About the Piccola Bilayer
The Piccola Bilayer with all the features of a large R&D up through Pilot Scale 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 new “Single Layer Kit” will greatly reduce the amount of waste when running mono layer tablets. This feature allows excess material to recirculate back to the feeder verses exiting the waste tube.
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.
