Replaceable Radius Tip Punch

Available in both dovetail and “T” attachment styles, planer machined replaceable radius tip punches for the press brake allow customers to save money by buying one punch body with numerous replaceable radius tips.
Once the punch body is installed in the machine, the radius tip simply slides into place from the side. When a different radius is needed, simply slide out the first tip and replace with the desired size.
Radius tips are much lighter and easier to handle than a traditional planer machined punch, which reduces the likelihood of operator injury, and also potentially reduces the number of operators needed to perform changeovers. Radius tips are adjustment-free, so your setup time is also lessened.
Replaceable radius tip punches are custom made to suit customer needs. They are designed to tackle light or heavy-duty bending as needed. Punches are ground and induction hardened for optimal life and performance.
All “conventional” planer machined tooling is manufactured at Wilson Tool International’s Brampton, Ontario, Canada location.
For replaceable radius tip punches that are precision ground, see our European, American and WT-Style options.

The Wilson Tool International brand of American Planed (or “conventional”) tooling is a lower cost option for customers whose applications do not require the tolerance and finish found in precision tooling. Planed tooling is commonly sold in longer, solid lengths of 10–14 ft. and built to a tolerance of +/– .002” verses precision ground, which is built to +– .0004”. However,  specified lengths are available by request.
American Planed tooling is made of a 28–32 HRC steel and optionally can be hardened by induction hardening or Wilson Tool’s patented Nitrex® surface treatment process. Both Nitrex® treatment and the  induction hardened option will provide longer tool life and induction hardening is specifically recommended when bending thicker materials.
As needed, planed tooling can be surface ground to improve the punch tip or the v-opening of a die. Planer ground tooling will save you time in setups due to consistent centerlines. The improved surface finishes will reduce sheet marking.
American Planed style press brake tooling is available in a variety of styles for the vast majority of press brakes on the market today. If we do not offer a solution that works for you in our standard tooling line, our design team will work with you to engineer a solution to meet your needs. We also make planer machined tooling in any of the common styles of tooling, such as European, WT-style, LVD-style and Bystronic.
Our American Planed tooling is manufactured out of our Ontario, Canada plant. Learn more about our Wilson Tool International Canada locations. To order American Planed tooling, feel free to contact either our USA or Canadian sales offices.
