Why do you need TPC?
The TPC/TPS system simplifies operator training, as the operators will need to be trained on only one control system for all your machines. Supervisory Node can optionally monitor all tablet presses on a production floor. Complete Validation Service is available.

On this screen, you can see an example of a typical control recipe with dosing cam adjustment, rejection, alarm and shutdown limits expressed as a percent deviation from the target compression force. For a given tablet thickness, compression force is proportional to tablet weight in the vicinity of the target.
Histogram of Punch Performance
Irregularities in punch tolerances become visible on a bar histogram where each bar corresponds to peak force produced by each punch. As the new revolution arrives, the bar lengths are adjusted. If you see that a particular bar persists in being taller or smaller than the rest, it means that you have a long or short punch.
