PUNCHING PROCESS WITH STEEL PUNCH
The punching is the process of giving a sign, or a form, on a surface by pressure or percussion with a tool with steel punch (from the Latin “punctio”, prick).
For the punching process is used an automatic machines (punch press) to cut and pierce the sheet metal (aluminum or steel) of up to 25-30mm thick to create precision metal parts. With numerical control (CNC) punch presses can be made cutting and shaping metal parts very complex, quickly and safely. Until publication of oxyfuel systems, in the early eighties, punch presses were the only practical way to cut and process sheets with thicker more than 2.3 mm.
The metal punching process conducted at GMP involves a stamping die; this is a precision tool that cuts sheet metal and forms desired shapes and profiles. Our die forming and cutting selection is made of tool steel, this is special hardened steel. We also possess dies that contain forming and cutting sections made from other hard and wear resistant materials.
Since stamping is a cold-forming process, we do not use heat in our metal punching process. We have a variety of metal punching units and this enables us to manufacture small and large materials. We develop large materials, for example; automobile parts.
Through our metal punching process, we can produce holes of different shapes and sizes. This enables us to produce different parts for various applications and to meet the unique needs of our clients. We only hire the most experienced metal punching process personnel to maintain our high-quality standards.
