CNC Turret Punching service creates multiple shaped holes in sheet metal or strip metal material by successively punching a series of basic shapes. The basic shapes can be circles, squares, rectangles. The punches are selected from a rail under CNC control. The turret punch has punching, tapping, and wheel forming capabilities. All operations are scheduled electronically and prioritized. CNC turret punching service has enabled us to increase our product line to include perforated assemblies and high volume sheet metal fabrications. Turret punching is a cost effective method for cutting sheet metal in prototype, low volume or in production runs. Watson also employs cellular manufacturing techniques. The punching equipment is set up as an individual cell; Material is loaded through an automated system unique to that individual CNC punch, processed (punched) and unloaded back on to a pallet and transferred via forklift to the next operation. The automation utilized in this cell make lights out operation possible which in turn helps reduce cost and maximize use of capacity. Another benefit of using the turret punching process is that edges are typically very good as a result of the shearing action of the turret. Features of the Turret Punch: Sheet Master: Automated loading and unloading Grip Master: Removal of sheet skeletons Sort Master pallet: Part pick & sort blanks Sheet capacity of 3048mm by 1524mm Technical capabilities: Material thickness: 1mm up to 6mm Accuracy: Punching accuracy of 0.02mm Materials: CR4 (Mild steel) / Zintec / Galvanized steel / Aluminum / Stainless steel / Copper / Brass / Pre-coated steel (Plastisol) Features: Embossing / Ribbing / Part No. Stamping / Forming / Countersinks / Thread forming Punching acceleration rate up to 1200 hits / min.
