The article features Fab Supply Inc.'s precision-ground American-style press brake tooling adopted by AGCO Corp,'s Jackson, Minnesota facility to streamline production of tractors, hay tools and sprayers. Fab Supply retained tool profile samples used as templates for precision-planned, match-cut replacement tools thereby eliminating need for AGCO to rewrite computer numeric control (CNC) programs. AGCO purchased adjustable Rolla-V die for its bending operations.
