What is metal stamping and fabrication?
Stamping includes a variety of sheet-metal forming manufacturing processes, such as punching using a machine press or stamping press blanking, embossing, bending, flanging and coining. This could be a single stage operation where every stroke of the press produces the desired form on the sheet metal part, or could occur through a series of stages.
CNC turret presses create shapes in material by successively punching a series of basic shapes like circles and rectangles. The shapes are selected from a rotating turret controlled by the CNC.
CNC turret presses are a cost effective method for cutting sheet metal in moderate- to long-runs. Edges are usually very good due to the shearing action. CNC turret punching can produce 2D shapes and cutouts. Examples of where CNC turret presses are used: custom enclosures, custom metal brackets, custom robot parts, custom heat sinks, custom washers, custom wrenches, custom front panels, custom sheet metal boxes, custom motorcycle parts, custom auto parts, mechanisms and chassis.
CNC turret punching is commonly applied to aluminum, stainless steel, steel and brass.
