ADEPT Mega Tablet Press

Editor's Notes

  1. Hello Friends, Today I am here to talk about the Rotary Tablet Press. But before I begin, I must admit to you that I am not a good speaker. Hence I would prefer it to be an interactive session rather than a speech. So at any point if you have any clarifications, questions or observations please do not hesitate to ask me right then.
  2. What I will cover in today’s presentation are the important machine parts and what role each of them plays. However, for the benefit of my young friends, who were not around at that time, I would like to quickly take you through the evolution of the tablet press.
  3. In the early days, the single stroke press was manually operated and the output was about 150 tablets per hour. Later it was motorized and the output increased to 900 tablets per hour.
  4. And the latest in Rotary Tablet Press are electronically instrumented presses which can run at 60-90 RPM and give an output of 500,000 tablets per hour. In fact the Korsch XL-800, 95 station press can give an output of 1,000,000 tablets per hour.
  5. Now we will get to the main section of the presentation. What I will do is to take you through the important parts of the Press and for every part I will try and explain its: Function Importance Benefits Setting Inspection & Maintenance Common problems Recent developments
  6. Conventional machines can be changed to higher stations to get more production. For example a 16 stations D tooling turret can be changed to a 32 station BB tooling turret. This will give double production on the same machine. Similarly 27 station B tooling turret can be changed to 45 station BB tooling, which will give 65% more production In the same sequence 27 station B tooling turret is changed to 59 station A tooling, which gives 120% more output. Till date we have successfully upgraded over 200 turrets
