This patented machine is a portable machine that is used to put slug retention grooves into any die cavity, or as we call it SlugKeeper Grooves. Allowing the die slug to expanded into the grooves locking the slug in the die cavity so it does not pull out on to the die surface from the vacuum of the punch or oil on the strip while the punch pulls out of the opening which will causing damage to the strip or production parts or even cause expensive die damage resulting in costly repairs and down time.

  • DTC Products’ Slug Retention Machine Prevents

    Potentially Damaging Slugs from Pulling During Stamping

    Booth A1239

                DTC Products, a division of Dec Tool Corporation, will exhibit its Slug Retention Machine, that prevents slugs from pulling back onto the die block, at All FABTECH 2018 SHOWS. The unique device uses a pneumatically-powered grinder to precisely machine a small angled groove into the sidewall of the die cavity in a stamping die in order to prevent slugs from pulling onto the die surface where they can damage the metal strip, the stamped part or the stamping die itself.

                The device includes a one thumb screw to quickly adjust the grinder height, a plunger style grinder head assembly, and a grinder head adjustable depth stop to control the grinder’s depth into the die cavity. Each of these features helps the operator quickly and more accurately position and control the grinder position.

                The grinder assembly is adjustable to three height positions, each ½ inch apart, enabling it to work with a wider range of part thicknesses, and features flex lights which the operator can position to see clearly into the cavity, providing better visual inspection of the work area.

                The groove produced by the grinder is 0.025mm to 0.127mm deep and machined at an angle of 3-5 degrees to the die surface, which creates a precise amount of slug interference. During stamping, slugs expand into these precision grooves, which prevents them from pulling out of the die cavity and onto the die surface where they can cause expensive damage to the stamping die or to parts which will have to be scrapped.



                DTC Products Corporation is owned by the owners of Dec Tool Corporation, which has been a leader in designing and building of tools, dies, jigs, fixtures and die components, utilizing equipment such as Wire EDM, CNC Mills, CNC Lathes, Conventional EDM, Hole Popping, and Jig Grinders; and also has stamping lines with presses from 20 tons to 250 tons.
