The R55 is a robust, exceptionally versatile industrial rotary press for single-layer tablet and component production. From nuclear fuel pellets, hard metals and batteries to confectionery - anything is possible! GEA’s R-series rotary tablet presses allow for extremely short cleaning and format changeover times and the tool-free disassembly and reassembly of all removable parts.
Available with a number of optional features to improve and expedite the tablet production process and provide higher levels of control, the R55 is capable of outputting more than 38,000 products per hour at a maximum compression force of 130 kN. In addition, the unique-to-GEA air compensator ensures both constant density compression and tablet thickness.
Providing weight control at pre-compression, extended dwell times for complex formulations, higher yields, cost savings and faster set-up, the air compensator enables you to control two basic quality attributes instead of one.
