Diecutting Punches - Special Shapes

Perfect Cut Hangers

Traditional hanger punches are known to deform, have inconsistency in both the height and the body, and break easily, resulting in on-press downtime and re-knifing issues.

AmeriKen's exclusive process on the Perfect Cut line delivers a punch whish is twice as strong as the traditional punch and eliminates deformation, inconsistencies and breakage issues. After manufacturing we requalify the cut edge to ensure perfect quality on every Perfect Cut Punch.

The results of this process are:

Highest Tolerance in the industry
Consistent height on cut edges
Bevel angle stays consistent, no rollover
Documented base for consisent fit
50% stronger than standard punches
Perfect for kiss cutting

Common Knife Connectors

Knife connectors allow common line knifing when several parts are to be cut with one die.
Positive rule joints are easily made without troublesome brazing or welding through the machined V slot.
Shoulders on all standard connectors conform with 5/8" dieboard to simulat steel rule and facilitate rubbering of die. Knife connectors will accept any center bevel rule. Material savings are easily computed to justify their cost.
