Punch and Die Punching systems Change retainers

Change retainers

Change retainers are used where different hole patterns are required. Various hole patterns can be accomplished without the need for multiple dies. Different parts, such as right and left hand can be run in one die.
Changing hole patterns takes only minutes, sometimes only seconds. A bar holding the punch in position is released to allow the punch to retract up far enough to avoid contact with the material.

Change Retainer - Manual Type

Manual adaptable retainer for processed where different hole patterns are required. No need for multiple dies.
