  • Smooth-edge surfaces up to 100% shear
  • Minimal hole and position tolerance requirements at 0.025mm (0.001″)
  • Superior flatness at 0.025mm (.001″) per linear inch
  • Holes can be pierced close to part edges: Web of 50% of material thickness
  • Net part shape from a single-station or progressive die
  • Gripflow™ tooling is less than fineblanking dies due to the elimination of the V-ring
  • Gripflow™ unit prices are typically less than fineblanking as a result of greater material utilization and tonnage efficiency
  • Gripflow™ tooling is significantly less than conventional stamping with progressive stations. These savings are a result of multiple operations performed in a single-station die
  • Gripflow™ unit prices can compete with conventional stamping if secondary operations are avoided
