Slat fillers and slats
 
Q: Do I need a different set of slats for each drug product I run on my slat filler?
 
 
imageSome companies operating slat fillers try to use one set of slats for many different products, but slats should generally be product specific. Just as optimal equipment performance requires proper maintenance, achieving the best possible results on your slat filler requires proper change parts. This applies whether you are a CMO manufacturing many different drug products on the same packaging line or a brand owner.

Tooling: Facts versus Fiction
 
Preventing tablet capping
 
Q: How do we determine the cause of tablet capping during production and prevent it from occurring?
 
A: Robert Sedlock, Natoli Engineering, says:
 
imageThe term capping in tablet manufacturing refers to a tablet failure, a break across the horizontal plane, that you find when performing a breaking force or friability test. Many factors can contribute to capping, including a formulation's blend characteristics, the material's deformation properties, and the mechanical configuration of the tablet press and tooling.

Overcoming the challenges of continuous solid oral dosage manufacturing
 
Fritz-Martin Scholz, Bosch Packaging Technology
 
Increasingly, pharmaceutical production plants must be efficient and user friendly. They must also meet industry demand for shorter development times with minimal active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) usage and direct transfer from development to production without scale-up, as well as flexible batch sizes and integrated quality monitoring. This article discusses how continuous manufacturing technologies can help drug product manufacturers meet these requirements.
 
Solid oral dosage forms (SODFs), including tablets, capsules, and sachets, make up roughly 60 percent of the total pharmaceutical products market. Despite the development of new liquid biologics and parenteral medications, SODFs will continue to play an important role in the global pharmaceutical market in the future.
 
Increasing pressure to reduce costs and improve product quality is driving companies to adopt more efficient, modular, and flexible manufacturing processes. The trend toward highly potent active ingredients and more personalized drug products will also influence production and process requirements, leading to smaller and more flexible production quantities with the shortest possible time to market.
 
To learn more about this topic, you can read the article "Overcoming the challenges of continuous solid oral dosage manufacturing." You can also find articles under "Continuous manufacturing" in Tablets & Capsules' Article Archive.
