Mate Precision Tooling Expands Press Brake Tooling Line with CleanBend™ Forming Technology

ANOKA, Minn., Aug. 19, 2015 /CNW/ -- Mate Precision Tooling, a world-leading manufacturer and provider of tooling solutions for sheet metal fabricators, announced it is expanding its press brake tooling product line with the addition of Mate CleanBend forming technology. The CleanBend tool is available in both European Precision Style and Wila Trumpf Style tooling and can be adapted to American Precision Style tooling.

The Mate CleanBend tool is designed with two opposing spring-loaded half-moon rollers that rotate as force is applied in the middle of the die, resulting in a clean bend with minimal to no marking of the sheet metal. Primary applications include bending:

  • Short flange
  • Flange to a diagonal sharp
  • Across preexisting holes
  • Across a notch or gap
  • Sensitive or delicate materials
  • Highly polished materials
  • Painted or coated surfaces
  • Materials with foil or plastic coverings
  • Tread plate

"CleanBend is an important extension of our press brake tooling line," stated Vice President of Business Development, Frank Baeumler. "We can now offer customers added capabilities and functionality to produce more with their press brakes." 

After setting the standard for CNC punch press tooling for over 50 years and supporting laser consumables products for nearly two decades, Mate successfully launched its line of press brake tooling last summer. The press brake tooling is precision ground and induction hardened for extra durability. It includes an expansive array of punches, dies, modified standards, specials and accessories. They are available in segmented, full-length and half-length sizes to suit nearly any metal bending application.


Founded in 1962 and headquartered in Anoka, Minn., USA, Mate Precision Tooling is a leading global manufacturer of original and replacement CNC punch press tooling, laser consumables and press brake tooling. Mate holds numerous patents worldwide. Mate's leadership position is the result of five decades of specialization, service and customer satisfaction. End users and original equipment manufacturers look to Mate for innovation in a wide range of products including punch holders, die holders, cartridges, multi-tools and more.
