AMX QCT™ is fully compatible with Mate AMX™ guides, spring packs and Rapidset canisters, as well as Amada NCT, NEX and Z-Tooling air blow systems. MXC QCT punches are fully interchangeable with Wilson Series 90 systems.
Mate QCT punch inserts are made from M4PM™ tool steel, proven to be the most durable, longest lasting tool steel in the industry. Punch drivers are coated with SuperMax™, Mate’s next generation coating to minimize wear and preserve fits.
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. Mate’s American Precision Style press brake tooling is a full line of precision ground punches and dies. This system has the widest options available for common height punches and dies, along with an industry first option to purchase by the inch – just specify and buy the tooling length required for your design.
All Mate American Precision Style punches come standard with Mate’s groundbreaking Maglock® magnetic safety system (patent-pending), which is simple, easy, reliable and safe. Maglock uses rare earth magnets to attach and seat the punch to the holder with no separation between the surfaces. With no protrusions, the tang simplicity makes Maglock-equipped punches ideal for front loading of tooling and enables installation of tooling backward or forward.
With the exclusive Maglock magnetic safety system and compatibility with a wide variety of existing holder systems, Mate anticipates that American Precision Style press brake tooling will become the fabricator’s choice in the future.
New Mate Versadie HD™ Improves Slitting Thick Materials – Has Unique Design Features
Mate Versadie HD™ takes clamp clearing solutions to a new level with several unique design features. First, there is no need to replace the entire die with replaceable die inserts. Versadie inserts are designed to allow for the greatest lengths currently available in the industry, accommodating lengths up to 4.560” (115.82mm) for E Stations and 3.560” (90.42mm) for D Stations. With its tighter tolerances of the insert to the holder, Versadie has superior overall quality.
With all the benefits of the standard Versadie™, the new Versadie HD offers improved slitting in thicker materials that require more than 0.016” (0.406mm) total die clearance. The base incorporates a hat die feature to better withstand the punching of heavier materials. The die inserts are fully interchangeable with the standard Versadie.
For superior performance and longevity, all Versadie slitting die inserts are made from MPM82 tool steel. Designed for use in high performance tooling systems, MPM82 is a high speed, particle metallurgy steel intended to provide high value and exceptional versatility making perfect for slitting operations. For maximum longevity, the die body allows shimming after the insert is sharpened during routine maintenance. There’s no need for special shims either; simply use standard thick turret die shims.
