LEANTOOL System - Standardized tool kit

With the LEANTOOL System (Radial / Progressive) for RM-NC and GRM-NC servo stamping and forming machines, you implement radial bending tools and linear progressive tools easier, faster and cheaper. The modular system impresses with perfect consistency from planning through design and manufacturing all the way to production. You benefit from shortest implementation times, up to 70% lower costs compared to tools on mechanical machines as well as extremely fast “Time-to-Market” for classical stamped and formed parts as well as more complex progressive components.

Secure your future with Bihler.


Implementing new tools according to the linear, progressive and progressive component principle

Highlights at a glance

  • Up to 70% standard tools regardless of task
  • Up to 50% lower manufacturing costs compared to conventional progressive tools
  • Simpler tool technology, since tool movements from 3 sides are performed by the machine by default
  • No strip lifting in the tool
  • Less material waste compared to conventional progressive tool solutions

LEANTOOL Progressive combines the strengths of traditional progressive tool technology with the strengths of Bihler machine technology. The tools consist of a large number of standardized tool parts made of standard parts and blanks. The machine allows individually controllable movements that can be implemented from above, from below and from the side. All this reduces the overall effort and complexity in the tool and guarantees simplicity, speed and safety.


Implementing new tools according to the radial principle

Highlights at a glance

  • Up to 70% standard tools regardless of task
  • Up to 70% lower manufacturing costs compared to conventional radial tools
  • Bending in the ideal grain direction
  • Strip width in accordance with part width: production with minimum material waste
  • Optimum bending angle infinitely adjustable

LEANTOOL Radial is an intelligent optimization of the existing Bihler radial principle. Thanks to the innovative features of the (G)RM-NC servo machines and the servo-controlled bending units, the number of parts in a LEANTOOL radial tool can be reduced to a minimum. The tool parts also consist of 70% standard parts, and do not have to be reworked or only have to be reworked slightly.


Perfect support for your success

Our LEANTOOL experts support you in finding the solution for new stamping and forming tasks on the servo-controlled RM-NC and GRM-NC machines. As early as the bidding phase, they demonstrate how to plan a new stamped and formed part perfectly and offer it cost-effectively.
