WTG coated punches generate a higher quality fastener due to smoother surfaces and better dimensional stability from piece to piece.

Reduce Energy and Lubricant Requirements

A product with a longer lifespan is going to reduce energy due to the amount of times it has to be adjusted. A higher quality product is also going to need less lubricant than one than is worn down.

Note that it is not uncommon for WTP coated punches to last 3 to 5 and even 10 times longer than uncoated plain punches.
