We will make a custom low profile die sets to your specifications. Choose your inner diameter (ID) and Outer diameter of your ring pellet, as well as the sleeve height and material. We will make the other parts to match.
All our low profile die sets are custom as we rarely make the same OD and ID combination twice. The die set works very much like our typical pellet press dies, with the addition of a central pin which creates a ring shaped cavity. The central pin fits inside the base plate and the spacers and plunger have holes in to accommodate the central pin. During pressing there is no irect pressing of the central pin so it remains a bystander during use. At the end, the base plate is removed and we include a specially made custom ejection pin for removal of the central pin. Once removed the ring shaped pellet can be removed as with our typical sets.
