repair staging

The repair stage allows the user to rectify minor damage to the tooling before polishing. Minor damage and corrosion can be repaired using a motorised chuck.


If damage is excessive, tools must be replaced. In all cases it is important to remember that repair to punches and dies should only be carried out when absolutely necessary as this can potentially change tooling dimensions resulting in other tabletting problems.

Tooling Maintenance

Regular maintenance and repair work will help to extend tooling life, maintain tablet image and definition, optimise tooling productivity and prevent tooling breakages.

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.
