Tableting is the process of compacting granulated materials in a press into predefined shapes and sizes specific to end use applications. These applications typically involve dispersion of the tablet in a matrix such as water, waste chemicals or soil. Tableting often requires in-depth preparation of materials such as compaction granulation and blending to ensure proper functionality of the final product. If raw materials are not prepared properly, it can result in a faulty product that doesn’t meet the intended dissolution profile, end use application or damaged tablets from storage or transport.
