Tablets utilized for medications, small mints, and other similar products come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. Even their formulations span over a broad range of properties and physical characteristics. Factors such as compressibility, abrasiveness, lubricity, and corrosiveness have the potential to heavily influence how tablets are created.
With the above in mind, it’s easy to understand how a one-size-fits-all approach to tablet press tooling is unlikely to produce favorable results. Any company employing the use of tablet presses, that manufacture a wide array of tablets, cannot rely on tooling and machinery meant for use in just any application.
The most practical solution to these issues lies in optimizing tooling to suit the products being manufactured. In this way, brands can minimize excessive tableting problems and boost efficiency. Working to create a customized tableting system mitigates issues such as picking, sticking, capping and excessive tool wear.
