CNC punching sheet metal work
CNC Punching corner rads and holes with banana tools in sheet metal components is simple with a Trumpf CNC punching machine. We have a range of CNC punching corner radius tools and banana tools which can be seen on our 2D standard tooling pages. The photos here show a corner radius tool with R2, R3, R4 and R5 corners all built into one CNC tool. The ability of the Trumpf CNC punch presses to rotate any CNC tool through 360 degrees mean that these tools can be rotated instantly to the correct position ready to punch a corner radius on any sheet metal component required.
The same concept and be applied to a banana tool. This style of CNC punch tool can be rotated in the Trumpf punching head and indexed as the circular hole is punched. The inner scrap piece of metal can then be dropped straight down the machine chute in the bed of the punch press and into a collecting bin below thereby removing the risk of it damaging the sheet metal surface.

These features are just a small illustration of the range of manufacturing techniques we can apply to CNC punching sheet metal work with our Trumpf CNC punch presses. There maybe many components that you are not sure can be manufactured or are having produced now that we can improve for you, please give us a call on 01489 577786 to discuss your sheet metal work designs.
