EP-1 Overview

The single punch eccentric tablet press EP-1 can manufacture tablets and odd shaped products with a diameter of up to 20mm. It operates automatically i.e. the tablets are filled, pressed and ejected continously. The compression force of up to 3 tons and the filling depth of up to 15mm are easily adjusted.

One advantage is its small footprint of 425 x 386 mm (length x width) and a height of 640 mm so it can easly sit on a desktop or workbench. The maximum throughput is 4.000 tablets per hour, so it is ideal for development of tablets and small batch production. All components are either covered with hard chrome, or made of stainless steel AISI 316 or acrylic glass for the front door.

The EP-1 is compliant to GMP and safety regulations.
