CNC Turret Punching
Turret Punching (sometimes known as Turret Pressing) is the process used to punch holes of various sizes, as well as straight edges and other shapes, into a sheet metal product and is an integral part of the sheet metal fabrication process. At Metlink we operate the very latest and most advanced robotic turret technology which is fast, efficient, highly precise and is capable of running a “lights-out” robotic production cell, or third shift – 24 hours a day.
We understand the changing needs of industry and have adapted our technological capabilities to accommodate the most demanding designs and sheet metal manufacturing solutions.
Our investment in fully automated machinery benefits customers and Metlink alike. Robotic technology has expanded our production capabilities, while eliminating human error, reducing manual handling time and therefore production delays to achieve higher levels of consistency.
By optimising resource and production, our clients can share the reduced costs, faster turnaround times and achieve higher levels of accuracy and consistency on the quality of finished product as well as, more advanced levels of safety for our operatives.
We currently operate the following turret punching machines:
- Strippit 1250S CNC turret punch
- LVD Strippit VX-1525 Picksort
Our turret punching machinery with its advanced technology will automatically load, pick and sort in all sheet metal material types up to 3000mm by 1500mm in size. Each machine can be programmed during the cutting design phase to run multiple jobs simultaneously – reducing material waste, labour cost and production time.
Parts and components can be punched from Mild steel, Stainless Steel and Aluminium.
Our team of skilled metal fabricators can oversee the production by coordinating punching tools of various designs and shapes to create virtually any profile, repeatedly and to the highest levels of accuracy.
Once complete, components will then be robotically stacked in preparation for further work at our facility such as bending, welding, inserting, powder coating or anodizing, as required.
