Tablet Compression Tooling: Land Or No Land?

By Bill Turner


Tablet land is the narrow, horizontal surface perpendicular to the tablet’s periphery, creating a junction between the tablet’s periphery and a convex cup. Land adds strength and durability to the punch tip. However, it can be perceived as making it difficult to coat the tablet, which is not always true. 

There are many considerations when designing tablet land, especially when it comes to the width. Land adds strength and durability to the punch tip, so adding land to the tablet design will reduce the likelihood of punch tip edge deflection as it increases the strength and durability of the tip edge. In this article, learn more about the holistic approach to designing tablet land.
