For customers who want additional time savings and reduction of changeover time processing, Watson provides complete drum-to-hopper blends for chewable tablets. EZ-Press™ Drum-To-Hopper (DTH) Blends are designed specifically to meet your product goals and Supplement Facts panel. Watson creates a custom blend of vitamins, minerals, and Chewable Tablet Starter Base to create a complete DTH blend that is ready for tableting. This is a great option for SKUs with lower volume runs or for seasonal product line extensions and when internal processing on in-house equipment is otherwise not cost effective.
Both the Chewable Tablet Starter Bases and DTH blends in the EZ-Press™ line are designed to produce tablets that have minimal friability, uniform load, and desirable organoleptic qualities. Ideal hardness is critical as tablets must resist breakage, yet not be too hard as to negatively impact bite and chew characteristics. Breakdown and dissolution of tablets are also key control parameters.
