Available through Maxitec , Mate punches and strippers are 100% compatible with Amada ABS assemblies and holders, offering users a replacement tooling alternative. The new AMX ABS tooling Mate has been released with special lubrication features and high speed steel designed to extend tool life while ensuring quality punching.

Features of the Mate punching and stripping tools include:

  • Internal lubrication within the punch guide and external lubrication between the punch guide and the turret bore
  • Internal lubrication of all critical tool components helps prevent galling, slivering and slug pulling
  • Lubrication functions are computer controlled within the turret press and can be programmed and regulated according to punching requirements
Benefits of using Mate punching and stripping tools include:
  • Increases tool performance and flexibility with extended tool life while allowing use with existing systems
  • For customers with special application needs, optional Maxima coatings and Nitride treatments are available
  • Maxima coating acts as a barrier between the punch and sheet metal, greatly improving stripping 
  • Mate’s AMX punches combine with hardened and ground stripper guides to reduce galling, wear and heat, ultimately extending both tool and turret life
  • High tool performance, superior dimensional accuracy and maximum tool life due to the precision machined of premium M2 high speed steel using Mate’s specially developed heat treatment process
The Mate AMX punching and stripping tooling is available in A and B station punches, stripper guides and assemblies as well as C, D and E station punches and strippers designed for use in all Amada machines equipped with ABS capability.
