Benefits Of CNC Punching
We feature AMADA CNC punching machines in mechanical with high-speed punching on an immediate production basis. Mechanical sheet metal punching machines is able to use special forming tools such as louvers, countersinks, and extrusions to be punched within the program reducing labor intensive secondary operations. BAICHAO’S sheet metal punching machines are all equipped with fully rotational punching heads, which permits most tooling to be rotated to any punching angle. This technology provides you with a wide range of hole and forming possibilities with minimal lead time and usually no tooling cost.
When cutting sheet metal, there are two options: laser cutting and cnc sheet metal punching. Whilst cutting by laser offers a precise and often highly specific sheet metal shape, cnc punching, especially when punching steel, can be a more cost-effective and inexpensive option when cutting more commonly-shaped products.
The set up for cnc punching is more extensive than lasering. However, due to our Amada Punching online tool changer, which has the capacity to hold up to 56 tools, the time needed for this stage is reduced. As a result, this cuts the costs for clients.
As part of our metal punching services, the BAICHAO ‘fast access’ metal storage system allows for an even quicker manufacturing time for punching sheet metal. As a result, even small batch CNC metal punching production can be cost-effective for clients.
BAICHAO runs two AMADA CNC punching machine. The latest machine, purchased in 2013 , is the latest PEGA 345 model which has several upgrades that increase its productivity and flexibility, such as a faster C-axis, an active die system and individually retractable clamps.
Computer numerically controlled (CNC) punching is a sheet metal manufacturing process that is carried out by CNC punch presses. The CNC punching machine is basically programmed to move a sheet of metal in an x and y direction so as to accurately position the sheet under the machine’s punching ram ready to punch a hole or form.
The choice of hole punched can be as simple as a circle or rectangle right through to special shapes to suit a specific cut out design. By using a combination of single hits and overlapping geometries, complex sheet metal component shapes can be produced.
Some modern machines may have the ability to tap threads, fold small tabs, punch sheared edges without any tool witness marks making the machine very productive within the component cycle time. The instruction to drive the machine to create the desired component geometry is know as the CNC program.
We can offer you a wide variety of CNC punching services to fulfil all your design and manufacturing needs.
With high accuracy and speed, our machines can punch anything from simple circles to geometrical 3D designs.
Our rapid turn-around rate guarantees you high productivity, ensuring all deadlines are met and customer expectations are exceeded.
In addition to CNC punching, we also offer a range of alternative profiling services including laser cutting, waterjet cutting and plasma cutting. With our state-of-the-art cutting machines working on a 24 hour basis, we are able to offer high speed processing on parts without compromising quality.
