    Matcon at INTERPHEX 2015

    Matcon solutions provide Lean handling of powders, granules and tablets from dispensing through to primary packing, linking all the processing steps together by transporting product in IBCs. This approach also includes product blending within the IBC. The Tablet IBC, with a Spiral Inlet, is of polyethylene construction which reduces the risk of tablet breakage and marking. The spiral inlet decelerates the speed of the tablets as they are loaded into the IBC, this ensures the tablets are filled gently and do not break or chip. The Cone Valve in the outlet gently lifts to empty the tablets into the process. It lifts without trapping or compressing the tablets. The combination of these features enables larger quantities of tablets, up to 650kg, to be handled in a single Tablet IBC without damage. The Tablet IBC is designed to minimize tablet acceleration, drop height and tablet impact.

Video Title: Fitzpatrick Company/Quadro Manufacturing Powder Processing
Video Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_jYWZ-1tBA
Kind: captions
Language: en

00:00:07.100 --> 00:00:10.400
Two companies.

00:00:10.400 --> 00:00:13.770
One is Quadro Engineering, the other one
being Fitzpatrick Company.

00:00:13.770 --> 00:00:18.070
We are both part of the IDEX Material Processing Technologies group

00:00:18.070 --> 00:00:22.350
and what we do this primarily milling
technologies whether it be

00:00:22.350 --> 00:00:25.400
size reduction by conical milling or by

00:00:25.400 --> 00:00:28.940
comil milling, or more commonly that would be the FitzMill.

00:00:28.940 --> 00:00:33.129
Overall compaction and all these are
technologies that

00:00:33.129 --> 00:00:36.269
we've been selling for decades into the pharma industry

00:00:36.269 --> 00:00:39.409
and technologies that are our core business.

00:00:39.409 --> 00:00:43.050
And some of the things that we
think

00:00:43.050 --> 00:00:46.370
adds a value to our customers is the fact
that our equipment

00:00:46.370 --> 00:00:49.629
does have very good reliability,
quality

00:00:49.629 --> 00:00:52.739
and we have decades of experience

00:00:52.739 --> 00:00:55.870
in-house to provide process help

00:00:55.870 --> 00:00:59.699
or answering process questions that
customers have. At the end of the day

00:00:59.699 --> 00:01:02.809
were always trying to help a customer solve a problem,

00:01:02.809 --> 00:01:05.980
equipment is just a means to do that.

00:01:05.980 --> 00:01:08.980
We call the H20 a high-energy

00:01:08.980 --> 00:01:12.640
comil that is designed towards primarily API

00:01:12.640 --> 00:01:17.200
milling but also for oral solid dosage that needs to be a little bit finer. So those are the two

00:01:17.200 --> 00:01:18.040
primary

00:01:18.040 --> 00:01:21.829
pieces of equipment that we will be
showing.

00:01:21.829 --> 00:01:24.799
We have developed a machine that,

00:01:24.799 --> 00:01:28.250
yes it does mean the containment
requirements, but also has a lot of

00:01:28.250 --> 00:01:29.040
features

00:01:29.040 --> 00:01:32.289
that we've heard from customers
are important to them.

00:01:32.289 --> 00:01:36.049
For example when it comes to the roll compaction, we have

00:01:36.049 --> 00:01:40.369
independent screw feeding systems
that actually eliminates the need for

00:01:40.369 --> 00:01:41.700
reconfiguration.

00:01:41.700 --> 00:01:46.170
We also have minimized a granulator product bypass

00:01:46.170 --> 00:01:50.039
which is, you know, usually big big pain points for our customers.

00:01:50.039 --> 00:01:53.509
We also have a real time roll gap

00:01:53.509 --> 00:01:57.060
feedback control, which again, helps to
densify

00:01:57.060 --> 00:02:00.330
the product, which makes it more uniform on
ribbons

00:02:00.330 --> 00:02:03.679
slugs and then when those get granulated it
actually provides

00:02:03.679 --> 00:02:07.759
a better end product so you have less
sifting to do and you have a more floorable

00:02:07.759 --> 00:02:08.369
product

00:02:08.369 --> 00:02:12.480
so that you can then feed the downstream
processes. So that again separates

00:02:12.480 --> 00:02:13.170
us from

00:02:13.170 --> 00:02:16.530
from a lot technologies out there. The other technology that

