Welcome to the New Era of Workholding

Precision Workholding Technology from Mate


Mate Precision Technologies has had many #1 hits over the past 60 years. As one of the world’s largest and best manufacturers of punch press tooling, press brake tooling, and providers of consumable laser products, we’re excited to announce our entry into a brand new genre with the launch of our workholding solutions in 2021.

Innovation Just Took a Step Up

As a machine shop ourselves, we have used numerous brands of workholding since the 1960s. When our needs changed, our machinists weren’t satisfied with what was available on the market. They knew they could build something better, stronger, bolder. So, they collaborated to engineer our own line of workholding that:

  • Maximizes holding power in a compact, modular design
  • Reduces setup time and process variability
  • Offers best-in-class accuracy and repeatability

This line of vises, bases and mounting systems is designed for quick change machining setups, and multi-station or machine tool setups.
