Stokes Model 526 Tablet Press

Featuring a dual-action mechanism, the Stokes Model 526 and 526S are uniquely designed compacting presses. They employ an eccentric motion from a bottom cam while simultaneously applying pressure from the top. This dual-direction pressure application ensures a consistent density gradient across the product. Ideal for creating compacts such as gears, rings, discs, and bushings, these presses are versatile in working with a broad range of materials.


The Stokes Models 526 and 526S set a new standard in compacting press technology with their dual-action mechanism. Unique in their ability to apply pressure from both the top and the bottom simultaneously, these machines ensure a consistent density gradient across the product. This feature is particularly critical for applications where the structural integrity of the compacted material is paramount. The presses' versatility is evident in their capability to manufacture various compacts like gears, rings, discs, and bushings from a wide range of materials, making them invaluable in diverse industrial settings such as automotive, aerospace, and general manufacturing. Designed for efficiency, the Stokes Models 526 and 526S presses enhance the speed of the production process without compromising on the quality of the output. Their user-friendly interface and straightforward maintenance procedures contribute to minimal downtime, maintaining consistent operational efficiency. Safety is a paramount consideration in the design of these presses. Built with numerous safeguards, they provide a secure working environment, especially critical given the high-pressure nature of compacting processes. Moreover, the robust construction of these presses assures long-term durability and reliability, even under rigorous industrial use.
