Turret Punch Press
Used Punching Machines, CNC Turret Punch Presses and Punching Cells
CNC Turret punch presses and punching machines are capable of blanking, cutting, punching holes and forming sheet metal all in one machine. Plus, they are generally faster than lasers for hole intensive parts and repetitive operations. The most versatile punching machines are capable of storing multiple tool and die sets and switching between those sets automatically to reduce down time. The most common turret punch designs feature turrets with 30-60 tool and die sets, allowing for many runs in between time consuming tool changes. Manufactures such as Amada, LVD Strippit, Prima Power and Murata are popular brands of turret punch press. Another tool changer design is a fully indexable (rotating) punching head with tool sets stored on a rail or tool changer. Trumpf’s Trupunch machines are popular models using this design. All the designs are more flexible and excel at shorter runs than tool and die stamping operations. Punching technology has advanced from simple mechanical punching machines to hydraulic and servo designs with higher speeds and programmable stroke adjustments.
