Increased Efficiency for Compression Setup and Startup Processes
Alvarado Torrech, Liza
This research project is focused in the Increased Efficiency for Compression Setup and Startup Processes. The machine compressors are the Table Press 3200i, it is a double sided rotary press used to produce mono and bi-layer tablets. Bilayer is a structure, such as a film or membrane, consisting of two molecular layers. Monolayer a film or layer of one molecule thin . In order to improve the extensive downtime for setup and startup of the compression machine, also increasing capacity for new product demand, the DMAIC methodology was used. This research aims to increase capacity for new product demand and reduce downtimes in setup and startup in the compression process. Key Terms – Bilayer Tablet, DMAIC, Fette Compacting, Granulation, Mono Layer Tablet, Tablet Compressing.
