Thick Turret QCT Quick Change Tooling and Versadie HD

Mate QCT Metric quick change tool less tooling, Versadie HD for slitting thick material and Mate laser accessories.

The latest Mate tooling solutions will be showcased at FABTECH 2018. Mate's expanded QCT product line expansion includes QCT Metric, AMX QCT for Amada air blow systems and MXC QCT for Wilson Series 90 systems.

Expanded QCT Line

Mate has expanded its QCT product line to include QCT Metric, AMX QCT for Amada air blow systems and MXT QCT for Wilson Series 90 systems. The QCT system is simple and intuitive to set up. Simply flip the durable latch to remove and snap the new insert into place.

Mate QCT Metric is fully compatible with Mate's Ultra family of guides and canisters, Mate's Original Style guides, spring packs and Rapidset canisters. These punches are fully interchangeable with Amada NCT, NEX and Z-Tooling systems, as well as Wilson thick turret metric punches. AMX QCT is fully compatible with Mate AMX guides, spring packs and Rapidset canisters, as well as Amada NCT, NEX and Z-Tooling air blow systems. MXC QCT punches are fully interchangeable with Wilson Series 90 systems.

"Mate QCT punch inserts are made from M4PM tool steel, proven to be the most durable, longest lasting tool steel in the industry," said a company spokesperson. Punch drivers are coated with SuperMax, Mate's next generation coating to minimize wear and preserve fits.

Mate patent pending QCT insert style punching system is available in metric (long stem) versions for thick turret A and B stations.

New Mate Versadie HD Improves Slitting Thick Materials

"Mate Versadie HD takes clamp clearing solutions to a new level with several unique design features. First, there is no need to replace the entire die with replaceable die inserts. Versadie inserts are designed to allow for the greatest lengths currently available in the industry, accommodating lengths up to 4.560 inches (115.82 mm) for E Stations and 3.560 inches (90.42 mm) for D Stations," said the spokesperson. With its tighter tolerances of the insert to the holder, Versadie has enhanced overall quality.

With all the benefits of the standard Versadie, the new Versadie HD offers improved slitting in thicker materials that require more than 0.016" (0.406 mm) total die clearance. The base incorporates a hat die feature to better withstand the punching of heavier materials. The die inserts are fully interchangeable with the standard Versadie.

For enhanced performance and longevity, all Versadie slitting die inserts are made from MPM82 tool steel. Designed for use in high performance tooling systems, MPM82 is a high speed, particle metallurgy steel intended to provide high value and versatility making ideal for slitting operations. For maximum longevity, the die body allows shimming after the insert is sharpened during routine maintenance. There is no need for special shims either; simply use standard thick turret die shims.

Press Brake Tooling with Safety System

Mate has expanded its press brake tooling line with a new American Precision Style system that is compatible with press brake laser and optical safety systems. Mate's American Precision Style press brake tooling is a full line of precision ground punches and dies. This system has wide options available for common height punches and dies, along with an industry first option to purchase by the inch - just specify and buy the tooling length required for the design.

All Mate American Precision Style punches come standard with Mate's Maglock magnetic safety system (patent-pending), which is simple, easy, reliable and safe. Maglock uses rare earth magnets to attach and seat the punch to the holder with no separation between the surfaces. With no protrusions, the tang simplicity makes Maglock-equipped punches ideal for front loading of tooling and enables installation of tooling backward or forward.

The Maglock magnetic safety system is compatible with a variety of existing holder systems.

Mate Laser Technologies Expands

Mate has added over 500 new laser accessory products reaffirming its commitment to the rapidly growing fiber and CO2 laser market. Newly included are fiber lenses, fiber windows, nozzles and accessories to ensure all customers get what they want when they need it. All-new, easy-to-use, OEM specific catalogs are also available.

New Customer Cloud-Based Portal

Mate has introduced a comprehensive customer cloud-based portal for tooling library history management. Users can manage their tooling library, special shapes, forming tool drawings, purchase history and service subscriptions all in one mobile-friendly site. This free, value-added resource is available to all Mate customers through a quick and easy online registration form.
