Understanding protective tablet tool coatings



Coating technology has advanced considerably over the years. When it is used in conjunction with high quality tooling steel, coatings are increasingly seen as an acceptable means of solving production problems. They allow for better tabletting efficiency and output by reducing the requirement for tools to be taken out of production for additional cleaning and maintenance work. 

This article explains how with the correct coating or treatment in place, some of the biggest challenges that delay production, such as corrosion, wear and sticking issues, can be avoided.
