5 Advantages Of A CNC Turret Punching Machine
Metal can be processed in a variety of ways, such as woven wire mesh, welded wire mesh, perforated metal and more. In terms of perforated metal, punching machines are a prominent way of manufacturing them. It can be done manually or can be automated, such as a CNC turret punching machine. It is a device which uses computer programming to punch holes into a metal sheet. In this blog, 5 major benefits of using this machine will be addressed.
5 Merits Of A CNC Punching Machine
Improvement In Production Efficiency
Since it is a highly automated process, a CNC turret punching machine can improve production efficiency by more than 5 or 10 times in comparison to conventional machine tools.
High Level Of Accuracy
A major benefit of a CNC-operated punching machine is its high accuracy. The pattern to be punched has to be uploaded to the computed system with the right dimensions, and the machine will produce the patterns with precision. Hence, it is far superior to conventional punching tools in this regard.
Easy To Manufacture Complex Patterns/Shapes
Complex patterns and shapes require specialized dies in conventional punching machines, which is impractical for small batches. However, a CNC punching machine can recreate the complex patterns with accuracy by making small adjustments in the orientation of the punch and the die.
Equipped with numerous tools in a single machine, it is highly versatile. Hence, one machine can produce more throughput than several conventional punching machines.
Economical In The Long Run
Although the initial cost of setting up the CNC machine is quite high, the punching machine makes up for it in the long run with improved production efficiency, speed, accuracy and versatility.
