Romaco Kilian KTP 420X tablet press

Romaco Kilian’s KTP 420X rotary press features a convincing design concept: cool, fast & clean. “Cool” describes all measures which keep the temperature in the process area below 30°C. The KTP series is consequently ideal for processing temperature sensitive medications such as Metformin or Ibuprofen. Special compression rollers, bolts and bearings reduce mechanical friction to a minimum. At the same time, the efficient cooling of the bottom die-table seal and the torque drive avoids unwanted heat. “Fast” stands for the optimised retooling and cleaning times of the rotary press. The number of product-contacted format parts has been systematically reduced and access to the various components is now easier than ever. With a maximum output of 360,000 tablets per hour, the Kilian KTP 420X can be unequivocally described as a high speed press.

“Clean” refers to the hygienic design, which improves product quality and process reliability. The strict separation between the compaction and service areas prevents tablet dust from entering the machine compartment during the production process. The patented bellows protect the tablets from contamination with lubricants during compression. The excellent OEE (overall equipment effectiveness) and TCO (total cost of ownership) values are key characteristics of Romaco Kilian’s KTP 420X. The HMI panels of this tablet press incorporate swipe navigation inspired by modern smartphones, underlining yet again exactly how easy it is to operate the KTP series.

On show at Andina Pack in Bogotá (Colombia) from November 7 to 10, 2017 (Pavilion 04, Level 01, Booth 418A).
