As one of the worlds leading tablet tooling manufacturers I Holland has been instrumental in introducing many innovative and unique developments to the industry including the ‘Rotating Head’, ‘Universal Seal Groove’, and is author of the industry’s leading global tooling standard the Eurostandard.

I Holland have been leading the way in the production of Multi-tip tools for over 25 years; this experience has culminated in today’s impressive array of configuration options to suit many products in several industries including: Pharmaceutical; Nutraceutical; Detergent; Cosmetic; Veterinary; Confectionery and various industrial applications.

I Holland understands the demand for increased productivity within modern tablet production. We are always striving to ensure that our punches and dies are at the very leading edge of tooling design, allowing our customers to retain a competitive edge. To assist our partners in their quest for increased capacity we developed our Multi-Tip and Micro-Tip range of Multiple Tip tooling.

Many PharmaCote® treatments& coatings and PharmaGrade® steels can be used in conjunction with multiple-tip designs in order to create a robust tooling solution that is capable of being both incredibly productive and durable at the same time. I Holland also offers very competitive lead times on these tooling systems.
This document is a reflection of the current designs and configurations available. I Holland Research and Development and design teams are constantly working on new solutions.

Benefits of Multiple Tip Tooling

  • Increase in productivity – Number  of tablets per turret rotation is multiplied by the number of
  • No large capital outlay on new tablet presses mean that higher tooling costs are easily outweighed by increased
  • Reduction in   press   run-time  per  output  of  tablets   means  that less  maintenance   is   required per batch of tablets produced.
  • Reduction in press setup-time per output of
  • Less tablet presses required to satisfy output therefore requiring less floor space leading to more product produced per Sq
  • Fewer tools require less storage space leaving room for production
  • All of thesepointsleadtoareduction in overall plant running

Tablet Press Considerations

  • The upper section of the turret must have This ensures the correct fixing of the upper punch.
  • Modification to the feeder paddles may be required due to increased fill requirements
  • Tablet press monitoring systems can be adjusted to monitor the multi- tablet outputs as
  • Calibration punch may be required for single sort rejection system (available upon request)
  • Granulation flow must be working effectively due to the increased fill requirement
  • The tablet press should be in good working order and critical dimensions of the turret (punch guides and die pockets) should all be within tolerance
  • Tablet diameter below 3mm may require reinforced tips, and the press will need to be fitted with restricted fill cams
