Wilson Tool International® Launches EXP(TM) Punch Technology

Press release date: November 14, 2011

EXP punch technology for thick turret presses is more productive, more durable and more affordable than traditional punch press tooling.

WHITE BEAR LAKE, MINN. - Wilson Tool International (www.wilsontool.com) today introduced patent-pending EXP(TM) punch technology, the first tooling in the industry to offer standard holders with truly universal punches. EXP punch technology for thick turret presses increases productivity, reduces manufacturing waste, saves storage space and delivers better performance, grind life and durability than Wilson Tool's ground-breaking HP punch press tooling at a lower cost.

"EXP punch technology is our most innovative punch press tooling yet. We've taken traditional punch press tooling and completely rethought the design," said Brian Robinson, Wilson Tool's chief executive officer. "The resulting tooling is faster, more durable and more affordable than any other thick turret tooling available."

EXP punch holders are designed to fit in all styles of A and B station thick turret assemblies and are available for every major brand of thick turret tooling. This revolutionary design makes it possible to use the same holder with multiple punches. EXP punches are available in rounds or special shapes for virtually any need. For shops that run more than one type of thick turret tooling, EXP punch technology is fully compatible with all current guide assemblies, thus eliminating the need to buy punches from multiple manufacturers.

EXP punch technology offers the fastest setups in the industry. Switching between punches is up to four times faster than changing traditional punch press tooling. And every EXP punch is manufactured with Wilson Tool's exclusive Ultima(TM) premium tool steel to increase wear resistance resulting in up to twice the tool life as most standard punches.

Because EXP punches require significantly less material and produce less waste, manufacturing costs are reduced. The result is much better tooling for less money overall.
