What is Metal Punching

Sheet Metal punching is a common process used to create holes in sheet metal. This process works by forcing a specialised tool, called a punch, through the sheet metal using the punch press. This forceful press action shears the metal, creating a clean hole of the same size and shape as the punch itself. The leftover material, “slug,” falls through the punch and into a die placed below the sheet metal.

Power of Sheet Metal Punching

With the ability to punch multiple holes simultaneously and maintain tight tolerances, metal punching is a cost-effective and reliable method for producing punched components in various industries. This sheet metal fabrication preferred for:

Punching delivers clean, precise holes with consistent shapes and sizes. It could minimize the need for additional processing of the metal sheets.

Metal punching machines can be integrated with computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) systems, enabling precise programming and automation of punching operations.

With proper setup and maintenance, metal punching delivers consistent results, ensuring uniformity across multiple parts or batches.

Punching is often the cheapest method for creating holes in sheet materials in medium to high production volumes. When a specially shaped punch is used to create multiple usable parts from a sheet of material the process is known as blanking.
