The tool system with specialized die guidance from EHRT
The new RS tool is the successor of the EHRT tools for contour shapes, open shapes and tools that are used especially for nibbling.
The tried-and-tested EHRT technology was applied to the spring assemblies, so that the RS tool looks very similar to the Quick Change or Quick Lock tools that you are familiar with.
The special features are in the tool itself. Here, the many years of experience in tool construction were brought in to develop a particularly robust guided tool unit.
A rectangular contour was chosen for the ram area. On the one hand, this contour makes it possible to implement the anti-rotation device directly on the ram, so that no further guidance is required in the scraper area. On the other hand, this robust guide can absorb high bending and torsion forces caused by the punching process, which leads to a significantly improved service life and increases the accuracy of the workpiece, especially with open shapes or nibbling. Almost any contour shape or even multiple punchings can be produced with one tool from any desired punch material.
One specific RS tool design is the cutting tool for the FlexPunch series. Its sturdy construction and the punch geometry make it possible to achieve a cutting width that was not possible previously. Material up to 60 mm can be cut in one stroke.
