Nova® Tooling System for Finn-Power Punch Presses

Mate's Nova® Tooling System is the world's first and only tooling designed specifically for the high speed hydraulic Finn-Power press. Mate's status as Original Equipment Manufacturer for Finn-Power makes Nova® tooling the only way to take full advantage of the capabilities of the Finn-Power press. Why use substitute tooling when Nova® tooling is made to match?

Mate Slug Free® Dies and uniform clearance corners are standard features.  Why settle for the ordinary when you have Mate?

Following the success of the Nova® tooling, Finn-Power asked Mate to design and build their Multi-Tool Assemblies. Mate now manufacturers all of the Finn-Power Multi-Tool Assemblies and the complete range of Multi-Tool punches, dies and strippers.

Features and Benefits:

  • Premium high speed steel - superb performance at a thousand hits-per-minute and lasts for millions more.
  • Quick and easy to change, minimize maintenance costs and maximize punch press productivity.
  • Long guide length, fully guided heavy-duty strippers, and Slug Free® dies - reliability and durability.
  • Nova’s low maintenance design - ease of use and long life results in drastic cost savings for Finn-Power users. It guarantees clean, flat and accurate piece parts for only pennies per hit.
Punch Guides:
  • Each guide assembly accepts a wide range of punch sizes for its designated Finn-Power tool holder -- no need to dedicate an assembly to each punch.
  • Punches are removed or replaced in seconds
    • Drop-in style is held in place by a lock ring on the punch
    • Quick-set style by a single bolt and lock ring.
  • The Quick-set style guide assembly is designed for larger punch shanks and hole sizes found in stations D, E, F and G.
  • Sturdy strippers provide excellent load bearing capacity, clamp material securely and guide punches at the cutting edge for clean-cut holes and flatter piece parts.
  • Strippers and punches are locked and keyed together for precise angular and concentric alignment.
  • Compact tool size minimizes leverage created by lateral forces which extends punch life and produces clean-cut holes.
Punches:
  • Premium high speed tool steel - specially formulated high speed steel and heat treatment processes result in high tool performance, superior dimensional accuracy and maximum tool life.
  • Back taper - standards and special shapes prevents galling, reduces stripping pressure and heat build up, increasing tool life.
  • Over 0.250(6.40) grind life - Up to 50 regrinds at 0.005(0.13) per regrind for optimum hole quality and long tool life (Note: grind life is a function of material thickness, die penetration and tool length adjustment. Actual grind life may vary.)
Strippers
  • Precision hardened and ground material - resists abrasive action of punching, extends tool life, prevents pickup of slivers that may cause sheet marking.
  • Punch point guiding - allowing no lateral movement of the punch point assures the most accurate and best quality piece parts, prevents scrap from rising into the assembly.
  • Radiused face - reduces sheet marking, improves piece part quality.

Nova® Style and Finn Style Dies

  • Highly wear resistant, 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 for superior piece part quality.
  • Up to 0.118(3.00) grind life. Superior roundness and flatness with exceptional die strength.
