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.
Upgrade Your Tablet Press for Efficiency With regular maintenance, tablet presses can last for many years. However, it’s still essential to modernize your equipment when upgrades become available. If you’re looking to improve your factory’s efficiency or if you frequently battle press-based issues with things like “sticking” it may be time to consider an upgrade. […]
Creating a bi-layer tablet involves compressing two formulations into a single solid oral tablet. The process maintains a physical separation of the formulations by layering one on top of the other. It allows for the controlled delivery of a single or multiple active pharmaceutical ingredients in a single tablet. Bi-layer manufacturing is especially beneficial if one of the layers provides an immediate release and the other layer has a sustained release delivery.
