WHITE BEAR LAKE, MINN. October 2, 2018 — Wilson Tool International, the largest independent manufacturer of tooling systems for punch presses, press brakes, and punch and die components for the stamping and tableting industries, today announced the addition of a new division: Wilson Tool Additive®.
Additive manufacturing is the process of building a 3-dimensional part from a raw material, utilizing a computer-generated file. This new division will give Wilson Tool the capability to supply companies with made-to-order bending tools and fabrication support parts in hours — not days or weeks.
The Bend3D® line of additively manufactured press brake tools work well as forming tools, air-bending tools and mark-free bending solutions. They are best suited for low-run jobs and longer running jobs of up to 1,000 hits or more, depending on the application. They work best on 14-gauge cold rolled or thinner and are available with a lead-time measured in days (not weeks) at lower cost than traditional tools.
The Solv3D® line of additively manufactured support parts can replace end-use parts that have traditionally been manufactured out of steel or plastic. They can replace items in a shop that often require an expensive mold to be created. They can even replace jigs or fixtures that hold things together, and can be used as a prototype.
Wilson Tool’s customer support team provides a dedicated group of sales engineers that are local and available for personal discussion. They also have trained tooling technicians and design engineers who are innovative and solution focused.
