Tool Up to Create Rib, Shear, Offset and Pincher Features in SheetmetalMay 19, 2015
Mate Precision Tooling, Anoka, MN, introduces Roller Solutions tooling, a family of tools that allows fabricators to quickly and cost-effectively create rib, shear, offset and pincher features in sheetmetal. Compared to traditional methods utilizing progressive forming tools, Mate Roller Solutions promises to dramatically increase productivity when creating detailed forms.
Tooling configurations include:
• Rolling rib--creates stiffening ribs in any contour, starting and ending anywhere on the sheet.
• Rolling shear--for slitting and nibbling operations, this tool virtually eliminates burrs and will minimize scrap. Use it to perform high-speed straight-line and contour cutting.
