Precise guide elements and die sets of the Swiss company AGATHON


Guide elements AGATHON

The guide elements AGATHON have their tradition in the watch-making industry. Everywhere where shearing is done with a very small blade clearance, exactly prestressed ball guide elements are required. By using guide elements from the company AGATHON, you will considerably prolong service life of your tools and extend intervals between re-grinding of tools. Thanks to very narrow production tolerances, the guide elements AGATHON are prestressed by exactly defined prestressing, which even at high speeds up to 2000 strokes/min guarantees accurate guide of piercing punches towards the matrix.

Die sets of AGATHON bush

All guide bushes AGATHON have narrow production tolerance in the degree of exactness IT 4, which guarantees their problem-free replaceability. Guide bushes are equipped with glue grooves for easy gluing into holes in the plate. These are produced in H5 tolerance. Die sets are produced in h3 tolerance and equipped with relief h8 for easy assembly. All tolerances of alignment, roundness and cylindrical character are for die sets of the bush within the range from 1 to 5 microns, everything with high precision of guide areas. The guide area is achieved by special technology. All these measures prolong service life of the die set-bush system.

Linear ball guides AGATHON

The ball guides AGATHON can be used not only in stamping technology, but also in designing of various devices. Due to their exactness, the linear ball guides are applied in machines where guides without clearance are necessary, in long axial movements; for example, on single-purpose assembly machines or in the textile industry and in the medicament production. Their special design is linear ball guides enabling at the same time axial and high speed radial movements. Here they can also be used at robotized workplaces of measuring technology.
