GEA’s R-series rotary tablet presses allow for extremely short cleaning, format changeover times and tool-free disassembly and reassembly of all removable parts. The R55 is an exceptionally versatile industrial rotary press for a wide range of powder product processing applications, including nuclear fuel pellets, hard metals, catalysts, automotive parts, batteries and confectionery, states the firm. The rotary press can be supplied with a number of optional features to improve and expedite the tablet production process and provide higher levels of control.

The company’s Hold-Up/Hold-Down system, in combination with an optimised die design, prevents tablet lamination or capping, and features such as die wall and punch face lubrication are designed to optimise tablet ejection, opines the firm. In addition, proprietary punch holders with bearings rolling on cams mean that ejection forces up to 10 kN can be tolerated. Steel, carbide and ceramic compression tools can be supplied as standard, but the customer is free to use a third-party source. GEA will provide the necessary tool drawings with the press.
