contamination during the tabletting process can cause costly manufacturing
problems. 'Black Spots' on tablets resulting in high numbers of
rejected tablets, increased wear of punch guides and tightening
of upper punches can result in excessive machine down time and high
Punch Bellows are designed to prevent guideway and tablet contamination
during the tablet compression process, a vast improvement over traditional
dust caps used in the pharmaceutical, confectionery and allied industries.
risk of oil contamination from the machines lubrication system is
reduced when Bellows are fitted onto upper punches forming a flexible
seal. This product has been developed for Euro 'B' and 'D' type
punches, which have the Holland Universal seal grooves. Once the
punches are positioned in the turret, a simple operation of pushing
the bellows over the punch tip and onto the barrel, results in the
Bellows forming an excellent seal to protect against product contamination.
Bellows are manufactured in High Tear Strength silicone, coloured
Blue, in compliance with F.D.A. approved regulations and conforming
to ISO 9000 quality standards.
of the bellows will improve the punch performance within the press
by reducing the amount of contamination in the punch guide, and
help improve the life of the tooling.
