Safety and Speed

WILA takes no risks when it comes to safe working conditions. The Safety-Click®, Safety-pin, HD Safety-pin and E2M® (Easy to Move) features provide innovative and reliable safety features, which have been specifically developed for our New-Standard-beeldmerk and American Style Press Brake Tooling.


The WILA Safety-Click® safety mechanism is a key element of our New-Standard-beeldmerk and American Style Punches. The Safety-Click® makes it possible to change tools vertically by simply clicking them in and out of the clamping system. This also increases the speed at which press brake tooling are changed and reconfigured. In addition, this safety mechanism makes it possible to automatically change New-Standard-beeldmerk and American Style Tooling using a robot (ATC). The Safety-Click® is suitable for tools up to and including a weight of 28 pounds (12.5 kg).

Easy to Move (E2M®)

The WILA Easy to Move® (E2M) bearing system is a system designed for quick and safe handling of heavy top and bottom tools in and out of the Tool Holders. This improvement in change-related convenience considerably reduces configuration time and has a positive impact on productivity. 

New Standard top and bottom tools are equipped with special (pre-assembled) bearings, which allow you to move the tools laterally in a non-clamped state quickly and safely without using a lot of force. The Tool Holders should be equipped with a roll-out prevention.

Safety comes first. That is why a limit of 28 pounds (12.5 kg) has been implemented for vertically loading and unloading of all Punches. Above this weight, all punches can only be loaded and unloaded horizontally.  Punches that weigh between 28 pounds (12.5 kg) and 55 pounds (25 kg) feature a standard safety-pin.

HD Safety-pin

Press brake tools that weigh between 55 pounds (25 kg) and 330 pounds (150 kg) are always equipped with our extra-strong HD safety-pins, which are suitable for heavy duty use.


Especially for the American Style II top tools there is a Safety-Key. This Safety-Key is applicable for tool weight between 28 pounds (12,5 kg) and 330 pounds (150 kg).
