Prestressing Tool Solutions and precision forming tools and dies consisting of high-strength stripwound containers made by the stripwinding technique.
The STRECON Containers are made of a unique steel strip material which makes the containers twice as strong as conventional tool systems with steel die compression rings, also called forming die holders, stress rings, double rings, triple rings, retainers, and reinforcement rings, among others.
The high strength of the STRECON containers is an effect of the stripwinding technique, which ensures that the containers remain fully elastic even at max process pressure.
This product feature offers exclusive advantages such as higher service life of the forming tool and forming dies, and a prestressing tool that can be reused numerous times at full capacity.
The STRECON tool system is mostly used for precision forging of tools including cold forging dies (also known as cold heading) and warm forging dies, as well as comparable metal forming tools.