00:02:16.530 --> 00:02:20.120
we're introducing, the H20, that
actually

00:02:20.120 --> 00:02:23.739
is going after the API market which
traditionally

00:02:23.739 --> 00:02:27.280
is difficult to achieve very narrow or
tight

00:02:27.280 --> 00:02:31.180
particle size distributions and with the

00:02:31.180 --> 00:02:35.019
the conical milling technology, its in the
past, not be impossible to get to the

00:02:35.019 --> 00:02:37.090
target or the particle size
distributions

00:02:37.090 --> 00:02:41.329
that APIs require. So the H20 is actually
using

00:02:41.329 --> 00:02:44.400
conical milling technology to get the
D50's

00:02:44.400 --> 00:02:50.200
in this 60 to 150 micron range. Again
it's significantly lower than any other conical

00:02:50.200 --> 00:02:51.370
milling technology can do.

00:02:51.370 --> 00:02:55.319
But further more, what we've done with
our redesign

00:02:55.319 --> 00:02:58.459
is were actually able to provide a, I guess a

00:02:58.459 --> 00:03:01.579
narrower particle size distribution, so we have less product

00:03:01.579 --> 00:03:06.359
on the coarser fine size, and more product on target, and we're able to actually shift

00:03:06.359 --> 00:03:10.780
the particle size distribution targets
so traditional technology has a

00:03:10.780 --> 00:03:15.299
difficulty to move that PSD target.
With the H20 we've been

00:03:15.299 --> 00:03:19.549
able to do that. And one of the reasons why

00:03:19.549 --> 00:03:23.470
we are so keen on these technologies
is because when we looked at

00:03:23.470 --> 00:03:26.620
what customers were asking for from us, we did
independent surveys

00:03:26.620 --> 00:03:30.110
from a wide range of
regions

00:03:30.110 --> 00:03:33.040
of customers the second to me was the number 1

00:03:33.040 --> 00:03:36.319
and then the number two in three where
narrow distributions

00:03:36.319 --> 00:03:40.349
and finer particles, lower heat and so on
so these technologies

00:03:40.349 --> 00:03:44.420
are are hitting every one of those points so we are
very happy excited about that.

00:00:28.900 --> 00:00:32.300
Both for packaging lines. The first one

00:00:32.300 --> 00:00:36.120
are all kinds and inspection systems.
We actually have more than 75

00:00:36.120 --> 00:00:39.929
different tools and the second one is serialization and track and trace.

00:00:39.929 --> 00:00:43.979
Well frankly,

00:00:43.979 --> 00:00:48.030
we don't believe its as much of a matter of
technologies, we're all on the same level.

00:00:48.030 --> 00:00:52.479
It's really more about how turn-key you are. At Optel Vision we actually say that we

00:00:52.479 --> 00:00:55.729
deliver projects rather than products. For example,

00:00:55.729 --> 00:00:58.839
for every project of that project manager,
with the whole team

00:00:58.839 --> 00:01:02.399
supporting him, electrical, mechanical,
automation,

00:01:02.399 --> 00:01:06.010
vision, validation specialist are all helping him.

00:01:06.010 --> 00:01:09.830
At the integration we're going to have our
own field technician that will

00:01:09.830 --> 00:01:14.070
install the system, that will support the execution and give the

00:01:14.070 --> 00:01:15.090
training.

00:01:15.090 --> 00:01:18.930
Why do we do all this? Well it's because we track and trace when we need to install an

00:01:18.930 --> 00:01:19.850
existing packaging

00:01:19.850 --> 00:01:23.100
line and every packaging line is different.

00:01:23.100 --> 00:01:26.840
So in order to keep the line efficiency as is and also to minimize the operator learning curve

00:01:26.840 --> 00:01:30.680
it's very important to adapt to every packaging line.

00:01:30.680 --> 00:01:34.680
So that's what we believe makes us different from the others.

00:01:34.680 --> 00:01:38.619
The first innovation we will be having this
year is the new interface

00:01:38.619 --> 00:01:42.369
so based on customer's requests and
suggestions we've improved our

00:01:42.369 --> 00:01:46.869
interface on the various modules and we
try to make it as simple as possible.

