Although extrusion technology was already well understood in plastics processing by the middle of the 80s, it was still in its infancy in the pharmaceutical industry. By now, this has changed significantly because the continuous extrusion process has become a very interesting alternative to traditional manufacturing processes
for pellets, tablets and transdermal systems.
Leistritz Extrusion Technology is a technological leader in this field. For more than two decades, we have supplied extruders to the pharmaceutical industry and thus have very extensive know-how.
