A metal punching machine is a key piece of equipment in the sheet metal industry. In addition, it is a key technique used to shape custom metal forms, for a variety of industries. Therefore, with a quality metal punching machine you can create a variety of customised shapes, out of varying thicknesses of sheet metal. At The Workshop Press Company UK, we supply top quality metal punching machines.

HOW DOES A METAL HOLE PUNCHING MACHINE WORK? Metal punching is carried out by using heavy machinery. For instance, the Workshop Press’ Profi Punch 16 Ton. This hydraulic punching machine, can not only be in use as a punching machine but also as a small C-Frame press. However, this machine can create holes and indents in a piece of metal and the principle is relatively simple:

The sheet metal is placed between the punch and a die. Then, the punch moves downward and into the die. This causes the sheet metal underneath the punch to be sheared away from the surrounding material. After that, cut metal is collected into a container for use or recycling. Steps 1 – 3 are repeated until the desired shape is achieved. WHICH METALS ARE PUNCHABLE? Thanks to the evolution of the sheet metal cutting machine, almost all metals can be punched. Such as, iron, stainless steel, aluminium, copper, brass and special alloys. Therefore, this versatility has led to the metal punching machines being a staple in a wide range of fields. For instance: metal fabrication, engineering, automotive, manufacturing, electronics, textiles and many others.
