Mate's SuperMax tool coatingClick image to enlarge

Mate Precision Tooling has introduced a new tool coating that it says outperforms currently available premium coatings by two to eight times.

SuperMax provides a hard, wear resistant and lubricious coating and acts as a barrier between the punch and the sheet metal to improve stripping and extend tool life, says Mate.

A proprietary coating, it provides more hits between sharpening, which reduces machine downtime. SuperMax also reduces galling, slug pulling and corner breakdown enhancing the quality and efficiency of the punching process.

The coating is applied using the latest nano-layer technology. It is a harder, denser film that greatly increases wear resistance and a much lower friction coefficient of approximately 20 per cent. This lower friction means less heat build-up, less galling (adhesion) and much longer tool life.

SuperMax works well on Mate’s M4PM, M2 and Durasteel punches in round, rectangle, oval and square punch configurations. Its application effectiveness includes 3000 and 5000 series aluminum, galvanized and stainless steels, pre-painted material, vinyl coated material and fiberglass.
