High Speed CNC Punching for Medium to Large Volume Production

 

CNC Punching is a fast and cost effective method of creating holes in sheet metal for medium to high volume production batches.  The punching process forces a steel punch through the material into a die thereby creating the cut-out.  A nibbling process can also be used where the punched holes overlap leaving cut-outs and profiles in multiple shapes.

Our Muratec Motorum 2044 Punch has a 41 station turret with three auto indexing stations which help reduce tooling and set up costs.

Tooling

Falcon have an extensive stock of punch tooling including:

  • standard cut-outs
  • countersinks
  • louvers
  • dimples
  • electronic connector cut-outs
  • form tools

Using Radan® design and manufacture software we can maximise sheet utilisation and further reduce cost by automatically nesting punch jobs onto one sheet.

Our maximum sheet size is 2500mm x 1250mm, and we can punch in a range of materials up to the following thickness:

Material Thickness
Mild Steel Up to 4mm
Stainless Steel Up to 3mm
Aluminium Up to 5mm
Copper Up to 3mm
Brass Up to 4mm
Plastic Up to 6mm dependent on material type

By utilising our existing tooling profiles within your design you will be able to eliminate the necessity to purchase additional tooling – this will reduce both tooling costs and manufacturing lead time.  Our CAD/CAM engineers will be happy to offer advice on design and tool selection and a full list of Falcon’s tooling stock is available on request.
