2.What Is Working Principle of Single Punch Tablet Press Machine?
Various parts of single punch tablet press machine work as a group for efficient tableting. Understanding the working principle behind the operation assists in repair and maintenance of single punch tablet press machine.
Some operational stages in working of these equipment are penned below:
STEP 1: Filling
First granules are loaded inside the hopper. After that, upper punch is moved in upward direction and bottom punch is moved in downwards to create a passageway in the die cavity. Feeder is moved over the top of die and granules go down to die from hopper due to gravitational force.
STEP 2: Compression
In compression stage, the feeder is moved away from die while the upper punch is moved down to die cavity with the help of cam track. The movement of upper punch in die provides necessary force for compression of granules into tablets.

10.What Factors Affect the Performance of Single Punch Tablet Press Machine?
Several factors impact the working efficiency of single-punch tablet press machines. Physical characteristics of powders as well as machine design have a role in the compression of tablets. Some important factors are:
Particle Size of Powders
Single punch tablet press machine require particles of optimum sizes. Large particles of powders result in denser compacts that are prone to fragmentation. Right sized particles for compression also decrease the weight variation in the tablets.
Adding excessive amount of lubricants during granulation can reduce the compressibility of the granules because it lowers the binding force between particles. Hence tablets produced by compression do not have considerable hardness.
Single punch tablet press machine need dry environment for optimal compression of tablets especially when handling moisture sensitive drugs.
However, surrounding with excessive dryness also impacts compression. Dry environment causes buildup of electric charges which results in accumulation of powders in die and punches.
High temperature also negatively affects the working efficiency of single punch tablet press machine. Compression of tablets usually results in fragmentation if temperature of environment is greater than 37°C.
Moreover, higher temperature leads to melting of powder ingredients thus leaving sticky residues on equipment which reduces efficiency of single punch tablet press machine.
Poor powder flow is often the reason of problems during compression. These powders traps the air molecules so adhere to die and punch. This results in weight instability of resultant tablets and poor output of single punch tablet press machine.
11.What are the Technical Problems and Solutions of Single Punch Tablet Press Machine?
Tableting process is not without the errors. To resolve the issues which arise in single punch tablet press machine, operators should have a complete and thorough knowledge of the tableting process.
