Modeling Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Processes Using Particle Simulation


This webinar was presented live on Tuesday 12th May 2020.

Efficient handling and processing of particulates is critical to profitable manufacture of pharmaceutical products. Over 75% of all pharmaceutical products are in the solid dosage form and particulates are involved in almost every stage of the manufacturing process.

EDEM simulation software accurately simulates and analyzes the behavior of granular materials such as powders, tablets and capsules. It is a powerful tool used to model common pharmaceutical manufacturing processes such as mixing, blending, granulation and tablet coating. 

Join this webinar and find out how EDEM simulation technology can provide key insights leading to optimized processes, better product quality, less physical prototyping and therefore cost savings.

Topics Covered:
• Challenges of handling particulates
• Introducing EDEM simulation technology
• Calibration tests for powders
• Pharmaceutical applications of EDEM:
– Powder mixing/blending
– Tablet coating
– Tablet breakage
– Die Filling
– Granulation
– Milling/Grinding
• Q&A
