High performance tablet presses for the modern production environment need to be fast, accurate and flexible. Rapid changeover, simple operation and high volumes with minimum rejection rate are all key features required, as well as minimal maintenance and user intervention.
The Sejong Pharmatech P420S series of tablet presses have been designed to offer immediate productivity improvements to tablet production lines. Designed to provide up to 10,000kgf of pressure and outputs of over 300,000 units per hour, these units offer some of the highest levels of performance with low cost of operation, and can produce round or oblong tablets up to 25mm diameter/length and up to 8.5mm thickness.
The P420S series features an efficient single impeller feed system, reducing the number of parts required and simplifying and speeding up cleaning and maintenance. A new design of powder feed pipe improves powder flow, allowing for greater efficiency and higher output compared to other press designs.
The user interface is based on a clear 15” touch screen display, with clear and simple layout and controls. Advanced features include a completely graphical error display system in case of malfunction or performance issue, directing operator to the fault for rapid resolution. The operating system is fully 21CFR part 11 compatible, meaning record keeping for regulatory compliance and optimum performance is simple.
The P420S features a fully automatic discharge chute with sample gate. Rejected tablets are also automatically sorted when the machine sensors detect a defective tablet or as a result of the automatic weight control system.
All punches and rails are protected by advanced load cells that constantly monitor the machine performance and prevent these vital parts from damage, prolonging machine life and reducing maintenance. Upper and lower punches benefit from an automated lubrication system, removing the need for operator input.
