Design, fabrication and development
The design of punches and dies refers to the creation of specialized parts used in punching and die operations. Punches are tools that create holes or shapes in a workpiece, while dies are tools that provide support for the material and define the final shape of the part.
Our president, René Von Arx, plays an active role in the design, manufacturing, and development of dies, providing essential support to the regular production of products for our clients. We ensure that each die, designed and manufactured by our highly skilled team, leaves our factory fully functional, ensuring peace of mind for the client regarding the smooth operation and quality of their production.
Punches and dies are used in the manufacturing of various parts across a variety of different sectors. Here are some examples:
Our punches and dies are made from high-quality materials. Generally, with proper maintenance, punches and dies can last from several thousand to several hundred thousand hits.
Commonly used materials for punches and dies include tool steel, tungsten carbide, and other special alloys. The choice of material depends on the nature of the application, wear resistance requirements, and desired durability.
To extend the lifespan of punches and dies, it is important to use them in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations. This includes maintaining proper lubrication, avoiding overloads, regular cleaning, sharpening or replacing worn parts, and proper storage to prevent corrosion.
It depends on the material characteristics. Some punches and dies can be used for a range of similar materials in terms of properties, while others may require specific adaptations or designs to accommodate different materials. It is recommended to consult the manufacturer’s specifications or seek expert advice to determine the compatibility of punches and dies with different materials.
