¿Cuál es la diferencia entre la TDP 0, TDP 1.5, TDP 5 y TDP 6s?

Esta es una pregunta muy común, ya que las máquinas son muy similares, pero tienen diferentes puntos fuertes.

La manera más fácil de dividir las prensas compactas sería en máquina automática y máquina manual.

La TDP 0 es el modelo manual y requiere que usted mueva la manija al lateral de la prensa para producir las tabletas. Esto quiere decir que tiene la menor cantidad de presión y por ello es el modelo de nivel de entrada de la gama TDP.

La TDP 1.5, TDP 5 y TDP 6s son todas máquinas automáticas, ya que son impulsadas por un motor eléctrico. La TDP 1.5 es el modelo de nivel de entrada porque tiene menos presión (15kn) y está limitada en el tamaño de los comprimidos puede producir. La TDP de 5 es nuestro modelo más popular y puede producir aproximadamente 5.000 tabletas por hora. La TDP 5 tiene 50kn de presión y puede fabricar comprimidos de hasta 22 mm de diámetro. La TDP 6s es la más superior de la gama y es más adecuada para tabletas con formas irregulares. La TDP 6s también tiene un poco más de presión que la TDP 5 (60kn) y se adapta mejor a ciertos productos que no se compactan tan fácilmente.

¿Que entrenamiento proveéis con esta máquina?

Podemos entrenarle en nuestra oficina en Bicester. Durará más o menos un día.

¿Cuál es su prensa más popular?

La TDP 5. Sin duda esta ha sido la más popular desde hace bastante tiempo. Tenemos clientes que han vuelto y han actualizado su equipo comprando una RTP 9 (normalmente tras unos años) pero la mayoría de clientes empiezan con una TDP 5.

Can I attach a motor to the TDP0?

no, sorry it just is not possible.

What is the maximum pressure of a TDP 0?

The maximum pressure of a TDP 0 is 3.1 kN

What material is the TDP 0 made of? What type of coating is on the machine? Paint/Powder coating?

"The machine is made from a number of materials. The hopper is made from sheet steel, the tooling is made from S7 steel, the boot is cast from brass and has a chrome plate coating, the base is cast from FC250 and coated in an enamel paint. "

How do I set the pressure correctly?

The upper drift pin assembly is used to adjust the pressure. You can watch a video on this here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=pc2gfDU3NiQ

Here is another video which tells you how to set up a TDP ready to press: www.youtube.com/watch?v=4dTscUdRJzQ

Do I get a die with the machine or do I have to buy it separately? Which size/shape are they?

Yes, you do get a die with the machine. Every machine comes fitted with a die.

If you would like you can get this customised with your logo or lettering but it takes 6-8 weeks.

Or, we have a standard 8mm round, bevelled edge with breaker installed in the machines in stock.

Where is this machine made and shipped from?

All of our machines are made by us, in Taiwan and are shipped to you from our nearest office.

We have offices in the UK, USA, Germany and Taiwan.

Because they are made by us we are able to control quality and give you the best support possible and because they are shipped from your local office it reduces wait times, avoids customs clearance and ensures you have support in your time zone in a language that is convenient to you.

Can I make shaped tablets? Or with a logo?

Yes, you can.

You are able to make any shaped tablet up to the maximum diameter of this tablet press which can be found under the "specifications" tab.

We are able to customise tooling to include lettering, numbering and logos. If you would like customised tooling please fill out our custom tooling form: www.lfamachines.com/custom-tooling

How many tablets can the TDP 0 make per hour?

We have been able to get speeds of around 30-50 tablets per minute, but the machine will only run for as long as you have the energy to keep it turning.

It is hard to keep up 30-50 tablets per minute for long.

If you need to make more than this then we recommended the TDP1.5 or TDP 5.

Does the machine need to be bolted down? Does it come with bolts to fix it to a surface?

No, it does not need to be bolted into position but we do recommend it. If the machine is not secured in position by bolts or another method then it is more likely to shake a bolt loose, resulting in varying tablet weights. On top of this, the vibrations are likely to make the machine sound louder.

The machine does not come with bolts because we do not know the thickness of your surface.

What is the maximum weight I can have in a tablet with a TDP 0?

