Acroform™ Die Inserts
For a quick and effective way to avoid die marks on stainless steel, pre-painted material, etc. simply position these 1" or 2" inserts in corresponding 90°bottom dies! The K•Prene® insert will conform to a variety of punch tips. In addition to eliminating the secondary procedure expense of removing die marks, your die will now act like a universal bottom die.
The maximum thickness capacity of the die remains the same when using Acroform™, but now you can also form lighter gauge materials. The forming of expanded metal or mesh is simplified, as cracking is reduced and often eliminated.
It is recommended to use insert lengths that are slightly longer than the actual bend length. Acroform™ inserts are manufactured in multiple lengths, or sections can be butted together for longer bends. To avoid insert separation, use a double-faced tape in the bottom die.
