Rotary Dies

Rotary dies are a great special tooling solution with numerous bending operation benefits. Because tonnage disperses with the movement of the rotating cam, the application requires less tonnage and makes bending sheet significantly easier for operators to handle. In some cases, using a rotary tool can cut labor costs in half, when more than one operator has traditionally been required, and improves safety. For cosmetic applications, rotary bending greatly decreases tonnage and part marking so sheets may require less protection and have improved finished appearance.

Rotary die features:

  • Improved safety for larger parts due to controlled material whip
  • Material marking is reduced since tonnage is reduced on the shoulder of the die and  abrasion is lessened
  • Reduced tonnage on an application by 50% or more
  • Potential reduction in labor needs
  • Wilson Tool’s press brake specialty team, with 35 years experience, ensures the tooling works upon receipt
  • Creative and imaginative designs encourage greatest process efficiency 
  • Tooling Technicians will gather all needed information up front to make an educated decision regarding the application 
  • Available in every tool style

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 conventional tooling in any of the common styles of tooling, such as European, WT, LVD 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.
