Piccola Touch

SMI's flagship tablet press, the Piccola Classic has been updated with the latest features. The Piccola Touch yields a 5.5 Ton (55 kN) compression force with a maximum yield of 60,000 tablets per hour. The classic push button panel has been replaced with a new touch-screen HMI, and now runs using Allen Bradley PLC. Ideal for small companies and extremely tight working environments, the small size and weight of the Piccola make it ideal for R&D purposes.

Additionally, the compact design allows for a small minimum batch size. Precompression, paddle feeders and turret speeds of up to 100 RPM enable realistic scale up to larger production presses.


When paired with "The Director" instrumentation system, the Piccola empowers your development team with a better understanding of the compaction process. Sensors monitoring precompression, main compression, ejection, and take-off forces enable studies that can identiy issues such as sticking, capping, laminating, over lubrication, and strain reate sensitivity (scale-up issues) early in the development process.

The Piccola Bilayer with all the features of a large production press, is essential for early development and scale up production. Designed for R&D, the Piccola Bilayer excels at shortening development time, solving formulation problems and running low volume production runs.


The Piccola Bilayer can use turret configurations of 'B', 'D' and 'B+D' tooling. When combined with "The Director" instrumentation system, detailed analysis of individual compression events enhance the understanding of the compaction process. This allows the Piccola Bilayer to generate realistic and accurate scale up parameters when merging to a larger rotary press.


The 30-minute tooling swap time makes the Piccola Bilayer especially attractive when smaller batches are desired. The Piccola Bilayer with "The Director" will generate a compaction study with as little as 300 grams of material.
