Optimizing Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Processes with EDEM particle simulation
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.
Altair EDEM software - powered by the Discrete Element Method (DEM) - 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.
This technology can provide key insights leading to optimized processes and innovation in product design.
