V-Series Black Dies

Decrease friction and improve performance on tough-to-bend applications

Simplify Bending

V-Series Black dies make it easier to produce small flanges, control the inside radius with the punch tip, and bends closer to holes. They also enable you to bend a wide range of materials using the same die, which reduces setup time and limits the amount of tooling required.

Reduce Friction

V-Series Black dies include built-in inserts that rotate so sheet material glides across the die surface rather than scraping against the shoulder radius. This greatly reduces friction and concentrated load, which drastically diminishes material marking.

Staged Bending for European Style Tooling

Bend more and set up less

With staged bending, fabricators save valuable time by performing multiple bends with a single setup. Staged bending simplifies complex shortrun jobs by eliminating unproductive repetitive tasks – significantly reducing setup time, part handling and work-in-progress.

Maximize your press brake productivity

Typically, completing multiple bends in a single press brake setup would require a skilled press brake operator to use special risers and shims to achieve a common shut height across all punches and dies. With the new staged bending tools for European Style press brakes, Wilson Tool provides an easier way to achieve common shut heights.

Our staged bending tools have common shut heights built in, allowing machine operators to carry out a series of bends in one setup without the complicated preparation process.
