The core piece of fineblanking is to find in the tooling technology. It defines the quality of the component and its costs. The conception of the tool is decisive for the performance per hour, the useful production time (amount of parts produced in between tool maintenance) as well as the maintenance effort. For this very reason Hydrel is engaging in manufacturing its own tool sets.
On the blanking grid of this progressive tool are the steps of the blanking and cold-forming operations (5 stations) plainly visible.
To offer adequate solutions for the clients needs, Hydrel has developed its very own system of tooling.
The quick-tool-change-over system brings two main advantages to the fore: short re-set times and low tool costs, as the client will be asked to buy the cutting elements only.
