Pharmaceutical R&D - Small to Medium Scale Compression

MODUL™ P Tablet Press

MODUL™ P 'ECM' technology with advanced dual control for R&D and small to medium production for single & bi-layer tableting.

Pharma Product MODUL P

The MODUL™ P tablet press provides similar performance and control characteristics to its PERFORMA™ cousin – with one essential difference: the ECM. The MODUL™ P is ideally suited for formulation development, clinical trial production and small-batch / multi-product production. The extremely short changeover time offered by the MODUL™ P results in a tremendous increase in productivity, especially when the production schedule involves a succession of many small batches.

Small-scale Production

The MODUL™ P features the unique Exchange Compression Module (ECM) for standard and high containment applications. The ECM encloses all product-contact parts in a sealed unit and can quickly and easily be removed from the machine in a contained manner for cleaning and replaced with a pre-prepared unit to allow production to resume in 30 minutes.

Small-scale Continuous Bi-layer Tablet Production

The MODUL™ P is also available with an Exchangeable Compression Module (ECM) for bi-layer tablet production. The MODUL™ P with bi-layer ECM is the first press to enter the market that enables continuous bi-layer tableting on a small scale. It is the perfect solution to your bi-layer formulation development, clinical trial and other small-scale production needs.

Features

MODUL™ tablet press

  • Standard or Wash-off-Line ECM
  • Single and bi-layer capabilities in dust-tight and washable execution
  • Choice of different compression modes (force control, dual control and advanced dual control)
  • High sensitivity weight control for small tablets and those requiring low compression forces
  • Dual reject feature
  • Latest HMI for complete process control, including peripherals, for lights-out operation.

Benefits

  • Fast product changeover, improved productivity and a safe working environment.
  • Extended dwell time at pre- and main compression without any loss of linear speed.
  • Individual control of tablet hardness.
  • Flexible operation for small-medium. production and R&D operations with seamless scale-up.
  • Medium throughput of up to 244.800 tablets/h.

The MODUL™ P with bi-layer ECM enables continuous bi-layer tableting on a small scale. It is the machine of choice for bi-layer formulation development, clinical trial production and any other small-scale production needs.

Features & Benefits

The MODUL™ P with bi-layer ECM:

  • Enables continuous bi-layer tablet compression with a fully tooled turret.
  • Is able to produce over 80.000 bi-layer tablets/hour.
  • Can run with only one punch position in use, minimizing the tooling investment cost, as well as the powder quantities required for R&D.
  • Is available with mixed turret (10 B and 10 D stations).
  • Is available in WOL execution for working with highly potent substances.
