Versatile Punches, Pilots, Die Buttons, and Retainers are built to exact tolerances and concentricity to provide superior alignment, better performance, longer runs, and less downtime.
VersaPlus Jektole, Regular, and straight punches are a premium line of precision, high-performance products that offer a full range of features and benefits to users in industries where higher-than-normal production runs occur - and where optimum performance is a MUST.
Dayton Ball Lock products are used in high volume applications where dies are large and cannot be easily removed for maintenance. The ball lock concept allows for the convenient replacement of worn punches and buttons without removing the die from the press, saving many hours of downtime.
Dayton Kommercial (inch) and Press Fit (metric) products are the economical answer for basic single station and progressive dies not requiring the precision of Versatile. Punches, buttons, and retainers are highly standardized to provide maximum economy.
TuffPunch punches and punch blanks are Kommercial quality products manufactured with thicker, larger, and 10° angled diameter heads, and are designed to reduce punch load and significantly lower failure rates when using heavy gauge and high tensile material.
EVERLAST® is a state-of-the-art, proprietary process that alters the structure of the tool steel at the molecular level, creating a metal fabricating tool typically lasting 3 to 5 times longer than an untreated tool.
Dayton's WedgeLock Precision Retaining System utilizes a unique wedge-shaped locking mechanism, yet allows tools to be changed without reassembling the die. Dayton's WedgeLock system has a wide range of applications in the metal stamping, forming, and fabricating industries.
Dayton Progress offers a variety of retainers for headed and ball lock punches.
Dayton Progress manufactures a full range of precision metal stampings and other specialized tooling components. We have developed hundreds of per-print "special" tools that have been used in a wide range of manufacturing processes.
Long life, high stripping force, and solid quality make DAYStrip the ideal stripper. Three different sizes are available to fit most Dayton Progress retainers. DAYStrip strippers can be ordered semifinished (blanks) to be finished by customer.
Closed End Urethane Strippers assure positive stripping and at the same time dampen punch vibration by gripping around the punch point. Since vibration can lead to premature punch failure, using DAYTON PROGRESS Urethane Strippers will increase overall punch life.
Dayton Versatile and Kommercial Compact Positive Pick-Up Pilots, mounted in a guided stripper, provide exceptional resistance to lateral deflection.
Dayton EZ Fit Ball Lock Retainer Inserts give you the ability to reconfigure and custom-make retainers in-house as die specifications change.
The CUMSA Marking Unit from Dayton Progress features easy to read numbers to mark parts with date, part number, lot number or other numerical identifiers.
Dayton Progress is now offering a full line of "standard" form punches that offer a wide range of piercing and extruding applications. These 37 new point configurations are available on all Dayton Progress round punches
Dayton Maxlife die springs offer a selection of hundreds of different springs in a full range of diameters and lengths to meet your needs. Our die springs are manufactured from pre-tempered chrome silicon wire produced from specially prepared valve spring quality rod.
Dayton Broaching Tools give manufacturers the ability to produce highly specialized, high-demand products for the medical, dental, and aerospace industries... products such as bone screws, dental implants, and aircraft assembly parts.
Dayton's Posi-Loc™ Positive Locking Mechanism is designed to eliminate "ball bouncing" in retainers. In high-demand punching, especially when high strength, lighter weight steels are used, bouncing can have a negative effect on punching accuracy and tool life.
Dayton's DAYLube™ NanoCeramic Lubricating Grease is a leading edge, extremely high-performance lubricant that has a wide range of industrial applications. DAYLube™ utilizes nano ceramic particles that act as sub-microscopic "bearings," providing continuous lubrication to steel surfaces.
Dayton Thread Form Punch & Die Button Units offer you a single-step method for punching and forming threads. Dayton Thread Form works by punching the hole, lancing the material, and cutting a helical spiral in the material to form the proper thread helix for the desired type of metal screw.
Dayton DAYSet Compound Tooling offers you a complete system (punches, stripper, die button, knockout, compound) for producing high-quality, cost-effective stampings.