This will really depend on the bulk density of your tablets. Watch this video for more information

The best way to describe this is with a trick question: What weighs more, a ton of feathers or a ton of lead?

The answer is neither since they both weigh a ton, but their dimensions are different. This is the same with powders. You can have some that are like sand and some that are light and fluffy, so compressing them to the same size does not always mean that you will yield the same weight results because their particles hold weight differently.

If I am the new business beginner, I am not sure which machine I should go with, TDP 0, TDP 1.5, TDP 5 or TDP 6s?

Yes, this is a common question we get asked so we have to tools to help you.

A video on the differences between the different TDP's www.lfatabletpresses.com/videos/tdp-range

The Right Machine For You Questionnaire - https://www.lfatabletpresses.com/tablet-press-questionnaire

Between these two you should get a much better idea and if not please do reach out, let us know what you are making and how many you need to make and we will help guide you through the process.

Are the TDPs CE Certified?

No, the TDPs are not CE certified. To pass, they would have to be installed in a protective cage which we do not provide.  

Can I make food grade products on this machine? Can the it make pharmaceutical-grade tablets?

Yes, the contact surfaces are all food and pharmaceutical safe.

They are made from a combination of, stainless steel, chrome coated brass and the steel used for your tooling (often S7).

As such they are all compliant with most rules for food or pharma manufacturing.

We strongly recommend that you do check your local laws as they do vary from state to state and country to country. If in doubt reach out and we will be happy to find out.

What packaging is the TDP 0 delivered in? How many pieces does the TDP 0 come in? Does the machine come assembled or do I need to assemble it?
What PPE equipment is needed with this machine?

We would recommend using, goggles, dust mask and gloves at a minimum but you may require a lot more depending on the products that you are working with and your local health and safety laws.

How often do I need to grease the machine and which parts particularly of the machine should I lubricate?

We would recommend cleaning down the machine and leaving it re-greased after every use. This will ensure the longest life possible.

Here is a video on cleaning the TDP 5.


When greasing the machine, avoid getting any near the tooling or pressing surfaces as this will get into your tablets and affect your powders.

Grease the top cam well, then apply a small amount to the upper drift pin assembly and the lower timing rod.

With regards to the types of products that we would recommend, this would depend on your product. If you are making food grade products then you would want to use a grease that was NSF approved. If you are making a very caustic sodium based product however, then you would likely need to use a product that is resistant to salts.

More information on greasing your machine can be found here:TDP 5 Lubrication Schedule

Do all TDPs and VICE take the same tooling?

Yes, the VICE, TDP 0, TDP 1.5, TDP 5 and the TDP 6s from LFA all take what is known as Universal TDP Tooling.

It is important to know two things. Firstly, the TDP Universal Tooling came into effect in 2018 machines brought from LFA before this time may have slightly different sizes.

We always recommend checking the size of your tooling before placing your order. Secondly, a number of companies make unofficial TDP tablet presses.

They do not always conform to the same sizes, tolerance or quality of LFA TDP’s or tooling. If you got your press from someone else other than LFA we are not able to guarantee that our tooling will fit.

What is the length of the warranty? And what are the terms and conditions?

The length of the warranty on any of the TDP range machines is 1 year from the date of purchase.

This warranty covers spare parts and excludes tooling and maintenance labour from LFA for machine services.

When you receive your machine, you will be given a serial number that will also be stamped onto the press. You will be able to use this if you ever need to make a warranty claim.

Full details on the LFA warranty can be found here: Warranty | We Have You Covered

Which parts wear most often and should I keep regular stock of?

The most common wear part on the machine is the boot. This comes in direct contact with the die cavity and can be hit or chipped by the upper and lower punches. This is made of brass so that the tooling is protected in the event of a collision. Because of this, the boot is soft and will wear over time. If anything, we recommend keeping a spare to avoid losing production time.

We also recommend that you keep at least 1 spare set of tooling as this can break or wear over time.


LFA does aim to hold all major spare parts and tooling in stock so that they are ready to ship out in the event that you need them. The lead times on sold out parts, however, can take up to 6-8 weeks.

Can I come to one of your facility for training with my own formula?

Yes, you can but there are a number of requirements that we need to fulfil first.

You will need to contact our team and provided them with a copy of all of your MSDS for all of the components of your mix.

