Tablet Design

Whatever your tablet needs, simple or complex, standard or original design – we’ve got you covered.

A proper tablet design is a key factor in tablet quality. This is why tablet design should not be overlooked or taken for granted.

Much too often in our industry, we see poor tablet design holding back companies. Don’t let this happen to you!

A well-designed tablet can:

  • Ensure solid tablet quality
  • Maximize tablet production
  • Enhance the product lifecycle
  • Create easy recognition, which builds brand equity and incorporates brand authentication

If you are in the process of developing a product, our engineers can help you to develop an efficient and effective tablet design based on best practices and your manufacturing requirements and restrictions.

Communication is key to proper tablet design.

Poor quality tablets are often the result of poor tablet design. Poor tablet design is often caused by a lack of communication during the design process. Good communication with your tooling supplier is key to proper tablet design and new product success. To ensure your success, our dedicated team of engineers thoroughly discuss product and production issues of your new and existing tablets and carefully evaluate the designs during each step of the process.

Areas of Communication for Tablet Design Success:

  • Marketing
  • Research and development
  • Engineering
  • Compression
  • Coating (if applicable)
  • Packaging
  • Tooling vendor

Factors to Consider when Designing a Tablet:

  • Sticking/Picking
  • Capping/Lamination
  • Corrosive Formulations
  • Abrasive Formulations
  • Formulation Compressibility
  • Temperature Sensitivity
  • Film coating (if any)


If you have questions or want to get started on the design process, our team will be happy to help you today.

Thank you so much for getting the tooling done so quickly.  As I was telling my client, I had a great relationship with Natoli in the past at my previous employer and Natoli will always go above and beyond to try to help the client out but even I was surprised that you could turn around this order so quickly.  From our management, we really appreciated Natoli being able to process the tooling in an expedited manner!!!!
