Number of dies required

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 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 moulds 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.

TDP Punch Dies in Use

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.

As far as choosing your punch dies goes, there are just a few things to bear in mind. If you have an official TDP tablet press from LFA, there will be no difficulty – simply select the TDP punch die design you like, and the correct size, and you can be sure the die will be compatible with your TDP tablet press. If you didn’t buy your tablet press from us, be aware that other manufacturers often sell non-official versions of the TDP tablet press range, and these may use different types of tooling. Before purchasing a punch die for a non-official TDP tablet press, it is important to check that it will definitely fit your machine. You can do this easily by measuring your existing dies. The measurements you need are:

  1. Diameter of the centre ring
  2. Depth of the centre ring
  3. Total length of the die
  4. Length of the neck of the die
  5. Diameter of the bottom end of the top and bottom die

Selecting the right size

It is very easy to choose the right size punch die for your TDP tablet press. Simply remember that the difference between a TDP 0, TDP 1.5, TDP 5 and TDP 6s lies in the size of the “centre rings”. Measure this accurately and choosing the correct size will be simple.


The dies for sale on this web page are for our range of TDP tablet presses and the Vice Handheld Tablet Press. If you need tooling for the rotary presses in our RTP range, or for EU/TSM specification presses, we supply those too – please follow these links [ ] [ ].

We are also able to make B, BB or D tooling for a range of other tablet presses. 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.

Our View

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.

Please Note

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 2-6 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.
