In the pharmaceuticals industry, the RoTab Bilayer has been used successfully for years in the development of mono- and bi-layer tablets, in which the tablet press concerned is the most compact, full-value, bi-layer, rotary press on the market offering comprehensive R&D and production functionality. The mobile, compact unit weighs a mere 1,300 kg. The RoTab Bilayer is thus frequently used for the production of small- to medium-sized batches such as those needed for clinical trials.
Miniaturized production machine concept
The miniaturized production machine concept enables a smooth and fully transparent scale-up to be conducted. All kind of punch formats can be used. A complete form part change can be conducted in under 45 minutes. The RoTab Bilayer is also designed for operation with only one occupied punch station. The sampling for the 1st layer is possible at the push of a button during production. Anti-cross-contamination minimizes a “mixing” of the layers thanks to two suction bars for the 1st and 2nd layers with separate special suction units.
