PASS punches with reinforced shoulder
All PASS punches are produced with a 4 mm reinforced shoulder as soon as the cutting section is required smaller than 4 mm.
This guarantees that you will get a tool with highest stability in order to punch also thicker and high-strength sheets.
However, the correct stripper size has to be selected in subject to machine type, tool design, sheet thickness (2), immersion depth (4), stripper thickness (1) and stripper overlap (3).
It might be possible that it gets necessary to use a stripper with an appropriate big shape (width min. 4,5 mm) in order to get sure that the reinforced punch shoulder can immerse into the stripper.
