Urethane Tooling & Eng. Corp. has launched a new line of modular Tool-A-Thane urethane press brake die retainers used for most metal forming applications up to 0.125-in. material or larger.
The press brake die retainers permit accurate bending without marring or scratching ferrous or nonferrous, polished, prefinished, or other materials, the company reports. They are available in five sizes, from 1 in. wide by 0.5 in. thick to 12 in. wide by 2 in. thick. Because they are modular, additional pieces can be added to an original retainer to add length as needed.
