Mate Press Brake Z Offset Tool Inserts Make Sense

Posted December 14, 2016 by Larry Boden

Mate’s Z offset tool system delivers unsurpassed versatility that withstands the test of high tonnage offset forming without breaking the bank.

Our Z offset tool insert system gives you more cost effective choices with replaceable inserts that are securely held with holders that fit virtually any style of brake including Trumpf-Wila (TWS), European precision (EPS), and bevel tang (BTS) styles.

All of our offset inserts are interchangeable with all of the various styles of offset insert holders we offer. The same offset inserts purchased for a Trumpf-Wila style brake will also work with your European style brake or Amada one touch style brake.

Changing to a different size offset is simple and quick. No alignment is required.

Expanding your offset tool collection is easy, just buy the insert and use your existing holders.

Forming an offset on a press brake requires more than twice the tonnage needed to form a single bend. It makes sense that all of Mate’s offset tools are induction hardened to HRC 58, to a depth of .157”, assuring that your offset tools will hold their precision ground dimensions for a very long time.

The wide contact surfaces of the holder and inserts minimize the risk of damaging the inserts, holder, or worst yet your press brake in the event of an accidental over tonnage situation.

Mate offers a wide selection of 26 standard offset sizes in four standard angles of 90, 140, 150, and 160 degrees, as well as flattening inserts. We also offer modified standards and specials if desired.

Our Sales Engineers are hands on fabrication experts that are happy to discuss your application, recommend solutions, and answer any questions you may have.

Mate’s press brake tools are backed by our legendary 100% satisfaction guarantee.
