

Similar to the Checkmaster, our 4-Parameter Tester offers fully automated measurement of diameter, thickness, weight, and hardness in a more flexible and modular configuration. Its key features include:

  • Local HMI display for fast test review, calibration, and parameter modification
  • File transfer via Bluetooth printing, USB stick, and Ethernet
  • Rectangular, square, and oval shape-centering device
  • Provides separation between the mechanical and electrical parts and the product area

In addition to its versatile and modular design, the 4-Parameter Tester provides the following benefits:

  • Very quiet testing environment – no air turbulence
  • Easy maintenance, cleaning, validation, and calibration
  • 21 CFR Part 11 operator-friendly software with production tracking, statistics, and values reporting
  • New, stable weighing cell, making it less sensitive to certain production environments

AT50

Fette Compacting’s AT50 can be fully validated and facilitates the automatic positioning of tablets for measuring diameter, thickness, weight, and hardness. This tablet testing system comes standard with an integrated EasyTouch™ touch screen. This software allows you to adjust test parameters to the exact tablet shape, speeding up the measurement process. Other key features of the AT50 include:

  • Modular parts exchange
  • Mettler Toledo weighing cell
  • IP 52 protective housing
  • Ability to integrate into q-doc management software
  • 21 CFR Part 11 compliant control using our HMI
  • Tablet press can automatically trigger tests
  • Optional rollers facilitate precise tablet positioning on diameter/hardness station

The AT50 offers a wide range of benefits, such as:

  • Robust design
  • Easy parts exchange and cleaning
  • Complete integration with tablet press
  • Automatic measurement of all four physical parameters
  • Reliable orientation of tablets with complex shapes
  • Utilizes the same measurement technology as Sotax laboratory devices

NIR Checkmaster

By performing NIR analysis of tablets, our NIR Checkmaster significantly cuts release times and lowers costs associated with batch release procedures. This equipment features the patented NIRCAL-Software for extremely precise and robust calibration. The main benefits of the NIR Checkmaster include:

  • Ability to automatically measure critical tablet parameters during production
  • Facilitates Real-Time-Release capabilities for shorter release times
  • Lower production time and costs
  • Precision tablet positioning for reproducible results
  • Higher process reliability and quality specifications

Weightmaster 6.2

The Weightmaster 6.2 offers a cost-effective solution for in-process control of tablet weight. Its key features include:

  • 21 CFR Part 11 compliant operation using our HMI
  • Very reliable and accurate weight monitoring
  • GMP-compliant design
  • Fully automatic measurement of tablet weight
  • Precision tablet parameter control with adjustable stop and warning limits
  • Automatic feedback to tablet weight control loop

The Weightmaster 6.2 offers several advantages, such as:

  • Frequent sampling ensures seamless batch documentation
  • Easy to clean, meaning it’s quickly available after a product changeover
  • Guided calibration and validation process
  • Documents all tablet inspection results in your batch report
  • Standard configuration can test all common formats, with customized configurations available for non-standard formats
