Mate Precision Tooling’s new SuperMax tool coating answers today’s requirements for high performance, longer lasting punch press tooling. Providing a hard, wear resistant and lubricious coating, SuperMax acts as a barrier between the punch and sheet metal, greatly improving stripping and extending tool life.

A proprietary coating, SuperMax provides more hits between sharpening, which reduces machine downtime. SuperMax also reduces galling, slug pulling and corner breakdown enhancing the quality and efficiency of the punching process.

Outperforming currently available premium coatings by 2 to 8 times, SuperMax is applied using the very latest nano-layer technology. It is a harder, denser film that greatly increases wear resistance and a much lower friction coefficient of approximately 20 percent. This lower friction means less heat build-up, less galling (adhesion) and much longer tool life.

SuperMax works well on Mate’s M4PM, M2 and Durasteel punches in round, rectangle, oval and square punch configurations. Its application effectiveness includes 3000 and 5000 series aluminum, galvanized and stainless steels, pre-painted material, vinyl coated material and fiberglass.

“Mate SuperMax is a real breakthrough and the next generation in tool coating,” stated John Galich, Mate marketing manager. “It increases tool performance beyond anything that’s currently available, further substantiating Mate’s mission of providing superior solutions for sheet metal fabricators.”


Mate Laser Technologies introduces 1 Micron Optics for high power fiber lasers. These products include lenses, protective windows and nozzles for leading OEM brand laser systems.

Mate’s 1 Micron Optics feature extremely low absorption, fused silica substrates. The low-absorption anti-reflective coatings on the lenses and windows have a high laser-damage threshold for extra long-life. The low absorption feature ensures the highest cutting quality without the thermal lensing and focus shift that can reduce cutting speed and quality.

Mate’s line of fiber optics is applicable for all 1 micron applications in the 1030 – 1080 Nm range with ultra-low absorption (<50 ppm at 1.03 – 1.08 microns), a pinpoint focal length tolerance of ±0.5 percent and laser damage threshold higher than 10J.

Approved for use in leading brand fiber laser systems, the superior coating and low absorption fused silica UV grade lenses and mirrors make these the best performing optics. Mate’s high reflection laser mirror coating maximizes reflection, improving performance that prolong product life and deliver superior cutting quality.

Mate’s also offers UV-grade fused silica windows, used as debris shields to protect the 1 micron lenses, along with a complete line of copper/chrome nozzles. Mate’s fiber laser consumables are available for Amada, Cy, Cincinnati, Mitsubishi, Precitec, Prima, Salvagnini and Trumpf laser systems.
