Patent Number: 7,131,554

Title: Tablet feeder

Abstract: A tablet feed having a drive transmission composed of a drive gear 7 that is interlocked with the rotating shaft of a motor 6, a driven gear 13 that is interlocked with a rotor 9, and an intermediate gear 14 made up of a first gear section 15 that gears with the drive gear 7 and a second gear section 16 that gears with the driven gear 13. At least a gear ratio of the second gear section 16 to the first gear section 15 of the intermediate gear 14 is made small so as to prevent tablets in other pocket sections 10 adjacent to a pocket section 10 open to a discharge port 11 from falling from the discharge port 11 when a tablet housing case 4 is detached from a case support base 3. This makes it possible to prevent tablets from falling down when the tablet housing case is detached from the case support base.
