Checking tablets, even under containment conditions

| By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey

The new Checkmaster CM-X (photo) tests tablets randomly, and in compliance with OEB4 containment conditions, in interaction with this company’s F10i, F20i and F30i tablet presses from the new i Series. The Checkmaster CM-X tests the produced tablets for weight, diameter, thickness and strength/hardness. The equipment thus supplements the range of tablet test devices already available. With the i Series’ ergonomic human machine interface (HMI), the Checkmaster CM-X is easy to operate while minimizing the risk of errors, because manual data entry is no longer required. — Fette Compacting, Schwarzenbek, Germany
