An automatic measurement system ensures the production quality of tablets
High performance pill presses are fitted with quickly interchangeable matrix disk units in order to minimise cleaning and setting up times when employing press tools. In automated production a high level of precision is required to ensure the quality of each individual pill. In production up to 47 stamp pairs pass through the press station in a circular arrangement and, due to their high production rate, are subject to a certain amount of wear. Here, an automatic system for the stamp measurement can ensure the optimum press quality.