00:01:46.869 --> 00:01:51.190
You know serialization, bringing it to the
line, has a certain level of complexity

00:01:51.190 --> 00:01:54.500
and operators need more and more to be involved directly with the HMI

00:01:54.500 --> 00:01:58.090
so what we tend to do is keep it as simple as possible, more intuitive,

00:01:58.090 --> 00:02:03.350
and convenient to them. So it's a step in that direction.

00:02:03.350 --> 00:02:06.539
The second innovation we will be bringing to the market this year

00:02:06.539 --> 00:02:09.550
is the Flying Curtain Tracker. We're very
proud of that one.

00:02:09.550 --> 00:02:13.260
It's a machine that we fully designed on our own, and it replaces

00:02:13.260 --> 00:02:18.170
machines which are quite bulky and
inconvenient to install to our customers

00:02:18.650 --> 00:02:22.750
Basically what happened is that you have to cut the line

00:02:22.750 --> 00:02:26.209
to install such a module, which would
be printing

00:02:26.209 --> 00:02:29.750
and inspecting serialized information. In that case,

00:02:29.750 --> 00:02:33.120
this flying carton goes onto any existing
conveyor

00:02:33.120 --> 00:02:36.280
limiting the installation time. You can
basically switch from

00:02:36.280 --> 00:02:40.600
two days and installation to 60 minutes
and when you have up to 50

00:02:40.600 --> 00:02:44.400
packaging lines to install, it makes a huge difference for them. So this is a big

00:02:44.400 --> 00:02:45.650
reliever for them

00:02:45.650 --> 00:02:49.470
and we're very proud to bring that.

00:02:49.470 --> 00:02:52.750
Well of course one of the main challenges we're all facing

00:02:52.750 --> 00:02:57.000
is how to come up with solutions to adapt to existing lines without impacting

00:02:57.000 --> 00:02:57.910
the speed.

00:02:57.910 --> 00:03:02.769
But what the other challenge is that we don't often think about, that we're all facing as

00:03:02.769 --> 00:03:03.290
well

00:03:03.290 --> 00:03:07.830
is that the packaging line now needs to integrate with the IT infrastructure

00:03:07.830 --> 00:03:12.430
to connect with with their ERP, to connect with the server

00:03:12.430 --> 00:03:15.670
and the little solutions

00:03:15.670 --> 00:03:19.910
are provided by different vendors which
all have their own communication standards.

00:03:19.910 --> 00:03:23.930
Then on top of this, every year or two years a country comes up with a new

00:03:23.930 --> 00:03:24.910
regulation

00:03:24.910 --> 00:03:28.690
which sometimes obligates us to update that communication

00:03:28.690 --> 00:03:32.380
to support whatever that country has asked for.

00:03:32.380 --> 00:03:37.170
So there really is a need in the market to have a standard communication protocol

00:03:37.170 --> 00:03:41.940
between the packaging line, up to the IT layer. I'm really proud to say that

00:03:41.940 --> 00:03:46.140
my company, Optel Vision, took the lead on this in September 2014

00:03:46.140 --> 00:03:50.370
in Frankfort, Germany and we've organized a workshop with all of our competitors and

00:03:50.370 --> 00:03:50.959
also

00:03:50.959 --> 00:03:54.850
the various companies providing IT
solutions and we

00:03:54.850 --> 00:03:58.790
basically created a group called the Open
Architecture for track and trace.

00:03:58.790 --> 00:04:02.760
And the purpose of this group is to work on the those standards, this way

00:04:02.760 --> 00:04:05.850
it's going to really reduce the costs for our customers as the

00:04:05.850 --> 00:04:09.350
integration will be much faster, with a standard all across the industry.

00:04:09.350 --> 00:04:14.940
So I fell that is a really good example to
show how our operations are customer oriented.

00:00:09.100 --> 00:00:12.940
This is the e first we're going to hold
the Engineering Olympics for SKAN.

00:00:12.940 --> 00:00:16.299
This is going to be a lot of fun where
everybody's going to get a chance to

00:00:16.299 --> 00:00:19.859
try out their skills working through glove ports in our isolator system.

