Tablet Coating Machine

A tablet coating machine is a machine that coats the surface of tablet dosage forms with a thin layer of coating material that is mostly dry. This gives coated tablets certain advantages over uncoated ones. It is a machine that puts a thin layer of coating material on the outside of the tablet. This is done to hide the drug’s taste, smell, and color.

  • To protect the drug both physically and chemically.
  • To stop drugs that break down when exposed to water (oxygen), light, or humidity.
  • To lessen the sour taste of some drugs, which can happen when the drug partially dissolves in the fluids in the mouth.
  • To make it easier to swallow and taste better by making the surface of the food smoother in the mouth.
  • To look good and be consistent, with a smooth surface and even distribution of color.
  • To stop fakes from being made by adding tracer compounds to the coating material.
  • A dry outer layer of coating material is put on the surface of a dosage form to give it certain advantages over uncoated paper. This is done so that highly potent compounds can be kept in the center of the tablet and not exposed to the people who handle the tablets.
