Wila's American Style top tools can be used on all press brakes equipped with an American Style adaptation. This adaptation is almost solely used in North America and is characterized by a centrally-located clamp opening, making it theoretically possible to turn tools around. Here too, it is not possible to change tools vertically; all tools must be horizontally slid in and out of the clamp holders. Distinctive properties of Wila’s American Style top tools include their different length, as well as their specially-designed shape, which is often slightly different from what is commonly seen. For air bending in particular, the Wila program offers more possibilities. With a limited number of models, the same high functionality is achieved. Advantages for the customer: lower tool costs and fewer changeovers.
Wila's American Style bottom tools can be used on all press brakes equipped with a clamping slot measuring at least 13.5 x 18 mm / 0.531" x 0.708" (W x H). Although this adaptation is virtually the same as the clamping slot commonly used in Europe, measuring 13.5 x 23 mm / 0.531" x 0.906", these tools are not directly interchangeable due to the differences in these slots. Because Wila recently modified the tang on its New Standard bottom tools specifically for this application, now they can also be used in clamping holders made in North America. The unique aspects of Wila’s American Style bottom tools include their different length, which makes handling much easier. In addition, the Wila program offers a balanced mix of both air-bending and bottom-bending tools.