00:00:19.859 --> 00:00:23.180
We're gonna have one of our PSI, or
pharmaceutical safety isolators,

00:00:23.180 --> 00:00:27.250
right here in our booth and it's going
to be a competition where you can

00:00:27.250 --> 00:00:31.640
put your hands through the glove ports and try to perform certain tasks through those glove

00:00:31.640 --> 00:00:32.420
ports

00:00:32.420 --> 00:00:36.580
and try to do it in the fastest time. We're even going to have prizes available. It's gonna be a

00:00:36.580 --> 00:00:37.750
lot of fun for everybody

00:00:37.750 --> 00:00:41.010
to try out the new technology as well as
have a little fun

00:00:41.010 --> 00:00:44.200

Video Title: SKAN to Exhibit PSI L-Flange System at INTERPHEX 2015
Video Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xwIoJ4IRQJo
Kind: captions
Language: en

00:00:09.100 --> 00:00:13.990
SKAN is known as the world
leader in isolation technology and

00:00:13.990 --> 00:00:17.560
hydro peroxide gassing systems, but we're
really much more than that.

00:00:17.560 --> 00:00:20.960
We used to be much more of a box builder
and we've

00:00:20.960 --> 00:00:24.420
really evolved into a true process equipment
company

00:00:24.420 --> 00:00:28.330
looking at not only how the equipment is
designed and built

00:00:28.330 --> 00:00:32.470
but also how it is used in the field and how
it's validated.

00:00:32.470 --> 00:00:35.780
We're gonna be having our PSI Modular
Isolator at the INTERPHEX show

00:00:35.780 --> 00:00:40.260
with an actual working system. It's going to be
really exciting because we'll also have our

00:00:40.260 --> 00:00:41.140
interchangeable

00:00:41.140 --> 00:00:44.320
L-Flange, which is essentially a removable
back wall

00:00:44.320 --> 00:00:47.440
and floor of this isolator system where you can
house

00:00:47.440 --> 00:00:51.879
a piece of process equipment and make this
interchangeable between many different

00:00:51.879 --> 00:00:52.920
isolator functions.

00:00:52.920 --> 00:00:57.460
It's a very exciting development and our
pharmaceutical safety isolator systems,

00:00:57.460 --> 00:01:01.680
our PSI, has really become foundation for a
lot of new

00:01:01.680 --> 00:01:06.080
small-scale manufacturing processes. Our
next product that we're going to be

00:01:06.080 --> 00:01:06.610
featuring

00:01:06.610 --> 00:01:11.680
is our SKANFOG SARA Material Airlock. This another
exciting development at SKAN where

00:01:11.680 --> 00:01:14.830
not only have we taken I hydrogen peroxide

00:01:14.830 --> 00:01:18.229
and found a new way to deliver the
hydrogen peroxide to our systems,

00:01:18.229 --> 00:01:22.600
but also we've interfaced a built-in
catalytic converter system

00:01:22.600 --> 00:01:26.020
which allows you to have a stand-alone
isolator chamber

00:01:26.020 --> 00:01:29.259
that provides decontamination between clean rooms

00:01:29.259 --> 00:01:34.170
or even decontamination of materials and
supplies going into a restrict access

00:01:34.170 --> 00:01:35.530
barrier, or RABs,

00:01:35.530 --> 00:01:40.090
or even an isolator system. Our new wireless
glove testing system is also going

00:01:40.090 --> 00:01:40.729
to be featured.

00:01:40.729 --> 00:01:44.539
We'll have a working model at the show
and you'll be able to actually test

00:01:44.539 --> 00:01:45.140
gloves

00:01:45.140 --> 00:01:49.619
and see how the system works. It's a
great example of how SKAN has not only

00:01:49.619 --> 00:01:50.240
taken

00:01:50.240 --> 00:01:53.369
a product and evolved it to the next level

00:01:53.369 --> 00:01:57.780
but also we look at how it's used in the field. We did a lot of microbiological

00:01:57.780 --> 00:01:58.450
testing

00:01:58.450 --> 00:02:01.509
and we looked at how physics glove holes

00:02:01.509 --> 00:02:04.860
occur in field and we defined what

00:02:04.860 --> 00:02:08.910
the microbiological parameters and
physical parameters need to be in order

00:02:08.910 --> 00:02:10.670
to have effective glove leak testing.

00:02:10.670 --> 00:02:14.450
The whole point of this is to make sure
that we don't risk contamination to our

00:02:14.450 --> 00:02:14.920
product

00:02:14.920 --> 00:02:18.650
we believe we've come up with that great
solution that's very effective

00:02:18.650 --> 00:02:22.530
method for using that. The final product
that we're going to be featuring

00:02:22.530 --> 00:02:26.550
at the SKAN booth is or RABs retrofit
program.

