Mate Precision Tooling has expanded its press brake tooling product line with the addition of CleanBend forming technology.
The CleanBend tool is available in both European Precision Style and Wila Trumpf Style tooling and can be adapted to American Precision Style tooling.
The Mate CleanBend tool is designed with two opposing spring-loaded half-moon rollers that rotate as force is applied in the middle of the die, resulting in a clean bend with minimal to no marking of the sheet metal. Primary applications include bending:
• Short flange
• Flange to a diagonal sharp
• Across preexisting holes
• Across a notch or gap
• Sensitive or delicate materials
• Highly polished materials
• Painted or coated surfaces
• Materials with foil or plastic coverings
• Tread plate
“CleanBend is an important extension of our press brake tooling line,” sys VP of Business Development, Frank Baeumler. “We can now offer customers added capabilities and functionality to produce more with their press brakes.”
Mate launched its line of press brake tooling last summer. The tooling is precision ground and induction hardened for extra durability. It includes an expansive array of punches, dies, modified standards, specials and accessories. They are available in segmented, full-length and half-length sizes to suit nearly any metal bending application.
