Custom Dies (American Planed)

Wilson Tool can create any size V opening you require that is not already offered as a stock item. Call out the angle, V, height, width and style and the possibilities are endless.


Wilson Tool International American Planer Machined (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”. Specified lengths and other tooling styles (European, WT-style, LVD-style, Bystronic, etc.) are available by request.

American Planed tooling is made of a 28–32 HRC steel with optional induction hardening or Wilson Tool’s patented Nitrex® surface treatment process to provide longer tool life. 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.

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.
