Adjustable die, Production rate, Quality, TSM (Tablet Specification Manual).
Tablet compressing is an established manufacturing process with multiple applications in pharmaceutical, dietary supplement, food, cosmetic, diagnostic, and other industries. Actual tablet compressing may be subdivided into four stages: Filling, metering, compression, and ejection. The current overall research is oriented on tablet used in the medical field, where the accuracy, weight and drug content is more important. This paper specifically deals with the camphor tablet making machine. In this study various types of tablet compressing machines and tooling methods are discussed. In this work, selection of tooling is done by referring to the TSM (Tablet Specification Manual), which specify the dimensions of punch and dies and other factors affecting the machine. By using rotary tablet making machines the production rate and quality of product is increased. In future work can be carried out in adjustable die system with many other creative and innovative applications.
