Laser Drilling & Marking Systems

for research and development of time-release medications

System Overview

Research & Development Systems

Our tablet drilling systems for research and development of osmotic-pump time-release medications are used by pharmaceutical companies to develop and test their tablet formulas. Our systems can be custom designed to meet your specific needs for round, oval, and longitudinally compressed tablets (LCTs). Laser drill standard aperture sizes from 0.2mm to 2mm with vision inspection of each tablet, as well as, create anti-counterfeit markings in semipermeable coatings. We have worked with many pharmaceutical companies to produce small batch submittals and sample testing of placebo tablets.
