DaySet from Dayton Progress is a complete tooling system designed for the production of high-quality, cost-effective stamped products in a single-step operation. The system can produce stamped parts in a variety of thicknesses, sizes, shapes and materials, even in short runs. The tooling system is well-suited for short and medium runs, prototyping and quick change-over environments in a variety of industries, including aerospace, agriculture, automotive, consumer goods, commercial engines, factory automation, marine, material handling, medical/scientific, defense, pharmaceutical and transportation.
The pre-assembled master compound die is a precision-made die set that works with the compound tooling to provide a complete system for producing flat blanks (such as washers) in a single press stroke. The two-post die set with adjustable guides includes a knockout and a key for irregular shapes. Tool change-over is said to be accomplished in less than 15 min. in a master compound with identical registry without manual alignment. Change-over to different tooling for a different size or shape part can be achieved by removing screws and replacing the tool.
