Pacific Tools is always excited to provide innovative solutions for any unique challenges faced by scientists. Its SRC 10i is the first Indian made fully instrumented R&D tablet press that addresses the huge tablet compression challenges faced by formulation scientists.
In early 2000, the formulation scientists were facing huge tablet compression challenges while scaling up the formulation and satisfying the needs of imported high speed / AWC based tablet presses getting newly installed then, in their commercial manufacturing set-ups.
During that period, scientists had to test/develop the granules using old technology tablet presses available in their labs. The major and important design factors like filling time pre and main compression dwell time / punch descending and ascending angle and tablet ejection velocity were neither proportional to high speed presses nor these data were being collected and stored in these table-top type R&D presses.
Understanding the gap, Pacific tools, a leading tablet tooling manufacturer launched SRC 10i, an ideal R&D tablet press. SRC 10i was a huge success as it is sturdy in construction, compact in design and proportionally matches all design factors of high speed press.
SRC 10i is the first Indian made fully instrumented R&D tablet press. All data captured in this press like pre / main compression force, ejection force / tablet ejection velocity and dwell time of individual punch helps the scientists to develop the blend and use the same formula in scale up batches.
Later, another model of SRC-17i-DL was launched to cater to Single / double layer tablet compression needs. Both models (SRC 10i & SRC 17i – D L) have choices of hoppers with special augurs, different designs of force feeders (for poor flow blend, MUPS formulation) and gravity feeders. Pacific is always excited to provide innovative solutions for any unique challenges faced by scientists.
Pacific has installed over 200 fully instrumented compression machines across R&D labs India and many of its customers use a battery of presses in the same facility. The quality, the robust construction, and user-friendly software are the highlights.
As Make in India is the order of the day, Pacific is planning to launch few unique models of high speed tablet presses in early 2023.
