Abstract: To prepare any formulation in bulk quantity it needs a machine. The machines which manufacture the formulations in a bulk quantity will work on the basis of modern techniques. These techniques can be adopted to prepare different dosage forms through their method of preparations. Churna is also one among the different dosage forms which is having versatile usage and need to be prepared in bulk quantity. To achieve this, different modern methods like size reduction, size separation and mixing of powders and techniques viz. cutting, compression, impact, attrition and combined effect of impact and attrition are adopted, along with this sieving and mixing techniques are also adopted. To assure the quality of churna kalpana physico chemical analysis should be done like fineness of Particles, Presence of Heavy Metals, Test for microbial contamination etc.
