The main requirements for steels used in the manufacturing of compression tooling are the wear resistance, good resistance to chipping, high compressive strength, good through hardening properties, high hardness after high temperature tempering and good stability in hardening.
ADAMUS S.A. uses steel grades which fulfill those requirements and purchase them only from world leading steel producers.
Besides the standard steel grades used by all compression tooling suppliers, ADAMUS S.A. offers a series of different specialty steels which can solve the tableting problems with abrasive, sticky and corrosive products as well as products which requires the higher compression forces than recommended due to the tablet size and dimensions. Such steels with the combination of different coatings, the right surface finish and very narrow dimensional tolerances make the tooling supplied by ADAMUS S.A. one of the best in the world.
