Mate Precision Tooling has introduced RAPIDSET™ adjustable, thick-turret canisters for use with its original-style and AMX™ punch press tooling. The canisters also are compatible with Amada standard, Amada ABS, and Wilson standard tooling styles. They are designed to provide quick tool changes and to hasten punch-length adjustment with existing tooling inventories.
The A and B station canisters work with keyed or nonkeyed punches. They feature a nonrotating clamping head with adjustable clamping screw for setting punch length. The preloaded, self-contained spring pack provides consistent stripping pressure, consistent die penetration, and reduced slug pulling. Punch length is adjusted without removal from the guide. The canisters can be used to punch material thicknesses up to 0.250 in.
