For over fifteen years, O’Hara Technologies has been perfecting our Fastcoat™ Continuous tablet coating technology, to the point where we are the global leader in pharmaceutical continuous tablet coating. Our continuous coaters significantly shorten production cycle times and improve productivity, while using less GMP floor space and utilities than traditional batch coaters.
The nature of continuous coating requires a shallower tablet bed, which leads to less product damage, and allows tablets to pass under the anti-bearding spray nozzles at a higher frequency. As a result, our customers see markedly improved coating uniformity, often at significantly lower weight gains than traditional batch coating. Our patented technology allows for a wide range of production capacities; we offer equipment designed for 75, 500 and 1200 kilograms per hour nominal throughput rates. O’Hara’s Zero Waste recipe control system allows for every tablet to be coated to your specification, from the first to the last. The coater can also be used as a fully automated batch coater, complete with automatically loading, coating and unloading tablets, giving you the ultimate versatility.
At last, your pilot, scale-up and production processes can finally be done in one machine, now that your batch size is now determined by time instead of the physical size of the coating pan. Welcome to the future of coating.
