B Size Tooling

B size tooling is available in a wide variety of standard shapes and can also be customized to your specific application and design. The upper punch and lower punch come with S-7 standard steel but are also available in alternate steels, to help you ensure the best in performance and production based on your tablet needs. Dies come with standard D2 steel and are also available in a wide variety of steel options.

Additional Features

Other features that need to be considered when ordering punch tooling include the head design, keying requirements and tip relief. For dies, review taper type requirements. See pages 10 and 11 for additional selection details.


Tool steels and surface treatments help to increase tooling performance. Additionally, a high polish finish can increase tooling life.

• Steel Options: A2, D2, DC-53, D3, M2 PM-M4, PM-3V, Carbide and 440C
• Surface Treatment Options: Chrome Plating, Chromium Nitride, Wearbeater, Optima® and Slip-Max®

We manufacture both traditional tooling and tooling for high-throughput machines. ​High-throughput machines require tooling that is manufactured to tolerances more stringent than interchangeable tooling. 

We adhere to the Tableting Specification Manual (TSM) guidelines regarding the design and manufacture of tablet tooling, which involve maintaining very tight tolerances.

We maintain a large inventory of steels and semi-finished stock for rapid delivery. If you frequently use tooling that is outside of our standard stock, however, please make us aware of your usage and we will be happy to stock additional sets on site. These items will be made available at no additional charge to you.

If you require specially engineered tablet press tooling, our design team will customize a solution to meet the demands of your application.
