Risky Business

The globalisation of clinical trials and speciality pharmaceutical commercialisation, along with the rise of complex biologicalbased drug therapies, presents a host of opportunities for manufacturers. However, today’s mobile supply chain also comes with substantial risks. If overlooked, it can leave manufacturers, investors and an industry worth approximately $1.1 trillion exposed to potentially significant losses.

Managing the transportation of biopharmaceutical logistics cost almost $79 billion in 2016, with temperature-controlled products accounting for nearly $13 billion, according to Pharmaceutical Commerce’s annual Biopharma Cold Chain Sourcebook. With a growth rate of 8-9% year-on-year, spending on temperature-controlled logistics is predicted to rise to almost $17 billion by 2020, and the non-cold chain is estimated at $77 billion.

Such expense necessitates the identification and qualification of investment to mitigate mounting risks.

Quality of Steel

Natoli Engineering Company, Inc.

Steel quality is the summation of how well a steel meets its specified chemistry, the cleanliness of the steel or degree to which it is free of impurities or inclusion, homogeneity of the microstructure, grain/carbide size and in some instances if it meets the mechanical requirements for that particular steel. In the design and manufacture of tablet compression tooling, nothing is more important than the quality of the materials being used. The best manufacturing principals maintaining the tightest tolerances will result in tool failure if the initial material quality is poor. Material quality is the fundamental building block upon which all successive value added steps are laid. The majority of all tablet compression tooling is produced from steel and steel quality is the subject of this article.
