Romaco to present R&D tablet press at POWTECH

The KTP 1X single-stroke press from Romaco Kilian is set to be one of this year’s trade show highlights

American machine industry company Romaco is set to present its KTP 1X single-stroke R&D tablet press at POWTECH in Nuremberg, Germany.

The trade show will run from 27-29 September and is co-led by FACHPACK.

Romaco focuses on sustainability and cost efficiency as a key development priority. Targeted energy, space and material savings not only reduced production costs, but also the carbon footprint of the machines. To this end, the Romaco machines can be supplied with energy monitors and are also available in a carbon-neutral version.

Another example of more sustainability in the pharma and nutraceutical industries is the climate-friendly production of paper blisters with the Romaco Noack blister line technology. At the trade fair, Romaco will be presenting the new Kilian KTP 1X R&D tablet press which impresses with very low product consumption.

The KTP 1X is the newest generation of Romaco Kilian’s R&D tablet presses for laboratory use. This single-stroke press was designed as an all-in-one instrument for research and development activities. It is suitable for pressing mono-layer, bi-layer and triple-layer tablets as well as tab-in-tab formats. It achieves a maximum output of 1800 tablets per hour and compression forces of up to 80 kN. This versatile R&D press enables the various tableting parameters, such as compression force or the possible tableting speed, to be determined automatically.

The smart measurement system evaluates huge amounts of data in next to no time for this purpose. The KTP 1X is moreover capable of replicating any standard rotary press, making it much easier to conduct scale-up trials. In addition to the production of clinical samples, the technology also allows detailed troubleshooting and hence supports process optimisation. Thanks to the machine’s very good rigidity, the punch position in particular can now be measured more precisely.

This high measuring accuracy goes hand in hand with extremely low product consumption – so that the KTP 1X is not only cost-efficient but also sustainable. Only a few test series are required to obtain meaningful results because compression studies are highly automated. With its very small compaction area, Romaco Kilian’s KTP 1X has a small footprint and is quick and easy to clean.
