CNC Punch Profiling Sheet Metal
Hydram Sheet Metalwork's CNC punching service offers a cost effective precision profiling solution - with rapid processing speeds and lower operating costs than laser cutting.
Sheet metal profiling company
Punch profiling sheet metal is potentially a faster and cheaper method than laser cutting, depending on part complexity and batch size. Simpler profiles and larger volumes are ideally suited to punching. An additional benefit is that punching machines can generate simple formed features such as dimples, louvres, logo indentations and knock-outs, thus avoiding the need for additional operations.
CNC punching capacity
Hydram’s two automated CNC punching machines are capable of punching materials in thicknesses up to 5mm and sheet sizes up to 3 metres x 1.5 metres. The materials punch profiled include stainless steel, mild steel, aluminium, brass, copper and plastics. Using computer-assisted part nesting allows maximum material utilisation. The punching head also allows simple forming and tapping (threading) operations to be carried out during the same cycle, therefore saving the need for setting up secondary operations.
Metal profiling experience
Hydram Sheet Metalwork has provided a sheet metal punching service for over 25 years as part of its precision sheet metal fabrication business.
