Unlike the round guide pillars and bushes described in DIN 9833 and DIN 9834, heel guidings offer a simple and affordable guidance system which is widely used with medium and large stamping and forming dies made from casting and steel plate. Heel guidings have proved particularly effective in steel plate dies.
Heel guidings are designed to guide the upper and lower die shoe to facilitate tool set-up and try out and to retain the clearance (bending or drawing gap) during the service life.
