If you are looking for a sheet metal working company to CNC punch out your sheet metal components then V and F Sheet Metal based in Fareham, Hampshire, UK are just what you need. As well as a Trumpf 3030 3KW fibre laser machine we have Trumpf 200 and Trumpf 3000 CNC punch presses. These punch presses are very flexible machines being able to punch out components from 0.3mm to 5mm thick material in a wide range of metal materials. From 0.3mm tin plated steel and 0.4mm thick specialised aluminium lighting reflector materials, standard aluminium, mild steel, stainless steel alloys through to 5 bar tread plate, pre-painted steel and pre-anodised aluminium. All stainless steel and aluminium alloys can be supplied with plastic coatings on their top and bottom faces to prevent damage in production and during your assembly stages.
The machine shown here is our Trumpf 3000 CNC punch press punching out pre-painted mild steel sheet metal. The circular discs are gear trays for industrial light fittings and are very competitively priced compared to manufacturing from mild steel and powder coating white. The final punch on this part would be to sever the component from the parent material and collect it in a tray underneath the machine from a programmable chute in the machine bed.
The Trumpf machines having a single head which can rotate through 360 degrees make them very flexible when it comes to complex sheet metal designs and small batch work. This flexibility can be advantageous when it comes to your designs with the ability to punch slots at any angle, cut-outs in complex shapes with our standard FREE CNC punch tooling.
These CNC punch presses are fully supported in all manufacturing features by our Radan sheet metal CAD/CAM software as well as offering 3D modelling for accurate bank size calculations it allows us to swap jobs from our laser to our CNC punch presses when production work loads necessitate.
