CNC punched mild steel panels
When we wanted to produce a batch of galvanised mild steel gear trays which would be bent up to make channels the only solution was to CNC punch them on one of our Trumpf punch presses. Not only could the CNC punch press produce the holes and outer profile in the sheet it was also used to form in a customer designed feature, more details shown below. The samples and then the production were both manufactured on the CNC punch press making it such a versatile machine in our sub-contract engineering factory.
Formed sheet metal louvre in mild steel
To produce specific single hit forms dedicated CNC punch press tooling is needed. Here we have a lance / form that was needed in a thin gauge galvanised mild steel channel. We managed to make a few with simple fly press tooling to sample the parts but once the volumes increased a dedicated CNC punch press tool was needed so that the cut and form could be formed accurately and quickly in the sheet metal before any bending operations took place.
Whether you have a sheet metal CNC punching project that needs our standard tools or a special customer made tool please give us a call and we will be happy to help you.
