Release of the Semiautomatic NP-RD10A


April 17, 2011


SAINT CHARLES, MO – Natoli Engineering Company, Inc. announces the release of the semiautomatic
NP-RD10A. Like the previous manually operated version, Natoli’s NP-RD10A is a single
station, benchtop tablet press ideal for pharmaceutical laboratory research and development when only
small samples are available for testing. The NP-RD10A has multi-layering capabilities and permits
independent control of both tablet hardness and weight to meet tablet production requirements and
specifications. Using this press eliminates the handling of multiple tool parts to compress a single tablet,
and when used in laboratory research, significantly helps to maintain tablet uniformity, reduce trial and
error, decrease formulation waste, and increase production speed.

The NP-RD10A fits on benchtop areas and is constructed with unique features, including multi-layering
capabilities; a 10 U.S./10 Metric capacity; ½” thick Lexan® guards, which serve as safety shields; quick
tablet ejector lever easily ejects tablet eliminating the need for disassembly; micro-adjustable depth of fill
provides extremely accurate layer weight control; electro-less nickel coated steel construction; CEcertified;
utilizes “TSM” or “EU” “B”, “D” and “F” standard tool configurations; digital depth of fill
gauge optimizes tablet weight consistency; extra deep fill capacity; digital process meter for compression
and ejection force display; programmable parameters for compression force control and automatic cycle
return; and RS 485 serial communications output.

Established in 1973, Natoli is the world’s premier manufacturer and supplier of tablet compression
tooling, presses, replacement parts, accessories, software, services and training for the pharmaceutical,
nutritional, veterinary, industrial and confectionery industries. Dedication to excellence, combined with
steadfast determination, innovative thinking and a commitment to providing the best customer service has
