Fully Guided Tooling for Strippit-Style Presses

Thursday, November 1, 2007

Mate Precision Tooling, Anoka, MN, has expanded its Xcel tooling system to include two new 3.5-in.-station fully guided punch assemblies, featuring fully guided strippers and high-speed-steel slitting punch inserts. These new high-performance tooling systems are designed for all Strippit punch presses.

The tooling guides the tip of the punch relative to the stripper and guides the stripper relative to the punch-guide assembly. The guide holds the stripper rigidly while the stripper guides the tip of the punch, for precise fully guided punching.

Ensuring the fully guided performance are the precise clearances between punch and stripper—0.0017 in.—and stripper and guide—0.0006 in.

Mate’s Xcel tooling comes with two options, one that accepts Mate M4PM high-speed-steel inserts for optimum performance when slitting around components; and one that accepts conventional inch-shank Durasteel punches.
