Tablet Forming Machine Optimization

Tablet Forming Machine Optimization Diagram

A pharmaceutical tablet producer wanted to monitor the forces applied by the tablet forming machine in an effort to understand the relationship between raw material, dies set, forming force, and motor cycle speed. The goal was to improve productivity and efficiency of the tablet forming process, while reducing losses (i.e. cracked tablets or voids) by adding a dimension of feedback that could be used to assign specific press adjustment criterion for given inputs.

Learn how this was accomplished using the Interface Model WMC Sealed Stainless Steel Mini Load Cell and a Model 9320 Portable Load Cell Indicator.
