With Natoli Advantage save on costs by using a standardised process for training and management of tablet compression and encapsulation tooling

Natoli Engineering provides a program to help set a global standard of efficiency called The Natoli Advantage. The Natoli Advantage saves costs using standardised process for training and the management of tablet compression and encapsulation tooling.

Through a value-added relationship, Natoli’s team of industry experts will work with organisations to provide customised solutions to meet production demands and achieve optimal efficiency. Natoli has regional service centres and representatives across the globe to provide support, training, and troubleshooting.

By developing a single-source agreement with Natoli, a site will be selected whereby standardised procedures will be created that will be applicable throughout the entire organisation.

Natoli provides customised training standard for all manufacturing locations. Consistent, in-depth technical training ensures every member of the team is confident in their role and can meet expectations. Visual work instructions created based on Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) to build better understanding of procedures and train new staff, as well as, visual job aides to increase awareness and aid in troubleshooting.

“Our team of industry experts work with customers to provide customised solutions to meet their production demands and achieve optimal efficiency,” noted Cheri Orth, Natoli’s Key Accounts Manager and the leading expert on the Natoli Advantage initiative. Equipment services also provide a Preventative Maintenance Assessment to ensure that equipment and facility capabilities meet the demands of production and process requirements. Calibration and verification services are available to ensure optimal performance, improve product quality, and reduce downtime. Services also include refurbishing and/or retrofitting of state-of-the-art tablet presses or encapsulation machines. An upgrade in Operating Control Systems with Natoli’s AIM Software is also included.

Natoli provides uniform SOPs from site-to-site to promote and ensure process control because concise, well-defined SOPs can hold great opportunity for successful performance optimisation and compliance. Natoli has defined and established Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to evaluate growth and success. Inventory Management is an important part of The Natoli Advantage.

Natoli utilises TMII software and an LVS inspection system to manage inventory, increase production and minimise downtime. The software can establish historical data for accessing tool life, product quality, determine future expenditures, and create blanket POs for frequently ordered tooling.

Natoli has a free web-based tablet design program called TabletCAD that allows organisations to design tablets to their specifications quickly and easily. Metallurgy Services are provided to aide in steel selection, treatments, wear testing and analysis for failed parts related to all manufacturing processes to improve the longevity of tooling. Analysis may include recommendations for engineering services to enhance design of parts. Maintenance Procedures will help optimise tablet or capsule output, reduce RSD percentages, and extend the life of tooling and parts through proper maintenance procedures.

Global Standardisation with The Natoli Advantage can increase efficiency and production uptime. It can help to reduce Tablet/Capsule and tooling deficiencies and extend tool life while having tooling and parts available on demand. Through the standardisation of all sites, management can save costs and work more effectively across all regions to establish best practices for efficient GMP compliant production of oral solid dose products.
