Automated Sheet Metal Punching Technology

Our punching machine technology has two options, depending on your products and requirements: coil punching and sheet punching. The different punching techniques are monitored by either sensor or vision technology. In mutual consultation, we always choose the punching technology which will achieve the highest degree of efficiency in your production process.

Coil punching

Coil punching is the best solution when higher productivity is important. Side cutters in the WEMO machine increase flexibility, justify the production of smaller batches, obviating the need for coil changes and also increasing the availability of your machine. Coil punching guarantees higher productivity, flexibility and low costs. Standard or special tools are installed in the stationary or NC driven presses, either stationary or as a rotatable index multitool. In order to achieve maximum flexibility, we offer the option of using coil nesting per batch of one.

Sheet punching

Sheet punching is applied when flexibility plays an important part in the production process. Punching starts with the cut sheet and is carried out with the aid of standard thick turret tooling or special tools. The option of processing different sheet sizes alternately offers more flexibility than punching with coil material. Moreover, curvature in the coil has no influence on the punching tolerances.
