Tool Types

I Holland make punches and dies for any tablet press available in the world today, including IMA Comprima, nutraceutical, detergent and designer-shaped tooling. Not only that, but our bespoke Multi-Tip tablet tooling means you can enhance productivity without huge increases in cost or floor-space required. 


We understand the demand for increased productivity within modern tablet production and always strive to ensure that our punches and dies are at the very leading edge of tooling design. This allows our customers to retain a competitive edge. Many PharmaGrade steels and PharmaCote treatments and coatings can be used in conjunction with all of our designs in order to create a robust tooling solution that is capable of being both incredibly productive and durable at the same time. A very competitive lead time is also offered on all of our tooling systems, from designer shapes to multi tip tooling.

Micro Tips

Micro tips are tips that are equal to or smaller than 4mm in diameter. They carry all the same benefits as multi tipped tooling, including the impressive array of configuration options to suit many products.

Multi Tips

Increasing productivity within modern tablet production is an on-going challenge and we at I Holland are always striving to assist our partners in their quest for increased capacity. We have therefore developed our range of multiple tipped tablet tooling.

Multi and micro tips have a whole host of benefits. These include:

  • Increase in productivity – Number of tablets per turret rotation is multiplied by the number of tips.
  • No large capital outlay on new presses – Higher tooling costs are easily outweighed by increased output.
  • Reduction in press run time per out put of tablets – Less maintenance is required per batch of tablets produced.
  • Reduction in press set up time.
  • Less tablet presses required to satisfy output – Less floor space required leading to more product produced per square meter.
  • All of the above leads to a reduction in overall plant running costs.

Die segments substitute the original standard turret die table and dies. I Holland segments, as with all our products, are produced tot he highest quality standards, and are 100% inspected and available to our customers with unrivalled delivery times. Detailed drawings supplied.

Designer Shaped Tooling

In addition to the standard tablet forms I Holland also manufacture designer shaped tablet punches and dies. These punches and dies can be used to highlight brand identity, as an anti-counterfeiting measure or for ease of recognition. Designer shaped punches and dies can also be used to make vitamin supplements more attractive to children (teddy bears, robots, dinosaurs, etc.) or to enhance the appeal of sweets; fruit shapes for flavoured candy for example.

Nutraceutical Tooling

Nutraceutical and homeopathic formulations can contain very high mineral content and therefore often exhibit severely abrasive characteristics. I Holland tooling can help producers of such products overcome these adverse formulations through the use of punches and dies made of specialist steels, treatments and coatings.

Detergent Tooling

Innovations in modern detergent technology, combined with advanced tablet design allow the compression of dishwashing and laundry powders into a convenient tablet form. In the tablet making process, these formulations bring with them their own unique challenges such as sticking and abrasion. Our range of tabletting tools can assist manufacturers to overcome these problems with specially developed designs, steels, treatments and coatings.

IMA Comprima Tooling

I Holland have developed the technology and expertise to manufacture competitively priced round, shaped and multi-tipped IMA Comprima tablet tooling for the full range of IMA Comprima tablet presses so there is no need to wait for OEM supply. These can be supplied in a range of steels and with specialised coatings and treatments where required.
