CNC punching sheet metal light fitting components
Fast Tube by Casper
Trumpf CNC punch presses can be so flexible when producing thin gauge sheet metal components. These thin gauge zintec coated mild steel sheet metal panels are part of a flood light fitting cover plate. Inside each panel there is a window being cut out using a 70 x 5 rectangular tool with the waste material falling through the bed of the machine down a chute and into the waste bin. This feature on our Trumpf 3000R CNC punch press enables us to quickly remove the scrap metal without having to stop the machine or leaving it held in place with corner tags that would then need to be removed and de-burred. The advantage of this type of production method of laser cutting is the ability to form in features such as standoffs, wall spacing dimples, ventilation louvres, earth symbol stamps, electrical knockouts etc.
If you have a sheet metal component that needs manufacturing we would be happy to take a look at it for you and quote either for CNC punching or laser cutting depending on the part’s design.
