Applications of EDEM for Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Processes
Over 75% of all pharmaceutical products are in the solid dosage form and particulates are involved in almost every stage of the manufacturing process. Efficient handling and processing of particulates is critical to profitable manufacture of pharmaceutical products.
Common problems areas include poor mixing, uneven coating, non-uniform die filling and pill breakage. These can have a strong impact on the productivity of operations and the final product quality.
Find out how EDEM simulation technology can be used to obtain a greater understanding of powder behavior and optimize a range of processes including mixing, die filling, milling and tablet coating.
EDEM is the market-leading software for bulk material simulation.
Powered by state-of-the-art Discrete Element Modeling (DEM) technology, EDEM quickly and accurately simulates and analyzes the behavior of bulk materials such as coal, mined ores, soil, tablet, and powders.
EDEM simulation provides engineers with crucial insight into how bulk materials will interact with their equipment during a range of operation and process conditions.
Since November 2019, EDEM has been part of Altair.
