The Manufacturing Process

Create economies of scale across your system

Each of the cosmetic production stages requires specific types of industrial rotating equipment. Proper operation and maintenance of this equipment is crucial for creating efficiencies and increasing productivity.

Mixing & Blending

In the early stages of pharmaceutical production, raw materials need to be thoroughly mixed to ensure a consistent product. This is typically accomplished using industrial mixers, which use rotating blades or paddles to combine the materials.

Milling & Grinding

Pharmaceuticals often require very fine powders for certain dosage forms like tablets, capsules, or suspensions. This can involve rotating mills or grinders to reduce the particle size of the raw materials.


The process of granulation is a key part of many pharmaceutical production processes, especially in tablet manufacturing. It involves rotating equipment like granulators and mixers to bind together the primary powder particles.

Tablet Compression

Rotary tablet presses, which use rotating turrets to press the powder into tablets, are a common piece of equipment in the pharmaceutical industry.


Tablet coating machines, which often involve rotating drums or pans, are used to apply a coating to the tablets for ease of swallowing, improving stability, or controlling drug release.

Filtration & Centrifugation

To remove unwanted particles or to separate different components in a mixture, filtration or centrifugation steps may be required. These processes often involve rotating equipment such as centrifuges or rotary drum filters.

Heat Transfer

In processes where heating or cooling is required, rotating equipment like agitators can be used in conjunction with a jacketed vessel to ensure even heat distribution.

Filling & Packaging:

Once the pharmaceutical product is ready, it needs to be packaged. This often involves rotating machinery like filling machines, capping machines, and labeling machines.

Waste Management

Any waste products from the production process need to be handled appropriately. This can involve the use of pumps or other rotating equipment to move the waste to the appropriate location for treatment or disposal.
