Our range

More information

These high-quality, precision products make it possible to design and produce tools with guaranteed optimum performance and long working life.

There are two distinct types of guide: cylindrical guides and ball bearing guides. The range of steel guiding components that includes straight and stepped pillars (with or without centering plugs), and headed and headless steel, sintered and bronze bushes with self-lubricating inserts meets the majority of requirements for the design of ISO- and DIN-compliant molds and punching/stamping tools.

Our longstanding expertise in the manufacture of pillars and bushes, the choice of high-quality steels and faultless heat treatment together guarantee a level of quality unmatched anywhere else in the market, and long-term economies in terms of tool wear.
