Our TDP punch dies are hard wearing, high quality, precision made pieces that will press the crisp, clean edged tablets you are looking for. Crafted from durable stainless steel, with low corrosion properties and the toughness required to last, these tablet press punches and dies will produce numerous batches of perfect tablets during the course of their working life, and offer strong resistance to chipping and flaking.
Whether you use your TDP pill press for commercial production runs, in a hospital, in a research or industrial laboratory, or just for small scale applications, you have invested a substantial sum in a precision instrument capable of producing attractive, pharmaceutical grade tablets. To get the most out of your investment, it is essential that you fit it with top quality moulds.
Given the repeated impacts and high pressure a pill press die must cope with, poorly made pins can corrode, break, or degrade, leading to low quality output and wastage.
The build quality of our die sets is not the only distinguishing feature of our TDP punch die range. We also offer an unbeatable selection of shapes, sizes and outlines. From lozenges to rectangles to pentagons, hearts, opals and arcs, and a whole array of geometric shapes, either smooth edged or bevelled, these TDP punch dies cover every conceivable requirement. Whatever size, shape and format of tablet you have in mind, the chances are we have a die to make it. In the unlikely event that you don’t see what you are looking for here, please enquire. We can make custom dies to your specification.
A high quality, durable tablet press die soon pays for itself thanks to its long life and high efficiency. Unlike cheap dies that quickly degrade, flake or chip, our range of TDP pill press dies will stay the course. They are corrosion resistant and easy to look after. As long as they are kept dry and clean, these dies have an outstanding ability to produce large volumes of perfect tablets during the course of their working life.
Because our TDP tablet press dies are manufactured to the highest specifications, from the moment you hold them in your hand you can tell that they are solid and durable. They have a clean striking surface and a quick, easy action when it comes to fitting.
The dies for sale on this web page are for our range of TDP tablet presses and the Vice Handheld Tablet Press. If you require RTP tooling for the LFA rotary tablet press range, or for presses with EU or TSM specification tooling, we supply those too.
If you need tooling for a press that was not supplied by LFA then please get in touch, and we will do our best to help.
We try hard to hold all our punch dies in stock at all times. However, due to the incredible selection of shapes and sizes that we offer, and to the unpredictable nature of customer demand, occasionally we may be out of stock of a particular item. Some dies are only available to order. Where this applies, we can have them manufactured specially for you in as little as 2-6 weeks.
Whatever your tablet press tooling requirement, and whatever the urgency, it is always worth your while getting in touch to see how we can help.
As of 2018 LFA is introducing the TDP® Universal Tooling Standard. Under this new standard all TDPs will use the same type of punch and dies for their tooling.
The new measurements are as follows.
|Specification||Die Width (mm)||Die Depth (mm)||Punch Length (mm)|
|TDP® Universal Standard||37||22||42|
After getting feedback from our customers we decided to find a common tooling size to is that it came with a separate tooling specification for each machine.
If you are looking to order punch and die sets for machines purchased before the switch to the new specification of tooling we have produced a guide below.
|Tooling Type||Die Width (mm)||Die Depth (mm)||Punch Length (mm)|
To measure which type of tooling you have, it is important to use calibrated callipers. Simply measure the die depth and width as shown below. All official LFA TDP® punches are 42mm tall for both the upper and lower punches.
PLEASE NOTE: Tooling specifications of non official LFA TDPs will sometimes vary. To avoid productions delays please always check the tooling specifications before ordering.
Matching your TDP tablet press with a solidly crafted punch die ensures that you get all the performance and durability you bought the press for in the first place. Whether for commercial, research or personal applications, it has never been easier to produce durable, attractive tablets that are beautifully formed and stand out as unique.
Thanks to the outstanding range of high quality, affordable, and easy to use TDP tablet presses, creating tablets is more accessible than ever before. The TDP format has gained such popularity that many other tablet presses use TDP compatible dies. This makes it possible to offer an exceptional range of top quality moulds with striking finishes, and to offer them at a very reasonable price.

We try to hold all of our punch dies in stock at all times. However due to the amount of shapes and sizes that we have to offer, some times we have to have them specially made for you. This means that occasionally punch dies will take 6-8 weeks whilst they are being manufactured for you.
If you need to receive your tablet press tooling immediately it is worth getting in contact to check availability.
If you don't usually work in millimetres here is a table to help you convert to and from imperial measurements.
