Box tooling is 6.3 in. in height, and precision-ground and laser-hardened to 60 HRC. An optional left-hand or right-hand backgauge extension reportedly provides superior material positioning.

Its Synergy control system offers multiple methods of programming, from simple line-by-line to draw-to-auto program, and its network capabilities allow for multiple integrations and overall shop management through the linking of multiple machines.
