Getting the Best ROI Out of Your Tooling

Although tooling represents a substantial investment for tablet manufacturers, the importance of proper tooling maintenance is often underestimated. Excessive tooling wear from inadequate maintenance can lead to tablet quality issues, including sticking, capping, and discoloration before or after production.

Fortunately, many of these issues are preventable by training machine operators to regularly perform restorative procedures aimed at maintaining tooling quality. Implementing a polishing and refurbishing routine is an effective and inexpensive way to ensure high-quality tablet yields, reduce production-related costs, and maximize the ROI potential on your tooling investment. Proper maintenance has the potential to extend tooling life by as much as 80%.

Preventive Maintenance for Your Tablet Press Machine

Waiting until tablet presses or other pieces of pharmaceutical equipment break down can be a costly mistake. Instead of waiting for malfunctions or unexpected incidents that may halt or decrease production, manufacturing facility managers should implement consistent preventative maintenance procedures.

Daily inspections and regular tune-ups can maintain tablet presses in like-new condition and reduce irregular contact wear, noises, and process malfunctions. Regular preventative maintenance also ensures that tablets are produced according to exact physical and chemical parameters.
