Why Die Clearance Matters?

Proper clearance between the punch and die is essential for piercing a well-made hole efficiently. Too much punch and die clearance results in more rollover deformation where the punch enters the material and a large burr on the die side. With proper clearance between the punch and die, there will be minimal rollover deformation around the […]Read More
