This system was designed for research and development of osmotic pump tablets used for time-release medications. A fixture of tablets are loaded on an XY table. The tablets are drilled by a CO2 laser that was selected through rigorous testing in our applications lab. After a set of nine tablets are drilled, the XY table moves to the next set. Once the drilling process is complete, the vision system checks each tablet for hole position, quantity, size, and shape. With over 30 years of experience in pharmaceutical laser processing systems, CMS Laser is committed to providing top quality systems and support the industry needs.
