Help Your Tablet Tooling to Pack a Punch with Essential Maintenance Measures

Tablet compression tools are often viewed as consumable items; therefore, maintenance can be seen as unnecessary and time-consuming. This can be a costly mistake and can directly affect production. Keeping tooling in good working condition not only reduces tablet press downtime but also minimises compression problems. Alex Bunting at I Holland looks at research which shows that when tooling is combined with a management system to monitor all aspects of the punches and dies, high-quality tablets are produced quickly and efficiently.
