Wilson Tool International Inc. filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Mate Precision Tooling on October 10, 2017, in the Federal District Court for the District of Minnesota.
The lawsuit alleges that Mate’s Ultra QCT – Quick Change Thick Turret Tooling System line of products infringes U.S. Patent Nos. 9,687,994 and 9,776,337, both titled "Punch Assemblies and Methods for Modifying."
Wilson Tool’s EXP® and HPX® quick-change punch tip technology and guide assemblies combine lower cost with faster setup, increased life between sharpening, and greater versatility. The EXP® and HPX® solutions provide longer-lasting punch tips, and enable customers to quickly change punch tips without the need to change the entire punch holder, lowering their costs and saving valuable time.
