SWFT designed to measure 5 parameters of tablet breaking force which is hardness, thickness, diameter, width, and weight.
Tablet breaking force is the process of testing the mechanical integrity of the tablet i.e. the force required to break the tablet in a specific plane. Breaking force of tablets is of importance in production and quality check as it directly co-relates with other parameters like tablet disintegration time, dissolution value, friability value etc.
Hence, a bunch of tablets from a batch is chosen to check the breaking force value.
To produce a dosage form with optimal parameters, the co-relation between Hardness, Disintegration, Dissolution, Friability, and Percentage defect with Weight variation is essential.
