Battery Grid Punching dies can be configured so you can produce grids with up to 5 different heights from the same die. OAK takes this a step further with our exclusive Self-Storing Tooling feature. This feature allows you to change grid heights in about 30 minutes, while conventional dies can take up to 7 hours to change grid heights. Giving you over 6 hours of extra production time every time you change grid heights. This extra production time can add up to millions of extra grids over a year.
The trick to the OAK Self-Storing Tooling feature is that all the tooling sections for the different grid heights are always in the die. All you have to do to change heights is engage the tooling section for the heights you want to make. With conventional dies the tooling sections for different heights have to be manually installed or removed to change heights. This time consuming process requires the die to be removed from the press and disassembled. You also have the chance of damaging tooling during the height changeover or misplacing the tooling when not in use. This is not an issue or concern with the OAK dies
