Fully Automated Rotary Tablet Press
The MiniPress II Fully Automated Rotary Tablet Press is a robust versatile machine, which is designed to meet the strict GMP requirements. It is an ideal solution for R&D, small batch production and above all for Galenic Formulation Development, feasibility studies and for Preparation of Master Manufacturing Procedures. A gravity Feeder as well as a rotary Force Feeder with an adjustable speed are included as standard.
Thank the Force Feed adaptability; the MiniPress II Fully Automated Rotary Tablet Press can handle even powders and granules of difficult flow characteristics. The adjustment of the production parameters (e.g. Flow rate of powder, filling depth, and tablet thickness) can be easily performed by the operator. The pre-compression force can reach up to 20 KN (2Ton). The main compression force can reach up to 60 KN (6Ton) at the final compression stage. An overload safety system is also integrated.
The MiniPress II Fully Automated Rotary Tablet Press is used as a table top machine. The table is not included in the standard supply scope. Thank the smart design of the MiniPress II Fully Automated Rotary Tablet Press, you can:
- Choose the tooling at order: Single Tooling or Multi-Tooling.
- Use a single phase power supply and choose the electric power supply of your country.
- Easily and quickly mount/dismount the Punch-Die- set.
- Operate the machine and clean it quickly.
Contact parts of the Mini-Press II – Rotary Tablet Press are made of L316 stainless steel, while the turret and cam tracks are ELNP coated to give protection against wear and tear. Optional L316 Stainless Steel Turret is also available.
All contact parts are made of GMP Compliant materials and can be sterilized in accordance with GMP.
