Tablet sorting for the
pharmaceutical industry

Tablet Checker – KA

For decades, the inspection or checking of tablets has been an important production step for verifying and ensuring process quality. The tablets can be checked for gaps, cracks, bending, breakage and contamination, and, of course, their thickness can be verified.

The L.B. Bohle KA checker is the perfect system for mechanical checking of thickness of tablets or capsules.

Sorting with the L.B. Bohle
Tablet Checker

The KA checker is used for the mechanical checking of the thickness of sugar-coated or film-coated pills, capsules or tablets. For process monitoring, the feeding hopper is filled with tablets to be tested. From there, a vibration system moves the tablets to the pairs of rotating sorting discs where they are sorted by consistency.

In process monitoring, the entire process as well as thickness can be verfied via a touch panel. The thickness measurement can be set with a tolerance of
± 0.1mm.

Sorting into the three tablet groups at a glance

  1. Tablets that are too thick will be moved into a tray above the ejector plate
  2. Tablets that are too thin will be moved into a tray below the middle ejector plate
  3. Accepted tablets that are located between the upper and middle ejector plates: will be moved to the production area
