Produced to industry standards and designed for diversity of performance, they are manufactured in quantity for maximum economy of purchase.
Midwest Press Brake Dies Acutuf tooling, unless otherwise indicated, is made from pre-hardened chrome-carbon brake die steel with a mean 280 Brinnell hardness throughout, with excellent compressive strength and wear characteristics it tends to work harden as it is used. It can be modified or re-machined without annealing or re-hardening.
All Midwest Press Brake Die tooling is precision machined with extra care given to applying our unique tool finish, which reduces part marking. For over 35 years, the Midwest finish has been easily recognized and admired, but has yet to be duplicated. This combined with carefully engineered radii on punches and dies, reduces tonnage and marking. Precision grinding is also available by Midwest Press for the ultimate in precision.
