Standardized tool height and minimum tool inventory! Multiple punch and die profiles have a common stroke, making 90°stages, sharp angle stages, hemming stages and offset stages on one press brake possible. Research and development at AMADA has always been very important in the tool technology department as well. In order to guarantee consistently good quality and high precision, all bending tools are produced on modern computer-controlled manufacturing systems. Material properties and the way materials perform in practice are continuously reviewed and evaluated at AMADA research centers.
