Marathon® Tooling System for
Murata Wiedemann Punch Presses

Mate's Marathon® Tooling System was designed and engineered especially for today's high speed Murata Wiedemann punch presses. Marathon's high speed, high performance design features include hardened and ground spring loaded punch holders; fully guided premium M2 high speed steel punches; hardened steel strippers; and Mate Slug Free® Dies. Additional advantages include built-in multiple angle settings, a built-in fine thread adjustment shim, and a built-in lubrication system. Definitely tooling for the times.

System Concept - Ideal for high volume or high-speed applications. Contained forces to reduced turret wear. Hardened and ground punch holder to reduce friction. Reduced travel + hardened guide = increased turret bore life. 3-point guiding to improve piece part quality. Built-in adjustable shim for optimum length setting without shims. Spring loaded stripper holds the sheet flatter. Include 8 angle settings for maximum flexibility.

Marathon Punch Holders – Fully hardened and ground for maximum precision and long life. Full length guiding in three positions (top middle and punch tip) for perfect alignment and stability. Spring loaded stripping for flatter sheets and improved hole accuracy. Single draw bolt lock for positive punch retention. Self-locking stripper plate retention (no wrenches required). Self-releasing “pop-up” stripper for fast, easy tool change. Built-in lubrication vents for smooth long life operation. Full station capacity.

Marathon® Punches - high speed tool steel for exceptional tool life. 1/4 degree back taper and near polished flanks to reduce friction and eliminate galling. 3-point guided action eliminates lateral deflection and improves piece part quality. Minute corner radii to reduce chipping and extend tool life.

Marathon® Stripper - Fully guided stripper provides lateral punch support to improve piece part quality and extend tool life. Domed face to concentrate stripping force at punch tip. Quick tool change: Installation - press-click, Removal - twist-click. Superior angularity and concentricity for better piece part quality. Built-in angle settings every 45 degrees for maximum flexibility.

SLUG FREE® Dies: High wear strength, chrome air hardened tool steel to balance hardness and toughness. SLUG FREE® die geometry eliminates slug pulling. Uniform clearance radii in die corners to eliminate pip marks. Precision orientation with external pin. Up to 0.118(3.00) grind life. Superior roundness and flatness with exceptional die strength.
