Meusburger adds the E 55301 Mounting sleeve from pre-toughened tool steel 1.2312 to its selection of punching tools. The new product is complimentary to the E 5530 Bottle-neck cutting punch, which was specially developed for high punching and retracting forces. The special shape of the punch head prevents compression and the breaking of the head. The E 55301 Mounting sleeve allows for an easier insertion of the bottle neck contour in the punch retainer plate. Only a cylinder recess is required for the installation of the cutting punch. As usual with Meusburger, the new product is available from stock.
