Detailed design of pharmaceutical and nutraceutical tablets is
essential in order to produce robust tablets with bespoke designs.
Tablet manufacturers should not overlook tablet design because
it is key to the quality of the end product. Good tablet design is
extremely important; it has an impact upon anti-counterfeiting,
tooling strength, tablet coating, durability and functionality. Good
tablet design helps to avoid downstream manufacturing problems
such as tablet sticking, picking, lamination, capping and premature
tooling failures. I Holland’s Product Design Manager, Steve Osborn
explains why good tablet design is so important.
