14 Jul What Are CNC Punching Machines Used For?
If you have not heard of CNC punching machines, you may be wondering what they are used for. These machines are used to produce metal components from flat sheet material. They can punch, fold, and tap threads, among other capabilities. These machines are very productive within component cycle times. They use computer-aided design software, or CNC programmes, to create the desired component geometry. Here are a few examples of applications.
Turret Punching Machines: Turret-style CNC punching machines consist of a double drum and a lower turret. The upper turret houses punching tools, such as awls, piers, and guides. The lower turret houses a matrix, which is controlled by a programme. CNC punching machines can also perform complex sheet metal stamping.

CNC punching machines use advanced technologies to create precision parts. The automated design saves time and money and ensures operator safety. Moreover, these machines can also be used for complex machining operations, resulting in less waste and more consistent results. They can produce parts in a short time with little or no waste, and can repeat the same process repeatedly with less effort. Some models have internal quality detectors that prevent incorrect punching.
Tolerance values vary according to the thickness of the material. The tolerance range is fifteen to twenty-five percent of the material thickness. Aluminium has a tolerance of 15%, whereas steel and stainless steel require a tolerance of 25%. The tolerance ranges vary from machine to machine, but in general, they are all very high-quality.
Clamping mechanism: The clamp cylinder can be controlled by a two-position three-way solenoid valve. It must be shut off when it is not in operation. If the clamp is empty, it will cause damage to the tooth plate. If the jaws are open, it can be opened by extending the cylinder rod. If the cylinder rod reaches the critical operating temperature, the clamping mechanism will automatically retract and the jaws will open.
This series of machinery enables the movement of sheet metal under a punching ram. CNC punching machines are adjustable in two, three, or all three axes, and the range of materials they can punch is endless. They are ideal for a range of thickness from 0.5mm to 6mm. The CNC punching machine series uses proven bridge frames to minimise costs and increase productivity.
