Natoli Offers Tablet Press Refurbishment with Opportunity to add Natoli AIM™ Software

St. Charles, MO (October 15, 2020)—Natoli Engineering Company, Inc. offers a way to enhance the performance of older tablet presses for improved production and reduction of tablet manufacturing costs. Natoli’s refurbishment specialists can upgrade outdated or inoperative tablet presses to improve ease of operation, enhance press performance and tablet quality, reduce product loss, and update cGMP compliance.

Natoli’s technicians have decades of experience refurbishing all major brands of presses. The tablet press refurbishment procedures and equipment are state-of-the-art. A fully refurbished tablet press can improve the functionality of the original equipment.

Natoli refurbishing services could include the installation of Natoli AIM™ Data Acquisition and Analytical Software for those presses without factory installed analytical software. Natoli AIM™ can be retrofitted to most production tablet presses, as well as most, single-station, and rotary R&D tablet presses. The addition of Natoli AIM™ can improve research and development or increase tablet production.

Natoli AIM™ helps evaluate compaction properties of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and potential formulations and identify potential tableting issues such as capping, lamination, sticking/picking, porosity, and scalability.

Natoli AIM™ for rotary R&D tablet presses saves time by getting projected data results from formulation changes during R&D like pre-compression force, upper/lower compression force, ejection force, punch face sticking force, temperature, turret speed, and strain rate sensitivity. Natoli AIM™ can obtain data directly from an R&D tablet press and generate data from a single tablet. It can determine whether there is sufficient tablet tensile strength and lubrication. Easy-to-read reports help evaluate mechanical properties of tablet material.

Natoli AIM™ Data Acquisition and Analytical Software can be included as part of an overall tablet press refurbishment or as a standalone installation.
