Aluminum Die Sets
Any die set offered by Anchor Danly in steel can also be manufactured from aluminum.
Aluminum die sets weigh approximately one-third as much as an identical size steel die set, thus reducing press wear. They are easier to handle, transport and store. When made with ball bearing components, these are available and are ideally suited for high speed, high precision applications. Aluminum die sets are often used when stamping precision components for the electronic and canning industries.
Aluminum die sets, in conjunction with ball bearing components, provide a lightweight, highly accurate guidance system. Ball bearing components under preload have superior guidance when compared with plain bearing components’ clearance fits.
