Multi tip tooling

Multi-tip tooling applied by ASCORP. is a cost effective way to significantly increase the capacity of produced tablets without investing in the new tablet presses by reducing:

  • labour costs
  • maintenance costs
  • investment costs
  • energy costs

Multi-Tip Tooling

Multi-tip tooling is the ideal solution for increasing your tablet compression production capacity without adding shifts or bringing more machines on line.

Depending on the tablet size and the capacity of the punch body, multi-tips allow you to multiply your production output — smaller tablets or larger punches that can fit more than two tips triple, quadruple or further multiply output in the same run time.

Additional upfront investment for multi-tip tool manufacturing is quickly recovered due to the increase in tablet production. Over the life of the tool, multi-tip tooling can result in a substantial cost savings.

Technical Tip

Are you experiencing delamination problems due to a lack of time-under-compression? By using multiple-tip tablet tooling you can recapture some or all of the lost production — simply slow the machine down and add tips to your punch.

Multi-tip tooling can be custom designed with the following options:

Multi-tipped tooling is available in two different configurations:

  • assembly construction - composite
  • solid construction - monoblock 

The choice between those two options depends on the application, customer requirements, internal cleaning procedures and technical feasibility (the tablet dimensions and number of tips).

By using multi-tipped tooling the number of tablets produced per one turret revolution should be theoretically the multiple of the number of tips in the punch. However, due to the slightly lower turret speed connected with the necessity of the filling of more die holes, the real capacity can sometimes be lower. Depending on the product characteristic the measured capacity increase can vary but the mean values are ca. 1.5 for double-tiptooling, 2.8 for four-tip tooling and 4.5 for six-tip tooling.
