KORSCH introduces next-generation mid-range tablet press

X 3 Tablet Press incorporates production capabilities and versatility traditionally limited to large-scale production machines.

KORSCH is introducing a mid-range tablet press incorporating innovative features previously available only on large production machines.

The new X 3 Tablet Press is a single-sided rotary press that redefines this market segment, with flexible technology and a new approach to architectural and ergonomic design.

Suitable for product development, scale-up, clinical production, mid-range production and continuous manufacturing, the next-generation X 3 Tablet Press is available in two models. The X 3 SFP is a dedicated single-layer press capable of 266,400 tablets/hour, whereas the X 3 MFP offers flexible single-layer (266,400 tablets/hour) and bi-layer (133,200 tablets/hour) production capability.

The X 3 incorporates a flexible manufacturing experience atypical for its size, with an integrated electrical cabinet, torque drive, fully sealed design, and unsurpassed accessibility for cleaning, changeovers and maintenance.

Installation options include a conventional in-room layout, through-the-wall mounting, and a portable equipment platform. The X 3 offers a range of product containment configurations, including OEB 3, as well as OEB 4/5 with full wash-in-place and high-containment execution.

In addition, the X 3's exchangeable turret technology allows for an extremely fast transition between products, and the ability to produce a tablet of any size and shape.

For mid-range manufacturing, the X 3 offers a long filling length and large, variable-speed power feeder for precision die filling at extremely high speeds. For changeovers, superior compression zone access, smooth surfaces, and minimal fast change parts yield an expedited process for maximized machine uptime.

The unique KORSCH machine structure provides excellent visibility and unlimited access to the compression zone for streamlined changeover and turret exchange. It is a fully sealed machine with no heat transfer to the compression zone of the press, or to the compression room. This closed design also eliminates potential contamination in the machine base or electrical cabinet, and further expedites the changeover process.
