Hard Tooling – Special Machined Shapes

AmeriKen reinvents the punch – We do it everyday

Custom punches can achieve tight corners and intricate angles that far surpass capabilities of steel rule dies. We can produce shapes with cut edge as small as .020″ wide.

AmeriKen’s ultra sharp cutting edges prevent angel hair and excessive diecutting dust. Precision heights do away with the hassle of press adjustment. Folding and scoring are easier. To eliminate hand stripping specially designed punches utilize side outlet inserts for slug removal in the cramped places.

Specialty punches can be engineered so they support the steel rule while cut edges are machined onto the block tool steel, thus eliminating tight spots and the need for costly special bases.
