It offers pharmaceutical manufacturers an ideal start to continuous oral solid dosage (OSD) production. The machine combines charging, dosing of several ingredients and blending with granulation, drying and discharging in one unit. In contrast to continual mass flow, the Xelum R&D doses excipients and active ingredients as a discrete mass. This way, customers can dose even smallest amounts of APIs of less than one percent.
