The development of tablet press is slow in China. In 1949, China had the first imitated tablet press. In 21st century, with the deepening of the GMP certification, ZP series rotary tablet presses appeared: ZP35A produced by Shanghai, ZP35D produced by our company, etc. With the improvement of manufacturing technology level and automatic control technology as well as different needs of tablet press manufacturers, a variety of tablet presses for special purposes appeared one after another. China's tablet press entered a new period of rapid development.(Reported by China pharmaceutical machinery net.)
In Europe and the United States, tablet press has a nearly hundred years of history. In 1949, the Tianxiang Huaji Ironworks in Shanghai imitated the British 33 tablet press. In 1960, they successfully designed and manufactured 60-30 tablet press, which has the function of automatic rotation and tablet pressing. In the same year, ZP33 and ZP19 tablet press were designed and manufactured.
In 1980, ZP-21w tablet press was designed and manufactured by Shanghai Pharmaceutical Machinery Factory, which reached the advanced level in the early 1980s. In 1997, our company developed ZP100 series rotary tablet press, GZPK100 series high-speed rotary tablet press.
With the improvement of manufacturing technology level and automatic control technology and because of various special needs of manufacturers, various kinds of tablet presses for special purposes have appeared successively. For example, ZP5 rotary tablet press is used in the laboratories. Dry powder rotary tablet press is used for dry powder pressing. ZPYG51 series rotary tablet press is used for explosive powder tablets.
