Ultraform FX™ is perfect for machines with precision stroke control. A fixed length forming tool, Ultraform FX™ lets you take advantage of machine programming. As with all Ultraform products, it features grooved lubrication grooves and multiple angle settings. Ultraform FX™ uses Mate’s Ultraform insert system allowing you to have an unlimited number of forming tools with one holder to help you reduce your tooling spend. If you already have Ultraform or Ultraform XT™ holders, the inserts are fully interchangeable.
NOTE: Mate introduced an easier-to-use, more robust upper insert design for ULTRAFORM®, ULTRAFORM FX™ and ULTRAFORM XT™ holders for simple form types that do not need tight angularity control. This new design requires the upper insert to be retained with a draw-bolt from the top of the holder. The new design is compatible with all ULTRAFORM holders, and all ULTRAFORM FX and ULTRAFORM XT holders manufactured after December 1, 2014. Please refer to the chart below to ensure your existing holders are compatible with the new design inserts.
