Tablet Hardness Tester


Tablet hardness testing, is a laboratory technique used by the pharmaceutical industry to determine the breaking point and structural integrity of a tablet and find out how it changes “under conditions of storage, transportation, packaging and handling before usage” The breaking point of a tablet is based on its shape.

Project Scope

We designed and developed the product for a leading manufacturer and exporter of pharmaceutical Tablet physical testing instruments including Conceptualization, Detailed engineering, Development of Prototypes, Design Validation, Manufacturing Drawings Release and Development of Parts.

Product Features

Tablet Hardness Tester used to measure tablet weight, width, thickness, diameter and hardness. Tablet hardness tester is both USP and EP compliant and offers excellent flexibility and configurability. This robust design removes the need for a thickness gauge, eliminating redundant calibrations and reducing overall testing cost. The device allows detailed method programming without the need for PC software with the large bright LCD interface and user-friendly input keys and menus. Small footprint ideal for laboratories with limited bench space, compact and lightweight design is well suited for portability and use in a production setting. Optional built in printed with an optional 40 column dot matrix built in printer. Sample throughput is approximately 6-10 samples per minute. No adjustments required for the test jaws that are designed to suit all tablet shapes and sizes with a unique grooved design for proper alignment of each tablet before testing. “Alert” will display if the tablet or sample is above the defined hardness range with the option to continue or abort test.
