Diecutting Punches – Vacuum Carbonitriding

Vacuum Carbonitriding

All AmeriKen Tube and Feed-Thru punches are case hardened by vacuum carbonitriding, an exclusive heat treating process performed in a scientifically controlled vacuum environment, preventing the formation of thin, weak spots which shorten the cutting life of ordinary punches. Punch quality never deviates, uniformity is absolute!

The maginification to the right shows the hardened case uniformity of an AmeriKen punch.

AmeriKen punches mean faster setup and less downtime because you get consistent quality, consistent sharpness, consistent long-life performance.
