We undertake small to medium volume production work using sheet upto 6mm thick and 2500mm wide. With the latest in CAD/CAM technology we are able nest both complex & assorted components onto as single sheet with great efficiency as well as high volumes of identical part. Examples of high volume work include brackets, electrical connectors, shims, engineering components and washers.
Punching operations that can be carried out include blanking, punching and nibbling as well as dimpling and shaving. Our punch is capable of up to 400 hits per minute which allows for a high through put even on the most densly nested sheet.
We use high quality tooling from Amada and Wilson and have specialist tool grinders that mean we can easily maintain the best cutting edge for every job. The Amada Arcade 210 CNC punching machine offers a Quality Of Tool feature which alerts the operator to tool wear and with a 19 turret station (3 with auto indexing) we can quickly change lead cutting tools. We also hold a large tool library which our highly experienced enginners can use to select the most suitable tools for the job.
Large sheet based components such as enclosures and panels can be readily punched to exacting tolerances through either direct programming of the Fanuc control system or pre-programmed operations in G-Code. Components can also be punched with holes and perforations upto 88mmØ.
Sheet metal brackets and other engineering components can be readily punched from well nested sheets in low to medium volume. Our experienced CAD Engineers can nest components to optimal effect, carefully adjusting the space between components as well as the sheet edge, based on years of experience which saves time and money. Engineering components can also be punched with holes and squares where required.
High volume blanking of components such as washers, spacers, shims and general punched parts can be undertaken quickly and effeciently. Using customer containers we can supply high volume parts by weight ready for production management systems such as Kanban or direct line side supply.
