KTP 720X Tablet Press

The KTP 720X is a reliable, versatile, high speed pharma tableting machine. It has been optimised to achieve the maximum output with minimum wear.

It is available in three configurations:

  • Mono-layer tablet production
  • Bi-layer tablet production
  • Core tablets (Tab-inTab/Bulls Eyes/Multi-Purpose)
  • any combination of the above

Benefits of KTP 720X


  • Effective cooling of the process area to below 30 °C – ideal for processing temperature sensitive formulations such as Ibuprofen
  • Special compression rollers, bolts and bearings to ensure lowest possible friction
  • Efficient cooling of the torque drive and the V-ring seal (for the die table)


  • Up to 1,000,000 tabs/h as mono machine
  • Up to 140,000 tabs/h as core machine
  • Excellent performance with challenging high volume products such as Metformin and Amlodipin
  • Quick product and format changes: tablet chute and fill shoe can be swung out – no tedious  readjustments
  • Few product contact parts: minimal cleaning effort
  • Special core positioning with camera for Tab-in-Tab tablets
  • Tool-less format change


  • Optimal hygienic design
  • Hermetical separation between compaction and service area
  • Patented closed punch bellows to prevent tablet contamination

Technical Highlights

  • GAMP conforming automation, qualification and validation
  • Self-explanatory operating, control and regulating system
  • Patented wear-free brake magnets
  • Fast turret exchange via integrated slide-out system
  • Interchangeable, long-life pressure rollers
  • Individual rejection of bad tablets / sampling of tablets
  • Suitable for all kinds of granulates – even for poorly flowing products
