Upgrades Overview Chart

Upgrading your existing Fette Compacting tablet presses will help you increase your profitability and decrease your downtime. We have options for all budgets, and even the smallest upgrade can have impactful returns on your investment.

The benefits of enhancing your established machines include:

  • Improved user friendliness
  • Higher productivity

  • Reduced production costs

  • Increased product quality

  • Optimized supply of spare parts

  • Increased value of tablet press

  • Prolonged service life

Segment Technology

Fette’s innovative segmented technology offers unmatched performance potential. Reducing cleaning and set-up time while also reducing the risk of cross contamination when changing products, makes this a sound investment. As an added bonus, segments can help reduce your product loss thanks to the smooth surfaces and lack of rough edges.

PMAX Turrets

PMax Turrets

How do you increase your tablet output for small tablets while being able to control individual tablet rejection? With Fette’s exclusive Pmax technology for FS12 tooling.

Offers:
  • Identical filling and dwell times

  • Smooth machine operation

  • Single compression force measurement

  • Precise ejection of bad tablets

  • Reduced wear and cost

  • Familiar production parameters and features

Torque Drive

Installing a direct torque drive on your existing Fette Compacting tablet press introduces a range of advantages that results in higher profitability and improved working conditions. Benefits include significantly lower current consumption, high torque, particularly at high speeds, no consumable parts, no expensive service work, and smooth running of the tablet press.

Torque Drive

Windows Embedded and DC2-Windows

Increase your work reliability with the Windows Embedded and DC2-Windows software. Windows 7-Embedded offers easy integration of new software developments by simplifying operations, increasing flexibility and increasing process reliability. Some features include central user management, on both operating system and network levels, as well as complete documentation of product change.

OZB Checkmaster

Satisfy your demand for efficiency and upgrade to the OZB Checkmaster. By precisely measuring the weight, height, diameter, and hardness of a tablet this mechanism helps log a complete batch of data. Along with an automatic in-process control and easy conversion of existing instruments, the OZB Checkmaster can reduce modification costs and increase process security.

Stainless Steel Fill-O-Matic

Reduce your product loss with the stainless steel Fill-O-Matic, which has a 3-chamber system (i.e. filling-, distributing- and dosing wheels). GMP-compatible surfaces allot for easy and fast cleaning with minimal surface roughness.

Fill-O-Matic Exchangeable Sealing Frames

Fette’s goal is to develop simple tools for efficient production. The Fill-O-Matic baseplate with exchangeable inserts is fast and easy to dismantle without tools. Three different sizes of sealinginserts (11 mm, 16 mm, 25 mm) are available in bronze or PETP and can be matched for use to specific tablet sizes. Powder filling is optimized, conversion times are shortened, process security is increased, and product loss can be reduced.

D-CAS

Fette’s goal is to develop simple tools for efficient production. The Fill-O-Matic baseplate with exchangeable inserts is fast and easy to dismantle without tools. Three different sizes of sealing inserts (11 mm, 16 mm, 25 mm) are available in bronze or PETP and can be matched for use to specific tablet sizes. Powder filling is optimized, conversion times are shortened, process security is increased, and product loss can be reduced.

Air Reject

Fette’s product-saving air reject features immediate rejection at the die table for early elimination of bad tablets. Along with a long lifespan, down-time is reduced, the rejected tablets remain undamaged and a post-rejection analysis is provided. This device is particularly suitable for very small tablets, very light tablets, and sophisticated shapes. Depending on machine model type, our air reject is available with the air curtain feature for precision tablet rejection.

Dust-tight Tablet Chute

Leading edge technology, such as the dust-tight tablet chute, reduces dust levels, shortens conversion times, and increases process security. The separate controller and discharge unit with non-contacting magnetic drive can reduce the wear. Plus, the discharge unit is completely enclosed with food-grade acrylic housing. All product parts can be machine cleaned and are fast and easy to dismantle without tools.

Fill-O-Matic Three-Point Adjustment

Fast Bi-layer Sampling

Fill-O-Matic Three-Point Adjustment

Adjustment for older tablet presses can be simplified from four adjustment points to three. Set-up and downtime after a product change will be reduced, as well as the overall changeover time.

Fast Bi-layer Sampling

Fast sampling of first layer will improve the automatic in-process control for bi-layer tablets. Fette’s pneumatic ejector can reduce sampling time by up to 80% and minimize production loss.
