Punch press tooling that outperforms

The Wilson Tool punching division drives the industry with new levels of tool quality, service, delivery and innovation for the punch press.

Whether you need standard or special shapes; thick or thin turret tooling; Wiedemann®, Salvagnini® or Trumpf® style, we’ve got a solution to improve your performance.

Go Lean and Mean



Trim unnecessary steps with a countersinking tool for the punch press. Cut processing time 50% or more and eliminate secondary drill or debur operations. Countersink tools are a simple solution that will satisfy your need for a leaner operation.

A Whole Lot of Holes Requires a Custom Solution

When your goal is to perforate a pattern with extremely close center-to-center tolerances, a custom cluster tool will get you there faster while minimizing sheet distortion. Custom cluster tools can be designed with as few as 2 holes or as many as 120+ holes, depending on your needs.

Turbocharge your punch press.

Adding a multi-tool adds exponential functionality, efficiency and capacity… so fast it’s like adding another machine.

Load 3, 8 or even 30 smaller tools into a single station, reducing set-up time and costs associated with extra tool changes in low-capacity machines.

Some multi-tool assemblies allow for quick tool-free or drop-in punch changes, making the fewer tool changes you need to do even speedier.



Punch Coatings & Treatments

Increase performance to levels far beyond untreated tool steels



Optima® coating outlasts untreated tools by as much as seven times. It yields more hits between sharpenings, reduces galling in stainless and galvanized steels, and is unaffected by sharpening. With a surface hardness of 95 Rockwell C, it exceeds the hardness levels achieved with untreated steels.



Wilson Tool's Wearbeater is a titanium nitride (TiN) coating that helps reduce galling and extends punch life in certain applications.


Slip-Max<sup>®</sup> Coating

Available only from Wilson Tool, Slip-Max® greatly increases punch life and reduces galling when piercing aluminum. Slip-Max is also very effective in resolving challenging stripping problems when punching or forming stainless steel and aluminum.


Nitrex<sup>®</sup> Surface Treatment

Nitrex® high endurance surface enhancement increases punch press tooling life by several times that of ordinary tooling. Our patented process provides a surface hardness of HRC-70, increasing long-term durability. Nitrex® is also reduces punch wear and galling when piercing galvanized materials.
