XP 1

THE PERPETUATION OF A LEGEND

XP 1 – R&D Single Punch Press


The XP 1 research tablet press is the successor of the legendary EK 0. This single punch machine is specifically designed to permit initial feasibility, screening, and solid product characterization. The XP 1 permits very small material quantities to be utilized and characterized very quickly with a minimum of set-up and cleaning time. The XP 1 offers a proven, rugged, and portable design, which insures precision operation over the long term.

The complete separation of the product area from the mechanical area guarantees a GMP compliant working environment. The machine complies all valid FDA-regulations. KORSCH controls permit full compliance with 21 CFR Part 11.

Two Configurations

The XP 1 is offered in a “table-top”space efficient execution or optionally as a portable execution with a full stainless steel lower cabinet with locking caster base.

XP1 Detail

Flexible Operation: From Small to Larger Material Quantities

The single punch press is suitable for both small and larger press material quantities, in both cases with a minimum of set-up and cleaning time:

  • Feeder for 5 liters or for small material quantities (8 ml)
  • Different Material Hopper configurations from 5 liters to very small quantities

Use of Standard Press Tools

Use of standard TSM B/D or EU B/D and EK 0 tooling. An innovative tool adaptor permits the fast change of press tooling.
The XP 1 can work with a wide range of tablet formats, including microtablets to a maximum tablet diameter of 25 mm.

Full Accessibility and Eeasy Cleaning

The compression zone on the XP 1 is fully accessible.   The complete drive system for the press is mounted behind the back wall, so that the compression zone is clean and all components are easily removed and re-installed. The open design and the smooth surface as well as the separation of the product area from the technical area enable easy and fast cleaning.

Control with Operating Panel

Control with Operating Panel

A user friendly Siemens touch screen permits the adjustment of press speed and offers the real-time display of compression and ejection force.  
Calibrated hand wheel adjustments for upper punch insertion depth and filling depth permit the tablet weight, thickness, and hardness to be adjusted even while the machine is running.

Instrumentation and Data Analysis

A full instrumentation package allows precision measurement of upper/lower compression force, ejection and scrape off force and upper/lower punch displacement. Together with the KORSCH PharmaResearch, the XP 1 offers a comprehensive acquisition and analysis of press force and punch displacement.
