Adding taper to a die can help minimize capping or delamination of tablets. The increased space at the opening of the die allows air to escape faster and creates a gentler decompression of the tablet during ejection.
Wilson Tool applies the Protection Shoulder groove to the outside of all our dies. This design ensures that any burr caused by the Die Lock Screw will not score the die pocket.
Double taper dies provide all the same benefits as a single taper but with twice the benefit. Adding taper to both ends of the die provides two working ends on one tool. When the first side is no longer usable simply flip the die over and you have a new land area.
