STANDARD TONGUE DIMENSIONS
Normally 1/2" wide x 5/8" deep tongue are finished to fit most average type press brakes.
HOOK TONGUE OR SAFETY TONGUE
Where punch is to be segmented (i.e., as in box forming, or where weight or stripping pressure can cause punch to
leave ram slot) we recommend the addition of a tongue with a standard type safety tip.
Where extra durability or wear life is needed, such as maintenance of radii or wear surfaces we can supply flame
hardened dies at extra cost.
While every effort is made to provide good surface finish on each Riteway die, we suggest that when forming
materials requiring a minimum of marking that they be supplied with a superfine polished finish of approximately
10 micro-inch for which there is a nominal extra charge.
Reworking or resurfacing of existing dies is available at nominal cost. Special consideration is given to completion
of this type of work, but we do suggest contacting us to arrange timing of die return to ensure minimum delay.
