rotating headWhat if you could drastically extend your punch life?

Natoli’s punch keys will have you wondering how you ever did without them! Get a punch key quote today.

Punch rotation can damage both the tooling and tablet press and shorten the life of your punches.

Fitting keys to punches prevents this rotation and extends punch life. This allows your punches to be used exclusively for tableting and not for setting and resetting dies.

This also makes setup and tooling changeover fast, easy, and virtually error-free. Natoli’s key optional Align-pro tooling is also designed for complete interchangeability.

How is this possible? During press setup, a die alignment tool is used to set all of the dies in the die table quickly and squarely, ensuring proper angular alignment to the upper punch key. This procedure results in a precise fit between the upper punch and the die so that all upper punches can be randomly installed without any trouble. We know your industry and can make punch keys to fit your current tooling needs. Let us help you – fill out a punch key quote today.

Thank you so much for getting the tooling done so quickly.  As I was telling my client, I had a great relationship with Natoli in the past at my previous employer and Natoli will always go above and beyond to try to help the client out but even I was surprised that you could turn around this order so quickly.  From our management, we really appreciated Natoli being able to process the tooling in an expedited manner!!!!
