Wilson Tool offers three types of punch heads: TSM Standard, TSM Dome and European Dome. A domed head has several benefits, including increased dwell time and the speed at which compression is reached. Domed heads are available in both European and TSM.
Matching the machine to head type is a critical step in tool development. Differences can consist of having an angle profile versus a domed profile. Or the inside angle difference of the TSM versus the EU. Head thickness and final overall length are also determined by head selection. Extended head flat also available.
Each tablet formula, size and application varies – punches need to vary to account for these differences.
