These bronze-plated low profile demountable bushings are designed so that the main body of the bushing is contained within the punch holder while only a minimum of the bushing projects below the punch holder and into the die area. With minimal bushing projection, this model is ideal for dies running in presses with automatic transfer devices. Since the bushings do not need removed during grinding, it is well suited for applications that require often die sharpening. All bushings are also equipped with oil grooves.
Demountable bushings are tap fit into location and seat flush with the ground face of the punch holder. The bushings are held in place with toe clamps and screws which provide perfect alignment of the bushing with the bore perpendicular to the ground surface of the punch holder. The clamp and screws provide four times the holding power compared to pressed-in bushings, yet they can be easily removed and assembled thus simplifying die building and maintenance.