We need to have a good understanding of your business and the challenges you are facing.

You will also need to book an appointment with the office that you would like to visit.

For more information please get in contact with the team: https://www.lfatabletpresses.com/contact

Can I get support from LFA if I face problems with making tablets?

Yes. Very easily.

We have free lifetime technical support for all machines sold by LFA.

Just contact us with your machine serial number and we would be happy to help you with any problems.

Can I order custom tooling?

Yes. You can order custom tooling here

What particle size will work on this machine?

As with any tablet press, it is good to have a particle size of around 80-60 mesh.

This would be large enough to avoid large losses and small enough to flow well through the machine. If the powder is finer than this then you are going to experience a larger level of loss.

If the particles are larger than this then it might not flow through the machine well and get caught as it is trying to enter into the die bore.

This being said every powder is very different and you will need to do tries to work out what is best for them.

What technical support and training comes with this machine?

There are a number of ways we are able to support you:

  • Every machine comes with a full manual to be emailed to you after purchase.
  • There is a large range of video tutorials to teach you how to use the press.
  • The machine comes with lifetime technical support, you can call, Skype or email to get answers to your questions and problems.
  • We also offer free training at any one of our regional offices.

If after all of this you are still struggling to use your press then we are able to come to you.

This is a service we do charge for.

More information on this can be found here: https://www.lfatabletpresses.com/services

Can you set this machine up for an X mg tablet weight?

Yes, the TDP range all have a weight adjustment for it.

It is the bottom of the two cogs on the lower drift pin assembly.

Here is a link to a video showing you how to tune up the TDP 5: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4dTscUdRJzQ

It is important to know that the exact weight of each tablet will vary from tablet to tablet.

A well-homogenized mix that has a consistent granule size should be able to achieve an accuracy of +/- 3% or less.

Would it help if we granulate the mix first?

There are three reasons to granulate your formula:

1. To improve the flowability of your formulation.

2. To make your formulation more compressible.

3. To ensure a consistent spread of API throughout the formulation.

If you would like to find out if your mix needs granulation then we do have a tablet formulation service available.

You can find out more about the tablet formulation service here: https://www.lfatabletpresses.com/services

What should we do if we don't want to use any excipients, especially binders?

Get a capsule filler.

You will not be able to make tablets.

Click here for more information https://www.lfacapsulefillers.com/

Do I need a license to own this machine?

That depends on the country you are located in.

In the EU and UK no. You do not need anything to buy the press.

In the USA we have to file a piece of paperwork with the federal government when we sell the press.

We, however, do all of this paperwork for you and do not need to do anything.

The only countries that require a licence as far as we know are Canada and Australia.

If you are located in Canada then we recommend that you contact Health Canada prior to placing your order. Details regarding the import process can be found at the following link: Importing and registering pill presses (designated devices)

The document you need to fill out and file for a purchase originating in Australia is called a B712 it can be found at: https://www.abf.gov.au/form-listing/forms/b712.pdf If you would like to speak with one of our team about this then please get in contact.

How difficult is it to make a full rotation on the machine at maximum pressure?

This is a hard question as it is done on personal strength and the pressure is adjustable. If you think about it, it is as hard as possible before you can't make the rotation any more. This is the same as a TDP with a motor, the max pressure is as much as the motor can exert before the press jams.

Can I use multi-tip tooling in the TDP0?

Technically you can use multi-tip tooling with the TDP0, but as the maximum diameter size is 10mm, all of the punches would have to fit into this space resulting in very small tablets. They would have to be around 3-4 mm because below this they would be too small and above this, they would be too big. On top of this multi-tip tooling is incredibly expensive. It would be worth buying a DTP 25 for this type of tooling.

Will the parts to my TDP 0 fit a TDP 1.5 or TDP 5?

There are a few interchangeable parts if both machines have been made by LFA Machines. From the TDP 0, this includes the tooling, the lower drift pin assembly, and its corresponding set of cogs.

The most important fit to check for is tooling that you may have previously purchased, because the base plates have been redesigned to fit the universal standard tooling die.

More information on the TDP Universal Tooling Standard can be found here: Tooling | Punch & Dies for TDP Pill Presses

All other parts are custom to this press.

