Mate Precision Tooling announces expansion of its XMT™ tooling system with the addition of the XMT 12.7 mm punch, stripper and Slug Free® die to suit the new XMTE10 multi tool. Designed for use in the new 10-station Euromac XMTE10 Multi Tool, this XMT 12.7 mm tooling will accommodate round and shaped tools with a diagonal dimension up to 0.500 in (12.70 mm). These new XMTE10 Multi Tool assemblies are configured to accept the following:
- 2x XMT 24 mm punches, strippers and dies (rounds or shapes).
- 4x XMT 12.7 mm punches, strippers and dies (rounds or shapes).
- 4x XMT 12.7 mm punches, strippers and dies (rounds only).
The XMTE10 is an expansion of the exclusive range of Euromac multi tools that already includes the 6-station XMTE6 multi tool system. The new XMT 12.7 mm multi tool tooling and existing line of XMT 24 mm tooling is designed with numerous features for superior punching performance including high speed steel (HSS) punches for exceptional interval between regrinds. Punches have a ¼ deg back taper and near polished flanks to reduce friction and eliminate galling. Hardened strippers feature a tight clearance of 0.0017 in (0.04 mm) for best punch guiding. Dies include Slug Free® geometry to eliminate slug pulling and also feature uniform clearance radii in die corners to improve piece part quality. www.mate.com/XMT
