Laser marking and alternative wavelengths
 
Q: How can we optimize our laser marker's throughput to meet production goals?
 
 
imageFor many people, the lightsabers in Star Wars films are their first introduction to lasers. Despite the many liberties the films' creators take with the physical principles of lasers, lightsabers can help to shed light on laser marking for oral solid dosage formulations (OSDFs). For example, a green or blue lightsaber always outperforms a red one, even if the red one has extra blades. This makes sense because green lasers have a higher frequency and carry more energy than red lasers.

OEM and aftermarket parts for tablet presses
 
Q: Can non-OEM aftermarket parts meet the same quality standards as OEM replacement parts?
 
A: Stephen Natoli, Natoli Engineering, says:
 
imageMany aftermarket parts manufacturers have produced and sold replacement parts for decades, so they have experience in producing quality parts, even for tablet press models that an OEM no longer produces or supports. Pharmaceutical companies rely on these parts for older machines to produce specific drug products and/or products with narrow profit margins for which upgrading to the latest instrumented tablet press isn't a viable option. In these cases, aftermarket parts manufacturers may stock or can reverse engineer and provide a part when necessary.
