Sharpen your skills in tablet press setup, operation, and maintenance procedures.
ST. CHARLES, MO (May 9, 2022) — For years, Natoli Engineering’s competitive advantage has been its broad array of training courses. Whereas many companies only sell tablet press tooling and machinery, Natoli offers in-house training seminars that give customers an opportunity to learn how to operate and maintain the equipment sold in the company’s large product catalogue.
On June 14-16, Natoli starts its summer training season with Tablet Press & Tooling: Applied Learning Experience at its global headquarters in St. Charles, Missouri. The two-day seminar will teach students best practices for tablet press operation and maintenance. The course, which is offered a few times each year, is fully comprehensive, and each one provides students with the latest knowledge, research, and technology in tablet compression tooling. Supervisors, QA & QC personnel, and Maintenance Technicians at any stage are encouraged to attend.
Tableting mechanics taught by seasoned instructors.
“Operators’ jobs are hands-on, so their training should be, too!”, says company President, Dale Natoli. “The heavy focus on hands-on experience and classroom instruction provides the perfect balance to show attendees how tablet presses and tooling work in theory and in practice.”
During the training, students will enhance their knowledge of setup, operation and maintenance procedures for tablet presses, and other tooling options. The goal is to empower professionals to effectively reduce downtime and increase productivity. Upon completion, students will have learned:
- (Dis)assembly of all main components of a rotary tablet press
- Mechanics of press failures and cam wear
- Relationships among maintenance, inspections, operations, and troubleshooting
For those who can’t attend the session in June, two more will be offered later this summer: July 19-21, and August 9-10. To register, or for more information on tuition rates, please visit https://natoli.com/trainings/.
