Tablet presses are used to manufacture a variety of products, such as pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, veterinarian products, confectionary, and industrial tablets. Each industry faces unique challenges due to the properties inherent to any particular formulation. A variety of steel types/coatings, tool design modifications/options, and tablet design recommendations can work together to increase tool life and improve tablet quality.

The most common challenge with nutraceutical products is abrasive wear on the tooling, due to the nature of many ingredients in nutraceutical tablets, such as calcium, magnesium and zinc. This abrasion leads to degradation of the cup finish, which may result in potential sticking and poor tablet quality.
