The patented Oblong Centering Device (OZB) is available as an optional module and can be retrofitted to all UTS testing systems version 4 and higher. The centering unit is installed above the hardness measuring station.
Elongated products such as oblong tablets, for example, are precisely positioned and guided without contact during the hardness test. Customized centering jaws can be provided for unusual shaped tablets.
Precise positioning and guidance provides you with maximum peace of mind during hardness measurements of oblong tablets. ‘Multiple’ centering is already integrated and just needs to be activated.
The jaws of the OZB unit enable automatic measurement of tablet width. In conjunction with the Ph21 software or touch display, width can be set as the fifth measurement parameter. Alternatively, the OZB can also be used in place of the thickness gauge to measure tablet thickness. This special feature solves the problem of oblong tablets lying on their side because of the unfavorable height/side ratio.
