  • Offer Profile
  • Innovation, quality and reliability are the foundations on which our traditional family company was built. Since its inception in 1960, we have continued to write new chapters in the history of tabletting tools and successfully established the “NOTTER TABLETTING TOOLS” brand within the pharmaceuticals and foodstuffs industry.

    A key factor in the success of our tabletting tools is their consistent precision and exceptional service life. These two features made them stand out from the very beginning, and these core values now have an increasingly important role to play given the current trend towards ever-increasing production volumes and cost minimisation.

      • Single Tip and Snap-Tab Tools

      • In contrast to more conventional solutions, NOTTER tabletting tools are designed to deliver superior precision at all times. It is this level of consistency that provides the basis for efficient operations and end-products of exceptional quality. Our patented Snap-Tab® tool is the perfect choice for tablets with designated breaklines.
      • Creative Tools

      • Creative tools by NOTTER are designed to deliver the ultimate in uniqueness. Whether coffee beans, miniature bears or toy cars – almost anything is possible with a little imagination.

        Feel free to get in touch with NOTTER for further inspiration. We are able to simulate your customised tablet shapes on the basis of lifelike 3D renderings, as well as calculating the precise weight, volume and surface structure of the product by means of state-of-the-art CAD software.
      • Multi-Tip and Pelleting Tools

      • The superior quality of NOTTER TABLETTING TOOLS is particularly important for Multi-Tip and Pelleting Tools. Designed to the highest quality standards, NOTTER precision tools will always deliver the perfect performance. Owing to their consistent operational length and exact pressing dimensions, our multi-tip and pelleting tools are capable of producing perfectly uniform tablets even during high-speed processing.

        -Multi-Tip Tools
        NOTTER Mono-Multi-Tip Tools are manufactured from a single piece of steel. Compared to composite multi-tip tools, these mono tools – due to our innovative production concept – can be operated at very high speeds. Thus, they are capable of achieving impressive throughput volumes, while maintaining consistent dosage precision and tablet weights. In addition they are as easy to set up as standard moulding tools and can be cleaned in accordance with GMP guidelines.
      • Tool Coating

      • Besides hardness, break resistance and corrosion resistance of the base material, the surface coating plays an important role in optimising and reducing wear, and sticking and picking tendencies.

        At our coating center we have focused our research and develop­ment efforts mainly on these two areas. As a result, today we are well equipped with a variety of unique, micro-fine and almost non-porous surface finish coatings. These coatings increase lifetime, reduce wear and enable the surface separation of tablets made from difficult, sticking prone powders.

      • Tool-Management

            • NOTTER – Tool-Management

            • TTS (Tabletting Tool Scanner) by Notter is a pioneering laser measurement system to determine the exact dimensions of functional length and overall length of the tool in a single step. TTS allows you to speed-up the measurement process dramatically. Only one third of the time of a manual analysis is required. At the same time Tabletting Tool Manager (TTM) – a high-performance analysis and administrative software integrated within the system – provides other business-critical information, such as total usage, downtime, repairs, etc. associated with the specific tool. In addition, TTM is a full resource management system and includes e.g. Tabletpresses, Turrets and Compression suits.

              Furthermore, the Assembly function included in Tabletting Tool Manager can be used to compile recommendation lists for the regular deployment of all existing tools targeting for uniform wear. The integrated pairing function can be used to minimise force variation in production.

              Sophisticated tool analysis
              • Check for application requirements of the tools
              • Analysis of the current status of the tools
              • Data collection: e.g. Number of compressions, repair and failures
              • Assessment and corrective action
