An Overview of Segment Technology

Fette Compacting has been at the forefront of tableting innovation for decades, designing technologies that set the standard for efficient tablet and capsule production.

In 1991, we unveiled the PT3090 double-sided tablet press. This machine featured an easily-removable turret assembly that simplified the labor-intensive process of press cleaning. As the turret could be removed and cleaned offline, operators could maximize ‘up’ time by swapping a dirty turret with a clean one, thereby minimizing unnecessary downtime.

Today, nearly 28 years after we first revolutionized the tablet press market, we are unveiling a new cost-saving technology—known as the segmented turret—that promises to further minimize the time and labor required for press setup and maintenance operations.
