Tablet press tooling category

do we need to consider the tablet hardness and thickness while selecting the B,D or BB tooling?
or the tablet size is the only criteria?

Tooling is with respect to tablet size.

Yes, Mr. Zeeshan,
D tooling die and punches are usually have thick diameter or have greater diameter of their body as well as the tip of the punches and also dies have greater outer diameter compare to B tooling which make D type tooling are more suitable for big size tablets as the tip of the punch is more border than B tooling.


D type tooling also give more pressure than b type.
Large wt tabs are compressed on D tooling with better hardness.
