Ultra® QCT™


Overview

Mate Precision Tooling’s Ultra® QCT™ thick turret tooling takes insert-style punching systems to a whole new level! The tool-less punch retention mechanism makes changing the punch insert a breeze:  flip the durable latch to remove and snap the new insert into place. It’s that easy!  No tools to use, break or lose to change the punch insert.  Ultra QCT’s durable patent-pending design is designed to minimize effort and maximize uptime.

Ultra QCT punch inserts are made from M4PM™ steel, the longest lasting tool steel in the industry. Only one punch driver is required for rounds or shapes. All punch drivers come standard with Mate’s next generation SuperMax™ coating for extended life.

Mate Precision Tooling Ultra QCT is available in both A and B stations and works with all existing UltraTEC, Ultra XT and Ultra Fully Guided guides and standard canisters.

Product Features

Easy Set-Up & Maintenance. No Tools Required!

Ultra® QCT™ is designed to minimize efforts and maximize uptime. There are no tools to use, break or lose to change the punch insert. Simply flip the durable latch to remove and snap the new insert into place. It’s really that easy!

Maintenance is a breeze, too. Use compressed air to clean away any debris without damage.

Longer Lasting, Superior Insert Performance

Ultra® QCT™ punch inserts are made from Mate’s proprietary M4PM™ steel, the longest lasting tool steel in the industry. At .770(19,56), the SBR is longer than our standard length punches, for more grind life. The punch is keyed at the perimeter providing better angularity control. Since the punch insert OD interfaces with the guide ID, punch guiding is superior, too.

Robust Construction

The punch driver is made from high speed steel and comes standard with Mate’s proprietary next generation SuperMax™ coating for extended life. To ensure durability, Ultra® QCT™ has undergone extensive product testing in customer locations.

Simple

With Ultra® QCT™ Mate has simplified your tooling storage needs. Only one punch driver is required for rounds or shapes. Ultra® QCT™ works with all existing UltraTEC®, Ultra XT™ and Ultra® Fully Guided guides and canisters, so there’s no need to purchase a special or captive system. Punch inserts take up less space than standard punches and waste less material.
