From our own experience based on internal punching tests as well as feedback from customer's, we have learned that an increase of thickness from 2 mm to 2,5 mm produces a cleaner and more precise cutting pattern. Our serrated steel is only availabe in high-frequency hardened steel and thus indicates a 40% longer tool life than normal hardened steel. For further enquiries or special requirements, please do not hesitate to contact us. Our staff will be pleased to assist you.
