How to maintain compression tools? Adamus has developed a Tool Maintenance Program for punches and dies.
Installation / uninstallation of tooling.
Tooling should be cleaned to remove residuals of powder and possible sintered product residues.
Optical assessment of working surfaces of the tooling.
Small damages and traces of corrosion should be removed from the tools if found.
Giving the work surface a smoothness to avoid common tableting problems.
After repairing and polishing, re-cleaning to remove any residual of polishing / repairing agents.
The measurement of punch tools is crucial to the production process, it allows you to verify whether the dimensions of punches and dies are within the tolerance limits, and thus ensure optimal tablet production.
For longer periods of storing, tooling shall be protected from moisture and aggressive environments.
With dedicated cabinets or containers, avoiding the risks resulting from mechanical damage and direct environment impact.
