Mate Precision Tooling: One Source Fabricating Solutions
Greatly expanded range at EuroBlech and FabtechJanuary 12, 2017
Mate Precision Tooling will exhibit its greatly expanded fabricating solutions, including the new Ultra® OCT™ quick change tooling, SuperMax™ tool coating and more at EuroBLECH in Hanover, Germany on October 25-29 in hall 12, stand 0158,and at Fabtech in Las Vegas, USA on November 16-18 in booth C36069.
Mate Ultra® QCT™ tooling is simple and intuitive to setup, and fully compatible with Mate’s Ultra® family of guides and standard canisters. To set up,flip the latch to remove and snap the new insert into place. The punch is keyed at the perimeter of the tool – not the centre – providing superior angularity control. The shoulder of the punch remains securely guided by the guide when punching. Another nice feature – only one punch driver is needed for rounds or shapes.
Made from M4PM™ tool steel, Mate Ultra OCT is proven to bethe most durable, longest lasting tool steel in the industry. And it is coated with SuperMax™, Mate’s next generation coating, to minimise wear and preserve fits.
SuperMax™ tool coating
Mate’s new SuperMax™ is a proprietary, next gen eration coating specifical ly formulated for punch press tooling. SuperMax outperforms currently available premium coatings by 2 to 8 times, depending on the application. Applied using the latest nano-layer technology. SuperMax’s harder, denser film greatly increases wear resistence and has a much lower friction coefficient. Lower friction means less heat build-up, less galling and longer tool life. SuperMax works in a wide range of materials including aluminum, cold rolled, galvanized and stainless steels, vinyl coated and fiberglass.
Salvagnini Style “P0” fully guided perforating tool
Designed to accommodate any shape up to 0.492 in (12.50mm) diameter, Mate’s new Salvagnini “P0” fully guided perforating tool has all the quality features expected from Mate. Tight stripper cleaerance prevents lateral punch movement for assured accurate hole punching. Mate’s specially formulated MPM82 powdered tool steel has superiour wear resistance for longest tool life. The fully guided tool is designed for smaller hole sizes in the 7 ton stations of Salvagnini punch presses. With this product, Mate now provides users with the ideal perforating solution for both the low nad high range sizes of the 7 ton station.
CleanBend™ forming technology for press brakes
Mate’s new CleanBend forming technology for press brakes enables high quality sheet metal forming with minimal to no marking of the metal. It is designed for a wide range of applications including bending short flanges; bending a flange to a diagonal sharp or across existing holes; bending delicate or polished materials, including plastic coverings and much more. Using rotating supports, the process mimics a folding operations.
Mate 1 micron optics for fiber lasers
Mate continues to expand its laser optics offerings with the introduction of 1 micron optics for fiber lasers. These fused silica lenses and mirrors are the best forming optics with superior coating and low absorption. They are approved for use in leading brand fiber lasers.
Mate Lensmate makes Amada lens mounting
Mate Lensmate makes lens remounting an easy, in-house task. No springs, screws or iridium wire to deal with. Simply separate the housing by twisting the Lensmate apart, replace the lens and twist back together. For Apelio, Gemini, FONT and Pulsar Amada laser models.
