As you certainly know from your experience, when you need a tool for that last minute punching job, you find your tool is dull. When there’s no time waiting for a new tool, you will need to sharpen the one you have just to complete your production job. Additionally to our ps:®speed-grinder we now added another grinding machine to our product range, the purchase of which is justified even with a small stock of punching tools: ps:®hand-grinder.
ps:®low-scratch-stripper - for low scratch working
Every day, the operator of a punching machine is faced with the challenge of working scratch-free for his end product - no matter which punching machine he works with.
Some time ago, we integrated PU-coated stripper for tooling system TRUMPF into our portfolio. These strippers have become an important part of daily working life for many of our customers. Due to the high demand for this application, we have also significantly increased our stock of standard stripper with PU-coating so that just-in-time delivery can take place.
The success of this innovation was accompanied by the customer‘s wish to produce such strippers for Multitools as well. Until recently, there was no technical development how the standard stripper of the 5- or 10-station Multitool for tooling system TRUMPF could be manufactured in such a way that low scratch processing of the sheet metal could also be guaranteed. They are now available at PASS!
The topic of „knock-outs direct on bendings“ in order to break out pre-defined knock-outs properly and easily has already been solved with our ps:®knock-out.
However, knock-outs are also required for larger sizes. In this case, it is the best to work with connections which - depending on the application - can be connected more or less firmly to the sheet.
Typically, such work is still carried out on large presses.
PASS offers the possibility to now integrate this external work process into the well-established CNC punching machines with tooling system TRUMPF, THICK TURRET or SALVAGNINI system. NOW these large on-site knock-outs can be produced during the complete punching process.
