Ultra® Multi Tools
Multi Tool Systems for High Performance Punch Presses
Mate Ultra® Multi Tool assemblies for thick turret punch presses* make full use of the advantages of Mate UltraTEC® punches, strippers and Slug Free® dies. They provide complete compatibility with existing tooling inventory for added convenience. These assemblies are designed and engineered as an integral part of the high performance machines in which they operate.
Mate Ultra Multi Tools fit into 3-1/2” D-Index stations and are available in two versions for maximum flexibility.
The Mate Ultra Multi Tool 8 station assembly
- Punch Point Range : 0.030(0.80) to 0.500(12.70)
- Ultra TEC ½” A station punches, strippers, and Slug Free dies
The Mate Ultra Multi Tool 3 station assembly
- Punch Point Range : 0.500(12.70) to 1.250(31.70)
- UltraTEC 1-1/4” B station punches, strippers, and Slug Free dies
Standard UltraTEC® Tooling
Mate Ultra Multi Tools accept standard UltraTEC punches for exceptional life between regrinds, strippers with recess for additional 0.118(3.00) punch grind life, and Slug Free® dies to eliminate slug pulling and increase piece part quality.
Quick Tool Change
The twist-lock design of the upper assembly allows tools to be changed in seconds, without the need for additional hand tools, and without the need for disassembly. Faster tool changes optimize machine productivity and efficiency.
Integral Punch Length Adjustment
Each punch length can be independently adjusted to ensure the precise punch-to-stripper lead is maintained for optimum punching performance across a wide range of material thickness from 0.020(0.50) to 0.157(4.00).
Sheet Marking Protection
Each tool within the punch holder is individually actuated by the lobed ram of the machine. The innovative design of the Mate Ultra multi tool holder allows the active tool to punch through the material, while the points of the inactive punches are prevented for moving. This eliminates sheet marking and improved piece part quality.
Replaceable Face Plate
The simple geometry of the face plate allows compatibility with the simple slide-in Ultra TEC strippers. The robust construction provides extended service life, while the simple design allows replacement to reduce ongoing maintenance costs.
Lubrication Delivery Systems
Both versions of the Ultra multi tool assemblies are fully compatible with automatic tool lubrication systems found on many of today’s high performance punch presses. The lubrication is delivered by the machine via the punch ram, and is transported to all moving surfaces within the punch holder assembly. In addition, the external spiral grooves in the outside diameter of the holder, reduce friction between the machine and the holder, especially during high speed nibbling operations.
