One of the more common processes in metal fabrication is sheet metal punching. But those who don’t work in the fabrication industry may not know much about sheet metal punching at all. In this article, we are going to share some of the benefits of sheet metal punching.
What is Sheet Metal Punching?
In its most basic form, punching is a process in which tools and dies are used to punch holes in sheet metal. The punch goes through the metal while dies (on the opposite side of the metal) ensure a proper and accurate punch. These can be configured to meet very specific sheet metal designs and shapes.
Sheet metal punching has become one of the go-to techniques used in the fabrication industry due to its versatility. The punching technique can be used on nearly any type of metal from aluminum, to iron, to stainless steel, and beyond. It’s also quite easy for a fabricator to combine dies they already have to fit a specific mould. This allows the fabricator to meet the specific needs of the project at hand without breaking the bank and charging the customer more money than absolutely necessary for the project.
