The Rolling Offset tool quickly creates offsets in any contour, starting or ending anywhere on the sheet. Straight or curved offsets are seamlessly formed into the sheet metal with dramatically greater speed than any other tool. Because the Rolling Offset moves horizontally along the sheet, rather than punching vertically into the sheet, the offset can be formed virtually without nibble marks or rough edges.
Offsets no longer need to be performed in the press brake, but can instead be formed directly in the punch press alongside other punching operations. Curved contours or straight designs are fast and easy. Due to the smooth rolling action of the tool, secondary operations are rarely necessary to achieve a polished, cosmetic form.
The Wilson Wheel® family of products offers you flexible, high speed production of embosses, slits, ribs and offsets on a wide range of materials with virtually no burrs or nibble marks. Wilson Wheel tools are a revolutionary innovation in the world of punch press tooling. Rather than punching the sheet in a vertical motion, Wilson Wheel tools horizontally roll along the sheet, dramatically speeding production and creating forms never thought possible in the punch press.
Because of the horizontal movement of the tools, nibble marks, burrs and the usual troublesome byproducts of punching sheet metal are virtually eliminated.
