Our punches and dies are constructed from M2 and D2 tool steel, and are produced to exacting tolerances. We have individual die sets that have been in production for over 20 years.
The key to long die set life is to maintain zero-deflection control of the punch and die alignment. The CAP5 base lining machine is built from the ground up to prevent the punch from contacting the die. Another factor contributing greatly to die set longevity is our unique in-machine punch / die alignment system, which is very simple and quick.
