Bi-Layer Tablet Press Offers Complete Segregation of Materials

The OYSTAR USA Process Division introduces the OYSTAR Manesty Xpress 700 Tablet Press with a bi-layer production option. The Xpress 700 is an easy-to-use, double-sided press that is designed to facilitate the flexible production of small, medium and large batch sizes. The stepped cabinet design enables easy access to the upper and lower compression zones for a fast, tool-free turret exchange system. Its compact footprint with integrated electrical and pneumatic controls minimizes the use of floor space and installation work.

The Xpress 700 features automatic weight control of each tablet layer. Precise and independent monitoring of each layer is controlled through a unique algorithm. It also allows for complete segregation of materials for a clearly defined demarcation line between layers, while special jets and scrapers are used to prevent cross-contamination between layers.

The tablet parameters are set via the user-friendly mpower integrated control technology system, which controls and powers the adjustment of the main press controls and acts as the means of communication with ancillary equipment. The conversion of the Xpress 700 from a single layer to a bi-layer version can be done within one hour through a retrofit conversion kit.
