Punches, Buttons, Springs, & Die Details

The Porter Difference – Cyrogenic Treatment

Since the 1960’s Porter Precision recognized and offered our customers deep cryogenics.  While some of our competition offer “shallow treatments” Porter does not cut corners. Our “Deep Cryogenics” offer our customers the best: dimensional stability, impact resistance, and wear resistance our customers expect. All our standard Precision and head type punch line are “Deep Cryogenically” treated.

Please contact us for a quote and size limitations.

The Benefits

  • Forms very fine carbide particles throughout the material and increases wear resistance.
  • Results in a tougher substrate further increasing part life through reduced impact failures.
  • Reduces internal stresses and eliminates movement during the machining process.
  • Provides increased durability, tensile strength, toughness and stability.
  • Extra life can vary from 100 to 400 % depending on the tool type and the application.
  • Requires only one treatment. As it is a through part molecular change, not a surface layer, the results last the life of the tool. Sharpening will NOT eliminate the benefits

Punches & Dies 

punches-homepagePorter has always provided the stamping world with complete lines of both inch and metric standardized components. Facilities in Ohio, Georgia, and Canada produce these standard items sized to customer callout quickly and economically. First class deliveries without exorbitant added costs have made Porter a favorite in die shops everywhere.

Adding the metric line of standard punches and die buttons was an asset Porter provided to industry as the metric market first began to be a factor in the United States. Even today Porter has available metric items not commonly known to many uses such as the Trumpet Head punch and retainer line.

Huge inventories of both ball-lock and head type retainers are available for Porter customers on an immediate delivery basis. For new tools or engineering changes this capability makes the end user much more able to get his tools into production.  Hard copy Catalogs showing these products are available from your Gro-Mac contact or digitally from the website.
