The Benefits of CNC Sheet Metal Punching
Our design engineers will work with you to create the design of your product for manufacturing. They will then offer you the most cost-effective way to manufacture the item using our in-house sheet metal manufacturing tools and services.
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 Turret Punch’s automatic online tool changer, which has the capacity to hold up to 220 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 JC Metalworks’ ‘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.
