OPTIMIZATION OF TURRET COMPONENTS OF TABLET PRESS MACHINE
PATEL RAVIKUMAR JAGJIVANBHAI,  HITESH SANEPARA
A tablet press is a mechanical device that compresses powder into tablets of uniform size and weight. To form a tablet, the granulated material must be metered into a cavity formed by two punches and a die, and then the punches must be pressed together with great force to fuse the material together. A method of structure optimization for tablet press is proposed in order to reduce mass while assuring adequate stiffness. Pre compressor assembly, main compressor assembly, turret, plates are determined as optimal objects by mass analysis. Key geometric parameters of plates which have relatively larger impacts on mass and stiffness are extracted as design variables. In order to research relationship between stiffness, mass and design variables, command batch file is built by CREO and analysis is done in ANSYS and topology optimization is done in HYPERMESH.
