Introduction to Pharmaceutical Tablet Thickness Testing
Monitoring the thickness of tablets during the tablet compressing stage at regular intervals prevents any potential problems that may be caused by inconsistent tablet weights. This allows the tablet press operator to immediately correct the problems.
In tablet manufacturing, the active ingredient in the formulation comprises a major part of the tablet. By keeping the thickness of the tablet within its defined limits, the amount of active drug in the tablet is accurately dosed to the user.
