What is CNC Punching?

CNC Punching involves the communication of part data and methods of shaping and cutting to punching machines in order to efficiently and economically produce parts. CNC punching usually serves as an alternative to metal stamping where part volumes are lower and where greater part variety is required, as CNC punching does not require more costly hard tooling.

What are Presses and Machines?

Turret presses (and other styles of CNC punching machines) cut and punch holes and other shapes in sheet metal, and also perform forming and other fabrication operations.