What are the functions of the lower punch gears on the TDP0? How do I set the pressure correctly?

These gears are known as cogs and are used to tune the press by setting the tablet weight and ejection height. The upper drift pin assembly is used to adjust the pressure.

You can watch a video on this here:Setup the Fill Depth, Punch Pressure & Ejection Height on a TDP 5 Tablet Press

What are the ideal conditions and powders for the TDP 0?

The ideal condition for manufacturing tablets using the TDP 0 is a cool, clean, and dry environment. For the best results, we recommend using directly compressible or granulated powders.

What type of table or surface should I put the TDP 0 on?

We recommend a strong and sturdy table that can hold more than 24kg, since you will be operating the machine on it. It is also useful if you can bolt the machine down or use a set of clamps to secure it in place.

Does the machine have to be bolted down? Does the TDP 0 come with bolts to fix it to a surface?

The TDP 0 does not have to be bolted down, but we highly recommend it. The machine does not come with bolts, but this can be determined based on the thickness of your work surface.

To calculate the length of the bolt required, first measure the thickness of your surface, and then add 35mm for the thickness of the TDP 0 base and the thread of the nut and the washers. You will then need to order 4 x M6 bolts inthe length that you calculated as well as 4 x M6 nuts and 8 x M6 washers.

This will be all you require to bolt down the press securely.

What is the maximum tablet diameter on a TDP 0?

The maximum tablet diameter possible on a TDP0 is 10mm, but this will vary depending on the properties of your tablet mix.

Are all parts of TDP 0 replaceable? If I want to take out one part of TDP 0 for cleaning, is it possible?

Yes, the TDP 0 is an extremely simple machine. You will find that you can strip it down and clean it with very little effort.

Can we use a larger hopper than the one that comes with the TDP0?

Yes, you can, but we do not sell larger hoppers. Also, since this machine is manual, it might not be helpful because of the time it takes to empty a full hopper of powder. Because of this, we recommend refilling your hopper as you go to avoid particle separation.

Since this is a portable machine, what happens if this is dropped when transporting it? Is it the type of machine that breaks easily?

It is a very sturdy machine, however, if it arrives in less than perfect condition, please contact us and we will make sure to get you back on track.

How long can the TDP0 be used without interruption?

The TDP can operate as long as the user can rotate the arm on the machine.

What are the best cleaning products for the TDP0? How often should I clean it?

This will depend greatly on the products you are pressing. If you are making food or pharmaceutical products, then you are going to need food or pharmaceutical safe cleaners.

When you clean the machine, make sure that it is completely dried and oiled afterwards to avoid any rusting of key parts.

More information on cleaning and maintenance for the TDP 0 can be found here:

Cleaning Matrix - TDP 0

TDP 0 Lubrication Schedule

Will the parts to my TDP 0 fit on a TDP 1.5?

Yes, some parts are interchangeable if both machines have been made by LFA Machines. The upper drift pin assembly and the lower drift pin assembly will fit.

The most important fit to check for is tooling that you may have previously purchased, because the base plates have been redesigned to fit the universal standard tooling die.

More information on the TDP Universal Tooling Standard can be found here: Tooling | Punch & Dies for TDP Pill Presses

Are parts interchangeable with the rest of the TDP range?

Yes. Some of them. There are a number of parts that are able to be changed between the different TDP ranges. This includes the tooling, a lot of the upper and lower drift pin assemblies and the boot bolt and spring.

Is there a system that allows customers to check the warranty period of their machines?

In order to determine whether or not your machine is still under warranty you will need to call or email the office the machine was purchased from and provide the serial number.

The dies have become discoloured. Is this because of corrosion?

Yes, this could be down to corrosion or due to oxidation of your product. We would highly recommend taking your tooling out of the press and cleaning it at the end of every production run.

We would also recommend polishing the tooling to keep the surfaces clean and less likely to cause picking or capping.

The screw that holds the boot was damaged by the boot set screw. Did this happen because its knurled nut was tight against the base plate?

Yes, this can happen because the boot bolt and spring have been screwed too far into the press or have not been screwed in far enough. It is important to make sure that the bolt is in the correct position before over tightening the set screw.

It should be pointed out that it will not affect that operation of the press if it is damaged. You can still use your press as long as it screws in.
