Tablet Press Manufacture for Compaction Simulation and Powder Analysis

MEDELPHARM is a high-precision engineering company manufacturing research and development (R&D) tablet presses and providing innovative solutions for powder analysis and formulation.


MEDELPHARM is a specialist in the development, design, and manufacture of research and development (R&D) tablet presses and compaction simulators for powder compaction.

This high-precision engineering company provides intelligent tablet press technology and software development solutions for powder analysis and formulation.

MEDELPHARM focuses on the continuous development of innovative research and development presses (hardware and software), compaction simulation of industrial production cycles, powder characteriation and formulation services, compression, and material science. As compressed powders can be found everywhere, the applications encompass the pharmaceutical, cosmetics, food and nutraceuticals, chemistry & detergents, batteries & catalysts and explosives & nuclear industries.

R&D press for tablet development

The STYL’One Nano is the revolutionary benchtop R&D tablet press for demanding formulation scientists with price performance in mind. From API/excipient characterization, analytical development to formulation feasibility assessment and optimization, develop your single-layer formulation with only a few grams of powder.

The STYL’One Evo versatile compaction simulator is a high-speed, all-in-one single and multilayer tool designed for use in tablet development from early formulation to scale-up at production speed.

The machine characterizes essential powder properties and active pharmaceutical ingredients (API). It tests their suitability by simulating industrial production cycles, typically up to 400,000 tab/hour (dwell time <2ml), with only a few grams of powder needed.

The STYL’One Evo is designed for ease-of-use, compact footprint, and offers easy exchange of B, D (EU │TSM), oversized or core rods tooling. An optional micro-dosing unit, tab-in-tab device, GMP module with weight regulation, and force feeding are just a few of the available accessories offered with production mind.

More than 250 MEDELPHARM STYL’One units have been installed worldwide.

Quality by Design (QbD) R&D tablet press

QbD is a concept to produce a drug in a repeatable and cost-effective way. The QbD concept is in the heart of the design and development of the STYL’One R&D tablet press.

Machine operator protection during tablet production

With a global trend of powders being more and more potent, MEDELPHARM makes no compromise on user protection during tableting offering multiple solutions from wash-in-place to full containment OEB 5.

Dry granulation formulation development

Deciding on the right granulation process to meet your needs can be very material consuming. With the STYL’One Evo roller compaction simulation tool, you can identify the feasibility and impact of dry granulation directly at lab-scale with a limited amount of powder.

Training courses for tablet formulation and production

MEDELPHARM offers a range of training courses that are recognised by French authorities. The company aims to offer its extensive knowledge through effective training.

MEDELPHARM also offers its professional tableting instruments to various universities for training purposes so students can gain experience on current and future working methods. The company has university partnerships worldwide.

Maintenance, FAT, and SAT

MEDELPHARM offers services such as URS definition, installation, FAT, SAT, training and support, maintenance, and calibration, as well as consumables and wear and tear parts.
