Custom Tablet Processing Station, 1998

Customer was a pharmaceutical packaging company. This unit has a rolling wheel which is dipped in a liquid gel. The gel is heated to 140°F. Tablets are indexed into position by the index wheel, then have gel rolled onto them to form one or more absorption-retarding stripes. Tablets roll when contacting the wheel, and also when the index wheel rotates. Hot air at a controlled temperature is forced over the tablets on the back half of the wheel, to accelerate cure. Temperatures, speeds and dwell times are set by thumbwheel switches and heater controls on the front panel.
