The TS model uses Wiedemann-style
push/pull tooling, while the TS-S model
uses spring-style tooling.
With the push/pull tooling, the ram,
punch holder, and punch are connected
to achieve a push/pull action (positive
stripping) through the entire punching
cycle. Available tooling styles include
the traditional 112 and 114, Mate Mara-thon®, and Wilson HP™.
The spring-style turret enables operators to use tooling from existing inventory. New, quick-release die holders allow fast tool changes with single-touch
opening of turret covers.

Productivity increases of 15-30% are being realized with the revolutionary WELDPRO 360. Not your Grandfather’s weld boom–this is a modern state-of-the-art welding center. Every tool the weld operator needs is placed at their fingertips. With the flip of a switch, this double-articulated boom rotates into position, anywhere within a 56 ft. diameter weld zone. Unlimited rotation around the center-support column, along with a secondary boom arm that pivots back towards the center column–in either direction, delivers total coverage of the welding zone. No dead spots. No cables to drag. No wasted mo- tion. Arc on-time soars. If you are looking to slash your welding costs in a significant way, then you’re ready for the revolutionary WELDPRO 360 welding center. Let us show you how you can take control of weld productivity, improve product quality, and enhance operator safety with a WELDPRO 360 welding center. www.weldpro360.com Andersen Industries, Inc. - 17079 Muskrat Ave, Adelanto, CA 92301 USA Ph. 760.246.8766

portfolio, adding a 6-kW fiber laser source for its 3015 and 4020
machine formats. The higher power increases cutting speed in thin and medi-um-thick sheet metals.
BySprint Fiber 4020 accommodates
larger sheet sizes and delivers 78 percent additional cutting area and 78 percent larger part processing capability
than the BySprint Fiber 3015. Equipped
with the company’s ByTrans Extended

models generate highly productive and
efficient job flows, says the company.
Pneumatic clamping systems
for press brakes
Wila USA has introduced a line of upper and lower New Standard® Premium
pneumatic clamping systems with patented self-locking mechanism for press
brakes. Designed for use with the company’s New Standard punches and dies, the
clamping systems use shop air pressure.
The systems clamp and unclamp
tools quickly. They are suited for electric press brakes and press brakes with
automatic tool change.
