Punching is a process to cut or create holes in patterns using repeated punches, usually in sheet metals.
Punching makes holes in a piece of material by punching a tool into a die, with the workpiece in between. This creates a
hole in the workpiece. By doing this repeatedly, it is possible to punch holes in patterns. It is also possible to let the
holes overlap each other, making punching an efficient process to cut large pieces of sheet metal.
A modern punch press can hold several tools at the same time. The tools are mounted in the machine tool's turret. The machine tool can be programmed to use them in a sequence, which significantly reduces the machining time. Therefore punching is somtimes referred to as CNC turret punching.
For large volume production, punching can be highly automated. However, it is also possible and cost-effective to punch smaller volumes, especially since the tools are not custom-made for each project.
Post project to suppliers with Punching capabilities
This Qimtek member urgently seeks a supplier who is able to assist with the attached components. Interested parties are required to produce the attached mild steel slotted tubes - the client has suggested the slots be punched, but is open to alternative methods of manufacture. There is an immediate order to place, with ongoing batches to follow shortly.
Suppliers with CNC punching capacity are asked to provide a quotation for free-issue lamination sheets, which are required for use within a medical application. The client seeks a second-source supplier for these items, as well as the possible production of similar parts moving forward. They spend a massive £500,000 a year on bespoke fabricated components, meaning that there is plenty of scope for the chosen supplier to develop the relationship. Please note that the overall quality of these parts is paramount.
This company is working on a long-term project and is looking for quotes for punching/pressing of the attached flat components, along with the necessary tooling required. Indicative quotes are sought at this time for two similar components. The drawings currently available are basic; however, detailed technical drawings will be made available as soon as possible and quotes can be adjusted to suit once the drawings are ready if required. The buyer is looking at punching/pressing and casting options for this work and is open to considering other processes to ensure the highest quality is achieved. The batch sizes required for this enquiry are for indicative quotes, although at its peak, annual volumes are set to rise up to 3,000 off and 10,000 off respectively. This is a 15-year project, making it a fantastic opportunity to fill long-term capacity with a new client.
IMPORTANT: There is a non-disclosure agreement running with this enquiry. Please print this off, complete ALL sections, sign and date it and return ALL pages to email@example.com or fax 01256 394600. Once received, all drawings and documents will be released to your account.
