The roller compaction process has been among the most important innovations in the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry. Over 75 % of pharmaceutical formulations are in the form of tablets and capsules. These are comprised of different active ingredients which exhibit different physical and chemical characteristics. The roller compactor serves to compact and granulate the powders. This compaction process makes the resulting granules to have better flowability and higher density easily and economically processed into tablets .
