FABRICATORS in need of special assembly tools such as louvers, shearbuttons, tapping extrusions and many others will find Mate Precision Tooling’s new immediate delivery stock service helpful in planning part projects.
Forty of Mate's most popular Ultraform special assembly forming tools are now available through this service. Mate is represented in Australia by Advanced Sheetmetal Technologies Pty Ltd.
Included are Mate's Rollerball tooling for forming ribs, flanges and raised areas and Sheetmarker tooling for inscribing and marking components for traceability.
All tooling is conveniently indexed online for fast referencing at www.mate.com/stockspecials.
A fabricator in need can take just 24 hours delivery in any time zone throughout the world.
This availability is especially helpful to fabricators planning and/or starting up new part projects at nights and weekends when operating in a just-in-time fabricating environment.
Ultraform tools are the tooling of choice for many leading fabricators because it reduces overall cost. Fewer tool components are needed to do the job plus more tooling flexibility is achieved because the forming inserts are interchangeable and the tools do more.
Most importantly, Ultraform tooling has a length adjustment feature that can be preset for savings in tool setup time.
Once installed in the machine, the tool can be reset without removing the tool from the machine. Adjustments of 0.002 inch (0.05mm) per ‘click’ of the punch head can be made quickly and easily, while standard angle setting possibilities are 0°, 90°, 180°, and 270°.
Ultraform tooling is available for Amada, Finn Power, Euromac, Danobat, Strippit, Pivatic and all punch presses using thick turret tooling.
