Specific SAFE-SERT inserts can retro-fit and convert any standard-tongue press brake die to a safety-tongue configuration.

SAFE-SERT fittings (Patent Pending) insert flush into holes machined in the side of the tongue and tangential to its top edge. Only the profile of each SAFE-SERT's safety tab protrudes from the tongue to engage the press clamp. Each SAFE-SERT is friction-secured with a countersunk Allen head screw.

The machined through-holes allow SAFE-SERTs to be switched to either side for use on reversible gooseneck configurations. SAFE-SERTs can be installed in tooling segments as short as 1" to help prevent drop-outs.
