 The customer had always struggled to compress this formulation due to issues with sticking and overall product robustness. This meant having to run the press at low speeds to increase dwell time and manufacture a tablet in the specification. However, this also meant reducing tablet output and affecting production efficiency.

 I Holland recommended and supplied punch sets with the XDF (eXtended Dwell Flat) head as this would potentially have benefits against all of the issues the customer was experiencing.