00:02:26.550 --> 00:02:29.980
RABs are restricting access barrier
systems and

00:02:29.980 --> 00:02:33.420
although SKAN is well known for our
isolator systems, were actually also

00:02:33.420 --> 00:02:35.670
world leaders in RABs technology.

00:02:35.670 --> 00:02:40.349
We've brought to bear a lot of the
necessary technology and the transfer

00:02:40.349 --> 00:02:42.800
systems used in isolation technology

00:02:42.800 --> 00:02:46.840
and brought them to bear on RABs
technology as well. We can build a very

00:02:46.840 --> 00:02:47.520
compliant

00:02:47.520 --> 00:02:50.670
RABs system and actually extend the life
of an existing

00:02:50.670 --> 00:02:53.950
filling line, bringing the compliance
profile much higher,

00:02:53.950 --> 00:02:58.580
and it's a great way to respond to a lot of
FDA 483 citations

00:02:58.580 --> 00:03:01.750
and get your system up and running and
longer life

00:03:01.750 --> 00:03:05.130
span even for old 10-20 year old filling
lines.

00:03:05.130 --> 00:03:11.180
We'll SKAN works side by side with our
clients to customize their solutions for

00:03:11.180 --> 00:03:11.830
their needs.

00:03:11.830 --> 00:03:15.370
So we have a long history building
custom isolator systems,

00:03:15.370 --> 00:03:18.670
but as some of the examples that I showed
earlier,

00:03:18.670 --> 00:03:22.200
we brought to bear a lot of those
technologies into modular systems

00:03:22.200 --> 00:03:27.250
and other smaller packages where we can
more affordably bring those solutions to the

00:03:27.250 --> 00:03:28.230
wider audience.

00:03:28.230 --> 00:03:32.150
SKAN has taken our technology also to
the next level.

00:03:32.150 --> 00:03:36.000
We've developed now three different
methods of hydrogen peroxide

00:03:36.000 --> 00:03:37.100
decontamination.

00:03:37.100 --> 00:03:41.980
We've developed new catalytic converter
systems where we can aerate an isolator

00:03:41.980 --> 00:03:42.620
system

00:03:42.620 --> 00:03:47.140
or a material airlock chamber very quickly.
And we can have cycle times

00:03:47.140 --> 00:03:50.260
under two hours in very large filling
isolators.

00:03:50.260 --> 00:03:53.430
And we've even achieved in small isolator systems,

00:03:53.430 --> 00:03:56.580
total cycle times in less than 30
minutes,

00:03:56.580 --> 00:04:00.640
which is unheard of in the industry. We've
really taken this to the next level and we're

00:04:00.640 --> 00:04:05.080
very excited about the technology we
bring to bear. We also utilize

00:04:05.080 --> 00:04:08.860
our hydrogen peroxide knowledge to
understand how the

00:04:08.860 --> 00:04:13.220
hydrogen peroxide interacts with the
product. For example you can have low

00:04:13.220 --> 00:04:14.350
level residuals

00:04:14.350 --> 00:04:17.580
of hydrogen peroxide may have a slight impact
on your product.

00:04:17.580 --> 00:04:22.650
We have measurement technology in our
labs where we can measure down to 2-5

00:04:22.650 --> 00:04:26.240
parts-per-billion range and actually be
able to detect

00:04:26.240 --> 00:04:29.830
hydrogen peroxide in your products and
in your container packages.

00:04:29.830 --> 00:04:32.780
It's very important to understand

00:04:32.780 --> 00:04:35.720
what's going on with your
decontamination process.

00:04:35.720 --> 00:04:39.470
It's much more than getting kill of
biological indicators.

00:04:39.470 --> 00:04:43.570
SKAN has responded to the

00:04:43.570 --> 00:04:47.150
industry with numerous innovations and
developments over the past five years.

