    Frequently asked questions - FAQ

    A Tablet Press is always used where powder is to be compressed into tablets. As a rule, this involves pharmaceutical products. However, not only medicines, but also lifestyle products, dietary supplements and cosmetics can be turned into products for the trade and the end consumer in a tablet press. The advantage of a tablet press is obvious: it guarantees that the tablets produced are uniform in size, shape and weight - the last point in particular is of paramount importance when it comes to the production of tablets for medical use.
    When using a Tablet Press the starting product is always a powder - and this is completely independent of the final product in which it is to be used later. The powder can consist of different substances. These depend on the objective pursued in the use of the future tablets. In addition to active substances, excipients are of course also added to the powder - for example, colorants, but also binders and similar excipients. The ready-mixed powder is then filled into the tablet press. Depending on the size of the tablet press, the capacity of the machine is also aligned. This means: The larger the machine, the more powder can be filled in - and the more tablets can be produced in one operation. The powder is then fed via a hopper into a die, which is fitted with punches from above and below and then presses the powder into the desired shape. The result is a finished and durable tablet that is also ready for further processing or packaging.
    Tablets, which are filled with a Tablet Press are usually made from granular starting material. The finer and more powdery the powder, the more concentrated the end product. However, not every tablet is also intended for use with superfine powder - here it is worth taking a look at the specific requirements of the machine. Only professional use guarantees a satisfactory result for manufacturers and also for consumers. As a rule, moist starting materials cannot be used either. Here, too, the use and permissibility of the moisture contained depends on the specific tablet press. In the context of flexible use of the tablet press, another aspect is of concern to manufacturers and producers: not all tablet presses allow the choice between purely mechanical manual operation and electrical operation in the context of large-scale production. In the case of a flexible tablet press, this can certainly be set on a case-by-case basis - this means that production can be customized and individually adapted accordingly at any time without causing production downtimes and unnecessary costs.
