Pharma industry has become very much stringent in maintaining their quality standards in tablet toolings, capsule filling, anti-sticking and anti-corrosive tool surface, etc. They have to tackle with highly abrasive and corrosive formulations during tablets and capsules production process without disturbing their aesthetics standards. Also, growing demand of the ayurveda has introduced new challenges in front of the pharma industry. Ayurvedic powders contain hard particles which abrade the tools surface frequently. Also, most of formulations are hygroscopic outcomes in escalating the sticking nature.
To outcome these situations, they need to transfigure the tooling materials, surface treatments and their surface modifications. Surface coatings like hard chrome plating, nickel plating reduces these issues up to some extent but not at par with the pharma industry standards. Introduction of PVD coatings into this industry provided a boost in their productivity.