00:04:47.150 --> 00:04:51.100
I mentioned the faster cycle times, again
under two hours for large-scale

00:04:51.100 --> 00:04:54.060
isolators and some small-scale isolators and airlocks

00:04:54.060 --> 00:04:59.440
less than 15 or 30 minutes. We have new
hydron peroxide delivery methods including

00:04:59.440 --> 00:05:01.610
new SKANFOG system where we can do

00:05:01.610 --> 00:05:05.990
larger scale material airlocks and even rooms.
Finally

00:05:05.990 --> 00:05:09.190
low-level residual testing and being
able to test

00:05:09.190 --> 00:05:12.410
your process in our laboratory will help
you to find

00:05:12.410 --> 00:05:15.760
and really validate a more effective
process for your product.

00:05:15.760 --> 00:05:19.580
SKAN has also developed our own
biological indicator

00:05:19.580 --> 00:05:22.640
which is where really required for us to be the

00:05:22.640 --> 00:05:28.450
final missing link in the entire
hydrogen peroxide gassing process.

00:05:28.450 --> 00:05:31.940
We provide a performance guarantee for
all of our cycles

00:05:31.940 --> 00:05:35.870
and now we know that we have a reliable
biological indicator that has the

00:05:35.870 --> 00:05:37.210
highest quality testing

00:05:37.210 --> 00:05:40.880
as well as the highest
quality manufacturing

00:05:40.880 --> 00:05:44.100
methodologies.

Yeah, well SMI is a New Jersey based company

00:00:12.860 --> 00:00:17.600
founded in 1982. Supporting
measurement programs for industry and

00:00:17.600 --> 00:00:18.300
government

00:00:18.300 --> 00:00:22.090
SMI grew into one of the largest
testing firms in the US.

00:00:22.090 --> 00:00:26.720
We work on power plants, suspension
bridges, naval ships and many military

00:00:26.720 --> 00:00:27.600
programs.

00:00:27.600 --> 00:00:32.169
The measurements that SMI provides
are strength guage base sensors

00:00:32.169 --> 00:00:36.180
custom design load cells, accelerometers,
and displacement sensors.

00:00:36.180 --> 00:00:41.530
Our first pharmaceutical project
involved designing custom transducers for

00:00:41.530 --> 00:00:43.239
a single station tablet press

00:00:43.239 --> 00:00:46.670
at the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy and Sciences.

00:00:46.670 --> 00:00:51.809
Shortly after, SMI designed transducers for the rotary tablet press

00:00:51.809 --> 00:00:55.750
which led into the first computerized
data acquisition system

00:00:55.750 --> 00:01:00.559
commercially available for tablet presses. And today that software system is called

00:01:00.559 --> 00:01:01.320
the director.

00:01:01.320 --> 00:01:07.569
Well, at INTERPHEX 2015 SMI will be
highlighting the new Bilayer Nova

00:01:07.569 --> 00:01:10.310
tablet press with the director Pro
software.

00:01:10.310 --> 00:01:15.149
The Bilayer Nova is a 21 station
machine with interchangeable turret

00:01:15.149 --> 00:01:18.689
design capabilities. It's also designed
for a single layer tabletting

00:01:18.689 --> 00:01:22.840
and bio-layer tabletting. The
director software

00:01:22.840 --> 00:01:26.039
provides R&D modules and production
modules.

00:01:26.039 --> 00:01:29.569
And for R&D, it provides compact-ability
profiles,

00:01:29.569 --> 00:01:33.079
strain rate studies, scalability modeling.

00:01:33.079 --> 00:01:36.130
And the director pro in production
module,

00:01:36.130 --> 00:01:39.829
offers automatic tablet weight control and
rejection system.

00:01:39.829 --> 00:01:45.439
Well, it's a multifunctional machine. It
offers single layer and bio layer on one

00:01:45.439 --> 00:01:46.139
machine.

00:01:46.139 --> 00:01:50.520
It's also designed for development areas
and the production environments

00:01:50.520 --> 00:01:55.619
so it's kind of a hybrid system. Well we're
going to have a line of tablet presses

00:01:55.619 --> 00:01:57.259
from a single station machine

00:01:57.259 --> 00:02:02.209
for pre-formulation development. Our bench
top rotary tablet press, which is called

00:02:02.209 --> 00:02:02.999
a Piccola.

00:02:02.999 --> 00:02:06.569
This is a small-scale machine for
R&D as well.

00:02:06.569 --> 00:02:10.850
And we'll also have the Biolayer Nova tablet press which again is for R&D

00:02:10.850 --> 00:02:13.710
and pilot-scale manufacturing.
