Carbide Punches and Pins

Oliphant Tool Company

Forming A286 or 300-series Stainless? Inconel®? CAMTRONIC®?
No Problem!
For three decades, Oliphant Tool Company has narrowly specialized in the manufacture of carbide punches and pins for aerospace, medical, automotive, and electronics companies worldwide.  Combining three generations of manual tool and cutter grinding experience with expertise in cutting-edge technologies, all tooling is manufactured following strict quality procedures on state-of-the-art proprietary CNC equipment and comprehensive records of all manufacturing processes are kept in perpetuity for total traceability.

Proprietary CNC Technology for Superior Performance
Oliphant Tool Company not only produces carbide pins and punches, but also many of the machines used for their production.  Our proprietary CNC grinding technologies offer superior accuracy, perfect concentricity and excellent repeatability.  Each tool is produced to the highs of critical tolerance for maximum tool life while accuracy and repeatability in production ensures that each pin and punch offers predictable performance.  Predictable performance is a critical component of tool life.  Tooling that is not predictable has to be replaced early to protect the balance of the tooling kit from the catastrophic results of tool failure.  Our predictable performance gives operators confidence to run our tools longer, significantly longer than competing products.
