Get Best Results from
Linear Ground 2D Shaped Punches

Non-traditional applications can be hard on tooling. Not just because they often require an outside the box punch shape, but because unusually shaped punches can lead to a number of performance challenges. Uneven tool wear and breakage, material adhesion and more can result from punching with the atypical contours of a unique 2D shape. That’s why Impax employs linear grinding as a standard feature of 2D shapes. Linear grinding creates a grain structure in the punch in the direction of impact. This significantly increases stripping properties while decreasing galling and friction over other manufacturing methods. It also optimizes the life of your springs and die components because force is lessened on all elements of the process.

Tool Steel Options

Choosing the right tool steel for your application can make a measurable impact on your performance

Performance Enhancing Punch Coatings

Punch coatings enhance tool life and performance to levels far beyond that of untreated tool steels


Optima<sup>®</sup> Coating

Our most popular coating for piercing, blanking, and trimming, with a micro hardness of 3500, Optima® far exceeds the hardness levels that can be achieved with conventional steels and will outlast untreated tools up to 5-7 times. 


Optimax<sup>®</sup> Coating

Optimax® is a multi layer coating, with a base of Optima and a second layer of molybdenum disulfide. It works well in materials prone to galling, and in applications where part lubrication has been reduced or eliminated.



This coating excels in piercing and forming of non-ferrous materials, including aluminum, copper and brass. It has a hardness of 3500 HV, a coefficient of friction of 0.55, and equals improved wear resistance and added toughness.



Forte® is a proprietary multi-layer nano coating that is a great alternative to a CVD coating. It's a good choice for high-pressure applications and punching and forming for high and low alloy steel in all thicknesses.
