CNC Metal Punching



CNC metal punching is often confused with metal stamping, due to the wording of stamping and punching having very similar meaning. The first main difference is the machinery required to achieve punching or stamping.

The sheet CNC metal punching processes are formed utilising CNC machinery that utilise punch presses and dies. The punch passes through the sheet metal while the dies located on the other side of the metal piece operate as a support and help the punches sustain more force. Ensuring that the metal does not break under pressure.

In comparison metal stamping is a set of operations to obtain specific shapes and this includes sheet metal punching. Stamping is a consequence of other metal processes in the first instance, such as blanking, sheet metal deep drawing and bending. It’s the end process for giving metal components a specific shape to the overall piece.
