Tablet specification issues can take many forms and below we look at three of the most common problems along with their possible solutions. There are many other challenges that may need to be addressed so please get in touch with us if yours is not covered here.
Tablet Weight Variation
Tablet weight is obviously an important aspect in tablet manufacture as it controls the dosage of the final product. This is especially critical within the pharmaceutical industry. Tablet weight variation is defined as inconsistent tablet weight or mass across samples from within a batch.
Many tablets are designed to be broken into smaller dosages with functional breaklines. When they break unevenly the dose can be incorrectly controlled. Again this is particularly important in the pharmaceutical industry where dosage is critical.

Customer Experience - Design Is Key
The design of a tablet is crucial to a well-made end product. Without considering basic but important design processes like shape, profile and breakline, the tablet will simply not work. Professional tooling designers can take all these variables into account during the initial design and concept stage, resulting in an easily manufactured quality tablet.
Many billions of tablets need to be produced quickly and efficiently, the requirement for tablet manufacturers to look at design specifications prior to processing should be a primary consideration.
