Choosing the right machine involves carefully evaluating these factors to find equipment that not only meets your current production requirements, but also has the ability to adapt to the future growth of your company.

The use of a pill dust cleaner becomes essential in any capsule and pressed pill manufacturing process to ensure the quality and integrity of the final product. During the production of pills, it is common to generate waste and dust that can adhere to the surface of the capsules or pills. This residue not only affects the appearance of the final product, but can also compromise its quality and accuracy in terms of dosing.

The addition of a dust cleaner is designed to address this problem effectively. Compatible with both capsules and pressed tablets, these machines use advanced vacuum suction systems to remove residual powder. This process not only cleans the final product, but also allows the powder to be recovered for reuse, pressing it again and thus maximizing the efficiency of the material.

Using a dust cleaner is crucial to maintaining hygiene and quality standards in pharmaceutical production. By removing residual powder, cross-contamination is avoided, dosage consistency is ensured, and product presentation is improved. This additional step in the production process reflects a commitment to product excellence and safety, fundamental aspects in the pharmaceutical industry.

The implementation of a pill or capsule counting machine becomes an essential requirement after the tablet or capsule production process. This need arises in the packaging and dosing phase, where it is crucial to ensure a precise number of units per container, whether cans or boxes, typically in batches of 30 units or any other specific quantity required.

The main advantage of using these machines is the elimination of manual counting, a process that is not only time-consuming but also subject to human error. Depending on your production needs and the scale of your operation, you can choose between semi-automated or fully automated solutions. Semi-automatic machines are suitable for smaller productions or for companies looking for flexibility with a lower initial investment.

Uniformity in particle size of powder components is crucial to ensure the quality and appearance of pressed tablets. This is where crushers and sifters come into play, essential tools in the process of preparing the components before mixing them. These machines ensure that all powder components pass through a 120 points per inch mesh (or any other required specification), thus achieving a uniform granulometry consistency.

This homogeneity is essential, since differences in grain size can negatively affect the final appearance of the tablet, manifesting itself in visible irregularities and affecting the perception of quality. Some components may have naturally diverse particle sizes, which without proper crushing and sieving, could result in uneven distribution within the pressed tablet.

Therefore, the implementation of a crusher or sifter before the mixing process not only improves the aesthetics of the tablets but also contributes to uniformity in their composition and dissolution, factors that are essential to maintain quality standards. and effectiveness of the final product.
