Wilson Tool launched an innovative, yet simple approach to punch holding at the recent FABECH 2011 show in Chicago, IL.

EXP is the first tooling in the industry to offer standard holders with universal punches, says Brian Robinson, Wilson Tool's CEO.

"EXP punch technology is our most innovative punch press tooling yet. We've taken traditional punch press tooling and completely rethought the design. The resulting tooling is faster, more durable and more affordable than any other thick turret tooling available."

Designed for thick turret presses, Wilson says the new technology increases productivity, reduces manufacturing waste, saves storage space and delivers better performance, grind life and durability over the company's HP punch press tooling, and does it at a lower cost.

EXP punch holders are designed to fit in all styles of A and B station thick turret assemblies and are available for every major brand of thick turret tooling. This design makes it possible to use the same holder with multiple punches. EXP punches are available in rounds or special shapes for virtually any need. For shops that run more than one type of thick turret tooling, the punch technology is compatible with all current guide assemblies, eliminating the need to buy punches from multiple manufacturers.

It offers the fastest setups in the industry. Switching between punches is up to four times faster than changing traditional punch press tooling. And every EXP punch is manufactured with Wilson Tool's exclusive Ultima premium tool steel to increase wear resistance resulting in up to twice the tool life as most standard punches.
