Improve Tablet Quality & Reduce Scrap – Better quality control of tooling will result in less waste (i.e. tablet rejects) due to poor tablet hardness, thickness, weight or shape. Closer attention to tool inspection results will result in a higher quality tool, which results in a better tablet quality.

Consistent Tablet Thickness – Matching Reports assist with matching upper and lower punches for optimum tablet thickness. This feature compares inspection working length measurements to determine proper tool sequence.

Save Labor Costs & Reduce Paperwork – Eliminate time consuming and costly tool inspection steps. Automatically input inspection results directly into the PC. Download into your PC entire tool databases provided on disk by the supplier. Produce management reports with the click of a mouse button.

Simplify Inspections & Minimize CGMP Responsibility – With every measurement you include in your inspection SOP, the FDA may require documentation of training, validation, calibration, procedures, etc. In other words, why open a can of worms? The TM-II system recommends that you ONLY INSPECT CRITICAL DIMENSIONS!

Protect Tooling Investment – Proper analysis of working length and cup depth prevent unnecessary discard of good tooling.

Better FDA Record Keeping – Track tablet production as well as tool status, discard, quarantine, etc. Enhanced preparation for FDA requirements. Analyze the causes of tool wear, the capacity of tools, the cost of tools, the status of tool inventory, etc. Eliminate paper / index card files and replace with a "State of the Art" database.

Easy Access to Drawing Library – On-screen viewing capability allows you to view drawings of Tools and Tablets with the click of a button.

Part 11 Compliance – Achieve CFR 21 Part 11 compliance when you combine the Validation Package and the upcoming database security of Pervasive SQL 8.5 with the built in security features of the Tool Management II application.

Reduce Maintenance Costs on Tablet Presses – Prevent the use of bad tooling that can cause press breakdowns. The Tool Management II no-nonsense inspection makes it easy to monitor tool quality.

Prevent Downtime – Forecast when tools will wear out and order them ahead of time instead of waiting until they go bad, ordering new tools and enduring costly delays while new tools are ordered.
