In the pharmaceutical production process, the mould for tableting plays a vital role in the quality of the tablet. For example, the hole of the die becomes large, causing the unevenness of the punching filler to cause the difference in the weight of the tablet to not conform to the regulations or to produce a split; First, directly affect the weight difference and hardness of the tablet to cause the lobes, or affect the friability; the punch has a curling edge or the punch is not flat, affecting the flaking, causing the lobes, sticking and so on. Therefore, in daily management, we must pay attention to the daily maintenance, maintenance and storage of the powder tablet press mould to ensure the quality of our tablets.
