Tooling Solutions for Increasing Productivity

Mate will showcase the One-Hit-Hinge tool that forms two sections of a curl on two separate knuckles, creating a closed circle. When assembled with mating forms, the pin is held securely in place by 360° contact. Since One-Hit-Hinge does not have to be formed straight up and curled down (3-hi style), the hinge diameter can be larger and will not interfere with the machine gap. Mate One-Hit-Hinge is engineered to reduce the number of tool hits, increase form size and reduce part cost.

Operators can expand press brake capabilities by forming sheet metal on a press brake with Ultraform PBT. Ultraform PBT combines Mate's Ultraform thick turret forming system with a newly improved universal press brake forming holder. Electrical knockouts, louvers, lance and forms, embosses and stencils can be formed on a press brake.

The new Screw Pocket Lance & Form tool eliminates the need for a formed flange and the hardware. It creates a form in the edge of the sheet that is designed to receive the screw-thread directly. The hardware and secondary operation are eliminated and both components are fastened together securely.

Visitors can see Mate's comprehensive range of punch press tooling for every major CNC punch press: Thick Turret, Trumpf Style, Murata Wiedemann, Thin Turret and Salvagnini. The extensive product line of press brake tooling includes American Precision Style with Maglock magnetic safety system, European Precision Style and Wila Trumpf Style.
