Punch Tip Options:
Short Upper Punch Tip Straights
A short upper punch tip straight is a tooling option primarily for tablet presses with lubrication seals. The seals prevent lubricant contamination and black specks on tablets by keeping product granulation separate.
Undercut Upper Punch Tip
An undercut on a punch tip is created by decreasing the tip diameter behind a tip straight. Applying an undercut on an upper punch tip allows for better retention of dust cups and bellows. An undercut can also decrease the seal between the tip and dust cup, possibly allowing leakage of lubricants.
Bakelite relief is an undercut applied to the lower punch tip only and provides a deeper, sharper relief that aids in removing granulation adhered to the die wall. If the product is not removed, binding of the lower punch in the die can occur.
