Striker Systems Advances Support for Mate EasySnap

July 1, 2017

Striker Systems, White House, TN, announces advanced support for the Mate EasySnap tool in its latest Striker CAD/CAM software. EasySnap is a unique technology for part retention and separation in CNC punching operations. It differs from conventional microjoint tools in that it does not leave a connecting tab. Instead, the tool creates a line of weakness (snap line) in both surfaces of the sheetmetal. This allows parts to be snapped free simply by bending along the snap line.

During programming, the part-retention technology requires tool placement that differs from conventional microjoint tools. Rather than placing two tool hits with the desired tab width between, as is typical with a microjoint tool, a single EasySnap tool hit can be used. Striker CAD/CAM software places the EasySnap automatically on a per-part basis or across an entire nested sheet, or interactively allows the programmer to pick the desired locations.
