What is a CNC turret punch press?
A turret press, or CNC (computer numerically controlled) punch press, is a type of metal press used to punch holes into sheet metal. A CNC turret punch can have up to 60 various punch tools to choose from. Using a controller, you can rotate the turret to move the necessary punchily tool into position. Punching tools can be multiple sizes or shapes, such as squares or circles. You can even combine various circles or squares to punch a more complex form. A turret press is beneficial in situations where you are creating many identical shapes in a row.
How does a turret punch machine work?
A turret punch machine forces a tool called a punch through sheet metal to create a hole. The punch often passes through the sheet metal into a die. A scrap slug from the hole is dropped into the die, which can then be discarded, reused or recycled. A turret punch machine is computer operated, so it is extremely precise. By inputting what you want into the computer, the device will position the sheet metal under the punch in the exact spot that you want. They also often use hydraulic and pneumatic power to press the punch through the metal.
What does a turret operator do?
A turret operator controls the turret punch press machine and punches holes in metal sheets, strips or bars. A turret operator will ensure that workpieces are aligned correctly on the punch and that the turret press is operating as expected. Other duties of a turret operator include following directions for machine settings for each cut, performing quality checks and conducting machine maintenance. A turret operator will also work the CNC program and may compute punch charts from blueprints. It is a turret operator’s responsibility to oversee the product’s assembly and ensure that it meets or exceeds client expectations.
What is a punching machine called?
A punching machine is used to punch holes into metal. They can be small and manually operated or larger and computerised. Smaller punching machines are often referred to as manual punching machines or punch presses. These may be found in home workspaces and are only effective on thin and smaller sheet metal. In industrial settings, computerised punching machines are more common. These are often referred to as turret punch presses or CNC punch presses. These are used on larger and thicker sheets of metal and are used in conjunction with computer programs.
