New Mate American Precision Style Press Brake Tooling Featuring Groundbreaking Maglock™ Magnetic Safety System for Easier, Safer Punch Front Loading

Mate has expanded its press brake tooling line with a new American Precision Style system that is compatible with press brake laser and optical safety systems. This full line of punches and dies is designed for brakes configured with American style holders. Key features of the new product line include Maglock™ punches that enable front loading for easy and safe tool change, common height punches and dies that speed part processing and a standard “buy-by-the-inch” customer friendly ordering system.

Mate American Precision Style press brake tooling is standard with another first from Mate: the patent-pending Maglock™ magnetic safety system. Called brilliant by industry experts, Maglock uses magnets to attach and seat the punch to the holder with no separation between the surfaces. Available only on Mate American Precision Style press brake tooling, Maglock is simple, easy, reliable and safe. The reversible/symmetrical design enables press brake punch installation facing forward or backward with the tool’s magnetic power. The tang simplicity makes Maglock punches ideal for front loading tooling into the press.

Another industry first for Mate’s American Precision Style system is the “buy-by-the-inch” pricing system that lets you buy the length of the tooling that you need. Just specify and buy the tooling length required by the part design.

With the exclusive Maglock magnetic safety system and compatibility with a wide variety of existing holder systems, Mate predicts American Precision Style press brake tooling will become the fabricator’s choice in the future.
