The tablet press is a very common machine in solid preparations. Before buying, you must fully understand and consider tablet compression. The following article introduces the main characteristics of the tablet press, punches and dies (tableting tools), raw materials/granules/powders, and the relationship between them. This will help eliminate some buying concerns.
Deciding which type of tablet press to buy can be a headache for buyers, especially buyers who have just entered the industry. Faced with different brands, different models, and different specifications of tablet presses, buyers may be at a loss. You can consider the following factors before making a decision instead of buying a tablet press right away.
First, you should carefully plan your production plan. The tablet press purchased must not only meet the production output, but also be suitable for the tablets in production. These factors play an important role in choosing the most suitable tablet press. It is also important for buyers to fully understand the various parts of the entire tablet press production process and the relationships between them.
There are three key parts in the tablet production process: the tablet press (manufacturing machine), the ingredients (powder, grain and granules), and the punch and die (the tablet press die). The tablet press is the core part of tablet production. It cannot work independently. Buyers should consider ingredients and tooling in order to have a complete understanding of them.
Due to the high cost, tablet press buyers usually regard the tablet press as the most important part of the procurement process. The punch and die of the tablet press determine the tablet size, output and compression pressure. The fluidity, compression speed, and compressibility of the pellets will also affect the way you use the tablet press.
The particles have unique size and distribution, fluidity and compression characteristics, which can meet the requirements of tableting. These attributes also determine which tablet press to use.
Punch and die The design of the punch and die determines the size and shape of the tablet. The different materials, coatings and heat treatments used in the pressing tool can affect the pressing operation. So these three factors influence each other.
