A manufacturer of tablets was finding that certain batches of what were purported to be identical tablets were acting in a very undesirable way compared to the standard performance. Moreover, the different batches were causing radical problems further into the manufacturing process.

The Tablets were then tested with a TA.XT2 Texture Analyzer to measure any differences in hardness.
