Automated Punching


MultiTool - A Punching Evolution


The MultiTool is particularly strong when it comes to processing sheet metal parts with a variety of small punching operations and large lot sizes. It integrates up to ten different punches and dies in one tool and therefore, ensures short setup and tool change times. Typical applications are varying small holes such as circles of different diameters, squares or rectangles, as well as different embossed figures, such as letters or the numbers from 0 to 9. In addition to standard geometries, numerous special geometries are also possible.


How Punching Machines Work

Automated punching machines (from TRUMPF) enable you to process a diverse range of parts with flexibility. In addition to punching, the machines provide the option to form sheet metal parts or to integrate a thread – all on one machine. The punching head can turn the tool to any angular position. This minimizes setup times and increases your productivity. Innovative developments such as the active and descending die guarantee the best part quality. Intelligent automation options relieve the operator and increase throughput.
