A tablet press machine vital in the pharmaceutical industry for the simple reason that a large portion of the drugs prescribed & administered is in the tablet form. This is a machine that uses compression force to create a tablet. These can be several shapes and sizes. Although this is mainly used in the pharmaceutical industry, it also has several applications like in the cosmetic industry.
There are two types of the tablet press machine, the single station, and multiple stations. The single station is a fairly low capacity machine while the multiple capacity machines is the one that can handle large scale production demands like 70,000 tablets/hour. The multiple station machine also has a more complicated design & structure and is also called a rotary press.
Difference between Double Rotary Tablet Press and Single Punch Pill Press machine
The double rotary tablet press machine has several advantages over the simple pill press machines:
- Higher output: The hourly output of a rotary machine is tens or hundred thousand per hour however, that of a single press machine is just about 100. This output is a lot more.
- More Efficient: It is an automatic machine, hence the entire process of filling the powder, tablet pressing, rejecting and processing in streamlined. This makes it a more efficient machine compared to the other one and saves a lot of time and labor.
- More Hygienic: This machine is fully automatic and also fully enclosed, thus reducing the chances of contamination.
