FinMaster – Die (FMTS)


FinMaster - Die (FMTS)In conjunction with the Model FM-4 FinMaster ™, Tridan has developed a comprehensive and dedicated system of stamping tooling stations for the progressive forming of plate-type fins or other needed manufacturing components. Divided into discrete “stations” (drawing, piercing, extruding, etc.) that can be installed into the FinMaster™. Also, it can be individual “sub-dies”, this system of tooling allows the FinMaster™, to produce fins. In addition, other stamped components quickly, easily, and with great economy.

It should be noted that this tooling is specifically designed for loading into a TRIDAN FinMaster™ Fin Line. It has not been designed to adapt to any other press, but may work in equipment other than Tridan’s. Please contact Tridan with your specific requirements and specifications and we can determine the feasibility of such additional use.


Tridan’s many years of experience in building progressive fin die. This provides coil-makers with the following benefits of high-quality fins with a maximum extended life of die components:

NEAR-PERFECT FIN COLLARS – That provides the easier insertion of the tubes into the fin cores. Also, this maximizes primary-to-secondary heat transfer and allows the use of the thinnest fin stock materials.

EXCELLENT FEED REGISTER – The improved stock piloting in the die further increases the register accuracy. Also, the potential feeding speed of the S-C Type Feeding System.

NO STRIPPER PINS – The absence of stripper pins aids in the stock piloting function, and eliminates the unsightly stripper pin marks from the fin surface that are unacceptable on the newer enhanced fin forms.

MINIMIZED DOWNTIME – The self-purging compound pierce/straightening station removes metal particles, which could accumulate in this station, and cause shutdowns for cleaning and/or bushing replacement.

TRIDAN is proud of its many achievements in the special machinery field, but its Superform fin die design, along with its self-contained Feeding System, now adapted for use in the FinMaster™, are among the most significant.
