Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) punching plays a significant role in sheet metal manufacturing, delivering high accuracy, speed and competitively priced metal components and parts.
Machines can punch many shapes, from simple circles or rectangles to overlapping geometrical 3D designs that can allow for increased flexibility in sheet metal components.
Our CNC controlled Punch and Laser combination machines are capable of even more complex geometry without the need for extra tool changes or increased set up costs.
CAD and RADAN software is network linked to the cutting machines which can also assist with working out the most efficient layout and processing of the sheet metal into the required components. This ensures that 'nests' of parts are utilised to minimise expensive material wastage.
The sheet metal CNC punching department at KMF Precision Sheet Metal includes a very broad and impressive range of metal punching machines. A complete plant list can be viewed here.
Stopa storage towers are also used to feed our CNC punching machines. Each tower is capable of storing 90 tonnes of raw sheet metal, ready to be processed by the Flexible Manufacturing Cell system that gives us a 60% increase in efficiency over conventional sheet metal CNC punching machine systems.
CNC punching machines at KMF can handle an extremely broad range of metals, including CR4 (mild steel), zintec, galvanised steel, aluminium, stainless steel, copper, brass and pre-coated steel (Plastisol).
A growing number of OEMs now include outsourcing in their growth strategies in order to focus on core business activities. See more about how KMF Group can become your perfect outsourcing partner.
