A tablet press is a mechanical device that compresses powder into tablets of uniform size and weight. A press can be used to manufacture tablets of a wide variety of materials, including pharmaceuticals, illicit drugs such as MDMA, cleaning products, and cosmetics. To form a tablet, the granulated material must be metered into a cavity formed by two punches and a die, and then the punches must be pressed together with great force to fuse the material together.

A tablet is formed by the combined pressing action of two punches and a die. In the first step of a typical operation, the bottom punch is lowered in the die creating a cavity into which the granulated feedstock is fed. The exact depth of the lower punch can be precisely controlled to meter the amount of powder that fills the cavity. The excess is scraped from the top of the die, and the lower punch is drawn down and temporarily covered to prevent spillage. Then, the upper punch is brought down into contact with the powder as the cover is removed. The force of compression is delivered by high pressure compression rolls which fuse the granulated material together into a hard tablet. After compression, the lower punch is raised to eject the tablet.

Tablet tooling design is critical to ensuring a robust tablet compression process. Considerations when designing pharmaceutical tablet compression tool design include tooling set, head flat, top head angle, top head radius, head back angle, and punch shank. As well as ensuring a single dose of drug, the tablet tooling is also critical in ensuring the size, shape, embossing and other physical characteristics of the tablet that are required for identification.
There are 2 types of tablet presses: single-punch and rotary tablet presses. Most high speed tablet presses take the form of a rotating turret that holds any number of punches. As they rotate around the turret, the punches come into contact with cams which control the punch's vertical position. Punches and dies are usually custom made for each application, and can be made in a wide variety of sizes, shapes, and can be customized with manufacturer codes and scoring lines to make tablets easier to break. Depending on tablet size, shape, material, and press configuration, a typical modern press can produce from 250,000 to over 1,000,000 tablets an hour.

E-manual about single punch press tablets making machine from A  to Z


1.Tablet machines are best installed either on a solid wooden bench or on concrete, using the bolts provided. 

The machine sits on feet and the height from the bottom of the machine to the work surface should be 600 mm. 

In the interests of safety the machine should be properly grounded before being put to use. 

Remove the rubber belt and connect the power.

Observe the machine carefully as it starts up to make sure rotation is in the correct direction – it should follow the same direction as the arrow on the pulley wheel.  If the direction of rotation is wrong, disconnect the power and reset the triangular belt.

Installing the dies

2. Installing the lower punch

Loosen the bolt on the lower punch.  

Turn the large pulley to raise the core rod to its highest position.

Insert the lower punch into the core rod hole making sure that the punch

screws align properly and can be inserted into the end.  Tighten the nut.

3.Installing the upper punch

Loosen the nut on the upper punch.  Insert the upper punch into the end of the upper punch rod.  Tighten the bolt. 

4.Installing the mold

Loosen the nut in the mold so that the mold lies flush in its cavity. 

Insert the lower punch into the cavity in the mold.   

Tighten the nut on the mold and check the mold is sitting flush.     

Turn the large pulley by hand to make the upper punch fit carefully into the mold casing.  Look out for undesired impact or friction.  In the event of either, loosen the screw on the mold platen. 

Adjust the mold platen so that the screw on the upper punch fits nicely into the die cavity.  Tighten the bolt in the die cavity.  No friction at this point means installation may proceed. 

5.Adjusting the spout

Turn the large pulley to make the lower punch rise to its highest position, and check the lower punch surface is flush – too high or too low will affect the tablets as they exit the machine. 

If it is not flush, loosen the butterfly screws and loosen the platen rotation gears so that the surfaces slip into alignment.  Tighten the butterfly screws.

Turn the large pulley by hand and run the machine empty for at least ten minutes.  If it runs normally, put in materials and run a pressure test. 

6.Adjusting depth

In this procedure the tablet weight is adjusted.

Loosen the butterfly screws and release the platen gear.

Adjust the gear by turning it to the left so that the lower punch rises.  The depth of the filling and the weight of the tablets will be reduced.  After this adjustment tighten the butterfly screws.

7.Adjusting the pressure

In this procedure the hardness of the pills is adjusted.

Loosen the knurling screw.  Make a downward adjustment in the eccentric copper sleeve.  The pressure will be increased and the pills will be harder.  Reverse the procedure to reduce tablet hardness.  After this adjustment tighten the screw and lock the copper sleeve.  Thus, adjustment of the dies is complete.

