Tablet Compression Tooling Accessories
Bellows and Drip Cups
Granule contamination during the tabletting process can cause costly manufacturing problems. Punch Bellows and Drip Cups help to prevent tablet and punch guide contamination during the tablet compression process. All silicone Bellows and Drip cups supplied by I Holland are 100% FDA compliant. In addition to our standard bellows and drip cups, I Holland have now developed a range that are identifiable by standard metal detection equipment.
Universal Seal Groove
Our Punches are able to incorporate the Universal Seal Groove, which allows Bellows to be fitted onto upper punches forming a flexible seal between the turret and the punch barrel thus reducing the risk of oil contamination from the machine's lubrication system. Drip Cups can also be fitted to the Universal Seal Groove, allowing the user a choice of solutions. The Universal Seal Groove can be applied to I Holland Euro 'B' and 'D' type Punches. Alternatively, it is possible to fit the Universal Seal Groove to any Punch type provided that the tablet compression tooling design will accommodate the required fixing groove and the punch barrel diameter does not exceed the Bellows dimensions.

Rotahead punches allow the head to rotate independently to the punch body, providing a 'bearing' between the punch head and cams. The punch head can be manufactured from a harder, more wear resistant material optimising metallurgical characteristics of the punch assembly, and providing extended tooling life.
Die Alignment Tools
The die alignment tool is used in conjunction with multi-tipped and shaped punches. The die alignment tool aligns the die bores relative to the keyways in the turret guides; this allows all dies to be fitted rapidly and accurately.
Designed with Wash In Place (WIP) solutions in mind, this coated key is extremely resistant to corrosion. When partnered with the appropriate PharmaGrade® steel, this is the ideal tool for WIP presses.
