Automatic Tableting Machine: Designing, Construction and Starting Up

The design, installation, and start-up of an automatic machine to create 3 600 Paradichlorobenzene deodorant pills per hour was requested by a Mexican manufacturing plant whose main product is deodorant tablets for domestic and commercial usage (PDB). The density of the tablets should be no less than 1 400 [kg/m3], with a maximum weight variation of 4.5 percent. It was important to monitor energy and applied forces during the compaction of granulated PDB in order to construct the machine. The experimental results can be used to calculate the amount of power required to achieve the target density in PDB tablets. Electro-pneumatic and electro-hydraulic technology are used in the tableting machine to control movement and compaction force.