Start the motor and run a pressure test on a dozen tablets.  Check for weight, hardness and surface finish. 

8.Dismantling the die 

Dismantle the upper punch.  Loosen the nut.   Remove the punch.  If the punch is tight, pull out with your fingers taking care not to damage the edges of the punch shuttle.

Loosen the screw in the mold.  Loosen the screw in the lower punch, loosen   the butterfly screws and release the platen gear. 

Rotate the gear so that the next thrust of the core rod rises by about 10 millimeters.  Gently turn the large pulley to bring the next impulse to the top of the mold. If the mold is tight, remove it by hand but take care not to damage parts.

Remove the mold platen and then the mold.

9.Dismantling the lower punch

Rotate the fixed screw on the lower punch by hand to raise the core rod of the lower punch to its highest position.  Take out the punch by hand but take care not to damage the edges.

After dismantling the die the gears need to be adjusted.   

Lower the core rod on the lower punch by 10mm. 

Now turn the gear to raise the core rod to its highest position. The top should not be higher than the table of the mold.  (Do not overlook this step in order to avoid accidents later) 

Now you should still be able to rotate the screw of lower punch.

A step by step guide to dismantling and installation

10.Dismantling the mold platen

1.Take out the powder board.

When doing the installation load the upper punch first then the spindle.  Install the main shaft.

13.Dismantling the lower punch core rod:

Unscrew the screws on the lower punch.

Loosen the butterfly screws and gear platen.

Adjust the gears.

Lower the core rod of the lower punch

Remove from the fuselage under the bottom hole.

14.Installing the lower punch core rod

Reverse the order of the above procedure

15.Dismantling the large pulley, small gear and the bridge shaft

Take out the lower belt, the screws on the left and right of the bridge shaft and the platen.  With a mallet tap the large pulley to remove it from the bridge shaft.  Similarly, tap the small gear out with the mallet. 

16.Installing the large pulley, small gear and the bridge shaft

Reverse the order of the above procedure.


Two pairs of hands are required to dismantle the spindle.

First, remove the protective cover.

Remove the large gear to release the lifting cam, eccentric wheel and fastening screws.

Take out the cam.

Using the mallet gently knock the end of the shaft to remove it, taking care not to damage the shaft screw and holding the other end of the shaft at the same time.  Grip the eccentric shell, lift out the cam and slowly remove the spindle.

17.To install reverse the order of the above procedure.

Lubrication and Maintenance

Lubricating moving parts and friction surfaces will ensure normal operation of the machine and prolong the service life of important parts. 

So lubrication should be added to the oil cups, oil holes and friction surfaces before the tablet machine is used.

The machine should have an empty run first.

Oil should be added in good time. 

Do not add too much at one time or cause spillover as there is a risk of contamination. 


See lubrication table below: 



parts to be oiled




Spindle Oil Cup (2)


2 or 3 times each working day


Eccentric shell hole (pressure adjustment screw holes used)


2 or 3 times each working day


bridge axle Oil Cup 2 (rear fuselage)


2 or 3 times each working day


Lift cam groove


Check and add grease once every working day


Filling cam groove


Check every working day.  Grease as required.


Gear tooth surface


Check every working day.  Grease as required


oil hole of the upper punch core rod


Once every working day


Leverage of the swing pivot


Once every working day


surface of upper punch core rod


2 times each working day


Lifting rod surface


2 times each working day



1.Read the instructions carefully when setting the machine up for the first time, or when using the machine for the first time.

2.This machine must only run in one direction.  (see the arrow on the hand wheel)  Reversing the direction will damage parts.  Do not neglect this point particularly when tablets are being adjusted.

3.Adjusting the belt is done through two screws. Following an adjustment, careful fine tuning is necessary.


When using with electricity, the upper punch needs to be in its highest position before the machine is turned on.  The aim is that the upper punch has maximum inertia or it is very easy for the machine to stick which can lead to breaks.


What to do if the machine stops running.

1.Immediately turn off the power to prevent the motor from burning.

2.If the situation is not serious, the machine can be hand cranked if necessary. 

3.If the situation is serious, remove the shaft of the upper punch. Lift it out manually to reduce the pressure on it. Take the pills get out by hand gear and re-adjust the hardness of tablets.
