Metal Punching

Metal Punching - Cutting Sheet Metal


From our Leicestershire based precision engineering facility, we are one of the UK’s leading custom manufacturers and suppliers of bespoke sheet metal punching services.

Sheet Metal Punching is a key part of our Metal Cutting Service

Custom metal punching is a key component in the precision metal manufacturing process here at JC Metalworks, perfectly complementing our design and engineering, laser cutting, forming, welding and fabrication, metal finishing and product assembly services.

As part of the sheet metal cutting stage in metal manufacturing, punching is where a piece of sheet metal is cut into a specified flat shape ready for further precision manufacturing processes.

Whether it be aluminium, copper, brass or steel sheet metal, we offer metal punching for components or finished products that are an accurate and cost effective solution for a wide variety of applications.

Our commitment to further inward investment and having our manufacturing facilities on-site in the UK ensures our place as leaders in the UK metal cutting and fabrication industry.

Typical examples of products created using our sheet metal punches and processes include the manufacture of point of sale units and retail fixtures, HVAC systems and electrical enclosures, along with lighting systems.

Having working in the metal manufacturing industry for over 30 years there isn’t much that we haven’t seen or done so do get in touch to discuss your metal cutting requirements.

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 laser cutting offers a precise and often highly specific sheet metal shape, cnc punching can be a more cost-effective and inexpensive option when cutting more commonly-shaped products.

The setup for cnc punching is more extensive than laser cutting. 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, and cuts the costs for clients as a result.

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 production can be cost-effective for clients.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at our Loughborough, Leicestershire metal works and headquarters to find out how we can use our metal cutting expertise to create your flat, shaped, metal product or component today by using our contact form or by calling us on 01509 233280.
