Producing circles in sheet metal is easy with a Trumpf CNC punch press
Sheet metal circles
Yes we can produce circles, semi-circles, rings and large holes in sheet metal components with our fibre laser cutter. Sometimes it suits us to us one of our Trumpf CNC punch presses to produce the sheet metal circles. Using a CNC punching technique along with radii tools called “banana” tools the circles can be produce with just a few hits. Using these special tools enables us to produce parts with very few hits, saying time and money and also reducing the cleaning up time as a secondary operation.
This view shows just how easy it is to layout a sheet of circular components using Radan sheet metal programming software. The components can be laid out to produce the maximum number of parts per sheet and even punching between the machine clamps on the sheet.
Perhaps you have a sheet metal project that needs a large circular cut-out or a disc / ring as show here. Please give us a call and we will be happy to see what we can to do to either CNC punch or laser cut the shapes you want in either ferrous or non-ferrous material in a range of thicknesses.
