Rolling Form Tool
By Don Angel, Applications Engineer
  What can a Rolling Form Tool do to add value to my part? 

Mate Roller Ball 

Solution:  Both Wilson Tool  and Mate Precision Tooling provide Rolling Form type tools. Although there are other specialty tools in this area, the typical tools produce ribs or offsets. The rolling tools take advantage of our machines' capability to lower the ram and move the X and Y table axes in a synchronized motion.

The forms created by these tools can be produced with special forming tools in a punching sequence, however, the results are often less than satisfactory and time consuming. The rolling tools generate smooth forms faster and without the nibble marks.                                                                                                      
                                                                                          Roller Ball Example
Most software CAM systems support these types of tools and generating machine code can be as easy as a couple of mouse clicks. Ribs can be produced for panel stiffening, allowing thinner, less costly material to be used.  Offsets can produce raised flanges or oversized embosses that previously had to be produced in a secondary operation.


Murata supports the use of all wheel type tools in our machines.

Project Managers
 By Mike Duggan, Supervisor
     Project Management
At Murata Machinery, a Project Manager is assigned to all punch press orders to ensure the project is processed accurately, smoothly and on time.  After receipt of a purchase order, the PM will make sure all components and accessories are ordered and staged for delivery with the machine.
During the project, the PM monitors the design phase, build phase, and execution to ensure on-time delivery of your machine order.  Throughout the order process, the PM updates the customer on the project progress and works through any details that arise.
At project completion, the PM coordinates delivery and installation.  After delivery and installation on the customer's floor, the PM resolves all open issues and makes sure personnel are properly trained to guarantee maximum productivity from your investment.
