The S 710 Prime tablet press from Romaco Kilian is an economical solution for compressing mono-layer and bi-layer tablets. This high-performance, double-sided rotary press in proven Kilian quality impresses with high availability.

The new S 710 Prime double-sided rotary press complements Romaco Kilian’s portfolio of high-productivity tablet presses for both mono-layer and bi-layer mode. The technology is also suitable for compressing effervescent tablets and is accordingly ready to connect to a packaging line. The Kilian Prime family of tablet presses are used by pharmaceutical, food and chemical manufacturers around the world. With a maximum output of 1,020,000 tablets in an hour, the Kilian S 710 Prime is classed as a high-speed press.

According to the company’s press release, this economical solution from Romaco Kilian convinces with excellent value for money and high overall equipment effectiveness (OEE). Availability, performance and quality were top priorities when Kilian developed the S 710 Prime. Fast product changes, short cleaning times and long maintenance intervals ensure optimal availability and virtually no downtime. In particular, the hermetic separation between the compaction and “grey” areas speeds up cleaning of the tablet press after every batch. Owing to the interchangeable die-table, the Kilian S 710 Prime is also very versatile.

High product quality and performance

Kilian’s proven fill shoe design and asymmetrical hopper improve the product flow, which is a big advantage where powders with poor flow properties are concerned. Furthermore, the Kilian S 710 Prime’s brake magnet technology restricts the relative standard deviation during tableting to a minimum, so that consistently high product quality is guaranteed. The coated tablet chute, which is inclined 40 degrees, allows tablets to be transported without any problems even at very high processing speeds or with critical tablet geometries. The universal tablet scraper can be utilized for any tablet format. The process temperatures were reduced and ideal production conditions created by repositioning the fill shoe drive and gear outside the compaction area.

Durable pressure rollers and components result in lower costs for maintenance of the Kilian S 710 Prime. Remote Assist, Romaco’s online support system, means support requests can be processed digitally in real time. Error messages can be identified and dealt with promptly using Call4Service, smart glasses or the status app. And thanks to Kilian’s ramp-up support, the newly created production capacity can be fully exploited without any undue delay.

Kilian enables more sustainability

Romaco Kilian’s tablet presses are designed to make a systematic contribution to minimizing product loss during tableting. The combination of precision-manufactured die-tables with hardly any radial run-out and magnetic product scrapers enables more sustainable production. Kilian also supports the careful use of natural resources with robust and durable components. At the same time, less effort is necessary for cleaning because the Kilian S 710 Prime has fewer product-contacted parts. That saves time and money, reduces energy consumption and eases the burden on the environment.

The S 710 Prime double-sided rotary press can be seen at the Romaco Kilian GmbH facility in Cologne, Germany.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
