Main Benefits

  • Stability and Noise Reduction Through Robust Four-Pillar Design: This design minimizes vibrations during operation, leading to a quieter working environment and enhanced stability of the machine. This results in more precise tablet formation and extends the Stokes Model 370’s lifespan.

  • Simplification of Spare Parts Inventory with Common Components: By using the same parts in both the pre-compression and final compression stages, this reduces the need for a large inventory of spare parts. It simplifies maintenance and reduces costs associated with stocking and replacing different parts.

  • Adjustable Servo Motors for Lower Rolls and Fill Cams: The use of adjustable servo motors allows for precise control over the fill depth, accommodating up to 13 mm. This versatility guarantees optimal tablet weight and density, catering to different tablet specifications and enhancing product quality.

  • Adjustable Servo Motors for Lower Rolls and Fill Cams: The use of adjustable servo motors allows for precise control over the fill depth, accommodating up to 13 mm. This versatility guarantees optimal tablet weight and density, catering to different tablet specifications and enhancing product quality.

  • Prevention of Oil Leakage in Pressure Rolls with Sealed Roller Bearings: The sealed bearings prevent oil leakage, maintaining the cleanliness of the machine and the production area. This leads to reduced maintenance, lower risk of contamination, and improved machine efficiency.

  • Efficient Material Transportation with a Mechanical Feeder: The mechanical feeder enhances production by consistently and efficiently moving material into the die. This results in a steady flow of material, reducing downtime and increasing overall production efficiency.

  • Cleanliness Maintained with Integrated Die Table Scraper and Dual Dust Collection System: This makes a clean production environment certain by effectively removing excess powder and minimizing dust. It helps in maintaining product quality and reduces cleaning time, contributing to a more hygienic manufacturing process.

  • Extended Lifespan of Tooling and Cams with Automatic Punch Lubrication System: Regular and precise lubrication of the tooling and cams reduces wear and tear, significantly extending their lifespan. This results in fewer replacements, lower costs, and consistent tablet quality over time.

  • Reduced Powder Waste and Enhanced Material Flow with a Thoughtfully Designed Hopper: The hopper’s design, featuring a butterfly valve, minimizes powder waste and optimizes the flow of material. This leads to more efficient production and reduced material costs.

  • Improved Visibility and Safe Operation with OSHA-Approved Safety Interlocks: The machine’s design includes lighting in both upper and lower sections for better visibility, which enhances operational safety and accuracy. The inclusion of OSHA-approved safety interlocks ensures the machine is operated securely, protecting the operators and meeting safety regulations.
