The Futorque® X-1 offers, as one of many other technical innovations, a high torque servo drive for maximum force at slow turret speed, often required in tabletting R&D. The product name chosen for the range has been coined from a combination of the words “future” and “torque”. The designation X-1 offers the prospect that after the first model – for mono-layer tablets – further models will follow. The standard turrets B-18 and D-14, the combi-system and the FlexAdapt X-14 system offer a pitch circle of 240 mm.
