Standard, modified or custom press brake tools
- June 7, 2020
These popular standard, modified and custom tool styles in North America are available in American Precision Style, European Precision Style and Wila Trumpf Style.
While the standard tools fulfill the needs for most fabricating operations, bending variations may require modifying the angle of a standard punch or die a few degrees. With induction hardening depth at 3mm-4mm (.118 in - .157 in), material can be removed from the tool to modify an angle or change a radius without jeopardizing structural integrity.
Other frequent tool modifications include cutting a window or relief pocket to provide clearance so that a formed part does not collide with the punch during the forming process.
When a standard or modified standard Mate PBT isn’t the best solution, Mate’s application specialists will design a custom tooling solution.
