About the product

With its new flagship Futorque X-1, kg-pharma is offering an hybrid rotary tablet press that sets new standards worldwide for R&D and production purposes.


The system performance pays off from the preparation of clinical studies and orphan drugs all the way to medium-sized production batches, since thanks to the use of Futorque X-1 no major production machine has to be stopped and a high tablet output is nevertheless possible.

Operation software

The flagship sets standards in design and intuitive operation. An huge 18.5″ BECKHOFF multitouch display – and a all new control software simplifies usage significantly.


This machine type is outstanding with its state-of-the-art  EtherCAT operation and monitoring technology. The best basis for fast data transmission and a multi-compatible industrial standard software.

CADERA machine design

The times when all pharma-machines were built in gray stainless steel have now gone. kg-pharma sets new standards in visual terms as well.


The simple yet elegant “waterfall” front design in white polycarbonate has been combined with sides of stainless steel sheet. For this purpose, the renowned German industrial designer Tom Cadera from Würzburg was given the remit of creating a development for the future

Unique multi purpose concept for standard pharma and containment applications

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 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-16 system offer a pitch circle of 240 mm.
Futorque® is also available as a contained version.
