Tamping pin TT

Cost efficient: Lab table unit for dosing and testing minimal quantities of powder (manually)


The tamping pin TT is used in the lab during the course of pharmaceutical development or to design dosing formats in production. Even minimum powder quantities (approx. 500 mg or more) are sufficient for testing. With the tamping pin, the fill quantity is dosed using a metering disk. The fill volume depends on the hole and on the height of the disk.

  • Fast determination of product attributes
  • Precise design of format parts
  • Binding definition of processes and their parameters
  • Cost effective production of sample caps
  • Reproducible, comparable trials
  • Can be retooled for tamping pins or dosing roller
  • Tamping pin TT – powder dosing for lab and galenics

    The tamping pin TT is a compact, hand-held lab device designed to fill capsules with pharmaceutical powders.
