Product ID: Piccola-Bilayer
The Piccola Bi-layer tablet press is a 10-ton rotary tablet press. The press uses standard B or D tooling. The press with SMI instrumentation is designed to simplify the development process.
The Piccola Bi-layer tablet press, with "The Director" data acquisition and analysis system, will shorten development time and help solve formulation problems. Detailed analysis of individual compression events enhance the understating of the compaction process. SMI instrumentation of ejection and take off forces can assist in lubrication studies. Compaction profiles are generated in minutes.
The Piccola Bi-layer tablet press, with its larger turret diameter, pre-compression, and variable speed allow for realistic scale up to larger rotary presses. The dual paddle feed system helps maintain uniform die fill and represents production equipment. With the large variable speed range and "The Director", strain rate sensitivity studies will predict how the formulation will behave in production.
At 42,000 tablets per hour the Piccola Bi-layer tablet press can easily be utilized for small or specialized production runs. The 30-minute tooling change over makes the Piccola Bi-layer tablet press especially attractive when smaller batches are required.
The Piccola Bi-layer tablet press with "The Director" will generate a Compaction Study with as little as 300 grams of material. A Strain Rate Sensitivity Study will determine how the formulation will run in production
