The Universal Base Tool consists of:

  • Base top tool for 1 dynamic insert in a slide
  • Base bottom tool including loading jig with N2 supply
  • Product height conversion set from 0,01-70 mm
  • 1x film roll, 50um thickness, 160 mm width, 100m length

Dynamic Insert Units are available separately and include the standard 66x66mm and a 22x22mm option. Pistons are also available in the following options:  55mm (standard), 100mm, 25mm, 7.5mm.
