Preventive maintenance (PM) is something that pharmaceutical manufacturers should employ on a regular basis, though it remains somewhat alarming to see how many wait until they experience an “uh-oh” moment before acting. Tablet-press manufacturers can offer varying guideposts for the timing of such PM intervals, but there are some easy signals to remain cognizant of that should prompt proactive behavior. A few of these include odd noises, erratic tablet weights, and premature wear on contact parts such as cams and compression rolls. Today’s presses can produce tablets at an astounding rate, with extraordinary accuracy, but only when they are looked after in meticulous fashion. In this article, Matt Bundenthal of Fette Compacting America describes components of a PM program.
