Designed for R&D and Pilot Production

The multi-functional NP-RD30 comes equipped with features that can take you all the way from R&D through production. Outperforming any other tablet press in its class, the NP-RD30 replicates the design and functionality of a full-scale production press with the analytical capabilities of an R&D machine. Whether you’re manufacturing small clinical batches or working with a new product, the NP-RD30 rotary press is built for ultimate efficiency and the dependability you need to reach your goals.

Compresses heavy tablets effortlessly with the push of a button!

Doesn’t stall on start-up; keeps consistent forces even at high RPMs!

Get your product to market faster with the data acquisition, analysis, and scalability features of the NP-RD30!

The NP-RD30’s integrated AIM™Pro data acquisition and analytical software is designed to ease formulation and process development and minimize production issues during scale-up.

  • Provides tablet press scalability parameters
  • Calculates tensile strength for round, convex, and oblong tablets
  • Quickly measures and evaluates tablet formulations and properties
  • Provides projected data from formulation changes
  • Reduces trial and error
  • Evaluates compaction properties of APIs and potential formulations
  • Measures and reports data for tabletability, compactibility, compressibility, and strain rate profiles
  • Effectively optimizes lubrication levels with ejection/compression profiles


  • Gravity Feed Frame and Hopper Options
  • Single-tablet Mode
  • Combination Caster/Levelers
  • Push-button, Self-adjusting Lower Punch Retainers
  • Gravity or Dual-Paddle Force Feeder w/Angled Plow Design
  • Optimized Fill Cam Design
  • Separate Mechanical and Compression Zones

While designed to meet the needs of research and development teams, the NP-RD30 could be used as a small tablet production press.
