Pioneer in pharmaceutical extrusion

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.

The extrusion process is suitable for:

  • incorporation of an API into a matrix (e.g. wax, cellulose, starch and other polymers)
  • pelletizing a tablet premix
  • compounding an antibacterial TPU premix
  • stripping off volatile content from a formulation
  • coatings for transdermal applications
  • implementation of various dosage forms
  • reactive extrusion
