Special Ordering Considerations

Unless otherwise indicated, all Kazmier Press Brake Tooling is made from high quality alloy steel specially engineered for press break tooling applications.  This medium carbon alloy offers excellent strength and durability.  It is easily machined and can be flame hardened to increase durability

  • Safety Tang/Hook Tongues:  We recommend safety tongues on all punches with 5-3/4" Net Height or greater, in cases where stripping pressure is applied, and for segmented punches shorter than 6" in length.  When ordering a safety tongue on asymmetrical punches, such as gooseneck punches, please specify the direction of the tongue.  Typical dimensioning of safety tongues and standard tongues are on page 6.  Note that ordering a safety tang on a standard punch will reduce the net height of the tool by .125" (3.1mm).

  • Flame Hardening:  Flame hardening is available as an option on most standard and special punches and dies.  We recommned flame hardening for wire and stainless steel applications.  This process increases hardness to a depth of approximately .125" (3.18mm) on work surfaces.  We do not recommned the flame hardening of narrow surfaces such as acute punches.

  • European Style Holders:  All tooling is quoted and shown with standard tongues or safety tongues.  For an additional charge, we can design and manufacture tooling with European Style Holders.

  • Unit of Measure:  All dimensions are given in inch/fractional notation.  Metric/decimal dimensions are not a problem.  We will be happy to quote your metric tooling requirements.

  • Try-out Material:  When designing specialized tooling for your applications, we may ask for try-out material.  Providing try-out material is an important part of ensuring that you are satisfied with the performance of the tooling.. Because of wide variations in materials from supplier to supplier and the effect these variations have on the performance of your tooling, it is critical that we have your material as part of our quality control process.  All that is required is ten to twelve pieces of material of sufficient size to show the profile of your part.  Not sending try-out material may delay your order and effect the performance of your tooling.

  • Reconditioning of Existing Tooling:  Often we are able to rework existing tooling at a fraction of the cost of new tooling.  We pride ourselves on quick turn-around for reconditioning your tooling.  Please note that prices quoted are estimated and actual prices will be quoted after inspection of your tooling.

  • Approval Drawings:  It is our policy to provide drawings for your review and approval concerning all special die sets.  We will on request, forward drawings for standard tooling ordered.  When quoting specialized tooling, a drawing may be provided to clarify what we quoted to you.
