In pharma machineries for Tablet Counting, The best machine for a specific requirement of customers depends on many factors such as production volume, count and product matrix, product durability, cost, validation, delivery options, and others. There are several options for accurately counting moderate to high volumes of pharmaceutical products such as various types of tablets, capsules, and gel caps. Each has its advantages, disadvantages, and most appropriate applications. They can be categorized according to the physical delivery system and the electronic counting or verification systems.
There are various types of pharmaceutical machines available for Tablet Counting as per its functionality, cost and technology. Several inspection or electronic counting methods have been used with slat fillers, including optical sensors, vision systems, empty-cavity detection systems, and a new high-speed scanning technology that counts tablets in multiple lanes after they fall from the slats. Rotary slat fillers use an optical detector called a frame sensor that time the duration of a passing object. If the time recorded matches the programmed range of possible readings that can be caused by a passing tablet, it is considered a count. The machine continues to run until the count in all of the bottles is satisfied. If one bottle lags behind the others in the count, the others wait until the count for that one has been satisfied. This process reduces the number of rejected containers, but also slows the process and reduces production volume. Electronic counters are the top choice for speed requirements. They can be grouped together to double the output.
