Recipe Example

On this screen, you can see an example of a typical control recipe with dosing cam adjustment, rejection, alarm and shutdown limits expressed as a percent deviation from the target compression force. For a given tablet thickness, compression force is proportional to tablet weight in  the vicinity of the target.


Histogram of Punch Performance

Irregularities in punch tolerances become visible on a bar histogram where each bar corresponds to peak force produced by each punch. As the new revolution arrives, the bar lengths are adjusted. If you see that a particular bar persists in being taller or smaller than the rest, it means that you have a long or short punch.
