Reducing costs while maintaining or increasing output and efficiency has become a common mandate across the tableting industry. Although this directive can seem daunting, one of the easiest and most impactful ways to reduce costs is to create and follow proper maintenance procedures for tablet presses and tablet compression tooling. Not only can you reduce costs, you can increase efficiency and production yields while maintaining tablet quality.

Maintenance procedures should cover proper cleaning and handling, setting up an inspection process, and maintaining your tooling and tablet press.
