New to the U.S. market is a core coating module for Roeltgen’s FlexiTab® Tablet Press. PTI developed this module collaboratively with Germany-based Roeltgen as the company’s exclusive North American distributor and service provider for FlexiTab, a freely controllable, single-punch press for use in Galenics development and small batch production applications.

(Galenic formulation deals with the principles of preparing and compounding medicines in order to optimize their absorption.)

The core coating system is a modular enhancement that works by replacing one of the press’ three feeders with a new module that accurately places core tablets, already prefilled with a first layer of powder, into the center of the press die. Another layer of powder is then added, covering the core. The complete tablet is then compressed once or twice in a process similar to the pre- and main compression steps performed on rotary presses. Expanding the capabilities of the FlexiTab, this can manufacture single-layer, bi-layer, tri-layer, and externally lubricated tablets.
