HOW A QUALITY METAL PUNCHING MACHINE CAN HELP YOU

HOW A QUALITY METAL PUNCHING MACHINE CAN HELP YOU
15/09/2019

A metal punching machine is a key piece of equipment in the sheet metal industry. It is also a key technique used to shape custom metal forms, for a variety of industries. With a quality metal punching machine you can create a variety of customised shapes, out of varying thicknesses of sheet metal.

BUT, HOW DOES A METAL HOLE PUNCHING MACHINE WORK? Metal punching is carried out by using heavy machinery, such as the Workshop Press’ Profi Punch 16 Ton. This metal punching machine can create holes and indents in a piece of metal. The principle is relatively simple:

The sheet metal is placed between the punch and a die. The punch moves downward and into the die. This causes the sheet metal underneath the punch to be sheared away from the surrounding material. The cut metal is collected into a container for use or recycling. Steps 1 – 3 are repeated until the desired shape is achieved.

WHICH METALS CAN BE PUNCHED? Thanks to the evolution of the sheet metal cutting machine, almost all metals can be punched: iron, stainless steel, aluminium, copper, brass and special alloys. This versatility has led to the metal punching machine being a staple in a wide range of fields: metal fabrication, engineering, automotive, manufacturing, electronics, textiles and many others.

THE BENEFITS OF SHEET METAL PROFI PUNCH PUNCHING MACHINE: Ease of setup and use Quick changeovers Efficiency and accuracy of punching processes Machines are built in EU with high-quality metal and components Affordable to purchase and maintain Sheet metal punching is often the cheapest method for creating holes in sheet materials, in both medium and high volume productions.

QUALITY METAL PUNCHING The quality of each punch is determined by a few critical factors, including:

The size and structure the punch press The available tonnage of the punching machine The quality of the punches and dies being used The condition of the punches and dies. Punching tools are suitable for so many “strokes” only before becoming too worn to make clean punches. The thickness of the metal being punched. The type of metal being punched.
