Ultraform® Holder System

Ultraform®, Mate’s top-of-the-line forming tool system, is packed with features that make your job easier and help reduce your tooling costs, too! Features such as tool-less length adjustment that let you set the length in the turret. Hardened guides with multiple angle settings for flexibility and lubrication grooves that help extend turret bore life. Since length adjustment takes place below the lifter flange of the tool, this eliminates the risk of overpenetration that may damage the turret. Best of all, Ultraform, allows you unparalleled forming efficiency with its Ultraform® unique insert system.

With Ultraform®, you can have an unlimited number of forming tools and use the same holder, reducing your overall tooling spend. Want to use a different form? Simply swap out the forming insert. It’s not only efficient; it’s cost-effective. If you already have Ultraform XT or Ultraform FX holders, the inserts are completely interchangeable, further enhancing cost effectiveness. Ultraform can also take advantage of machine lubrication systems.

1 1/4" (B) Station

Concept:

One adjustable length holder can be used with a variety of special forming inserts. The benefits include reduced tooling cost, increased flexibility and the length of the assembly can be accurately pre-set.

Length Adjustment:

The push-button length adjustment mechanism allows the overall length of the assembly to be set in 0.002(0.05) increments, without disassembly, or removal from the machine. The length adjustment is made below the collar of the assembly, thus maintaining the gap between the ram and the tool at top of stroke.

Angle Setting:

All Ultraform inserts can be set at 0, 90, 180 and 270 degrees for maximum flexibility.

Extended Life:

Ultraform holders provide internal channels and external grease grooves to allow lubrication of forming tools. The hardened guides, combined with the lubrication grooves, reduce friction and extended turret bore life.
