Tablet Press Efficiency At Batch Sizes

Rotary Tablet Press Efficiency Per Batch Size

A big factor in choosing your Rotary Tablet Press will be the batch sizes you intend to produce with it.

While it might seem that the machine with the most output should finish every batch size in first, the table below demonstrates that is not the case.

The larger the machine the more parts there are to clean and the higher the labour costs.

As you can see Rotary Tablet Presses like the RTP 17 & 10i are incredibly efficient for small batches under and up to 50,000 tablets.

If you are in the contract manufacturing business this could give your business an edge.

Amazon sellers dominate areas of the supplement market and they are looking to buy in small batches regularly to avoid Amazon storage fees.

Manufacturers who are able to accept the small batch orders of under 50,000 tablets and profit have an edge over manufacturers with higher MOQ’s.

A number of these Amazon sellers will grow to have the buying power of your ideal customer, but they will rarely want to order over 50,000 tablets to start with.

By helping them early on you will not just build a long term relationship, but you will have profited from their custom along the way.

Multiple Station Tablet Rotary Press

Multiple Station Tablet Rotary Press

There are 2 types of tablet presses: single-punch and rotary tablet presses. Most high speed tablet presses take the form of a rotating turret that holds any number of punches and dies. As they rotate around the turret, the punches come into contact with cams which control the vertical position of each punch. Tablets produced by a rotary tablet press are compressed into uniform size, shape and weight making it the preferred machine for large-scale manufacture as it also produces more tablets than single punch machines.
