FCU Series Overview

Feed Clearance Units with Standard 8 3/8″ Shut Height and 3 1/2″ Die Height

“FCU” series punching units feature extra wide feed openings that allow you to “front feed” parts such as channels, angles and extrusions. Available “FCU” series holder widths are: 1 ¼”, 1 ½” and 2 ¼”. Holder width is important because it defines the minimum hole to hole distance. The “FCU” series is widely used in industry to punch mild steel up to 1/8″ thickness. Depending on your material thickness, punch diameters are available from .0937” (2.38mm) to .8750” (22.22mm). (For thicker material punching applications, see the “AJ” series.)

In addition to a wide range of standard round and shaped punches and dies, UniPunch provides punch and die pairs in shapes custom made to your specifications. UniPunch units are rugged holders that allow you to punch burr-free holes with minimal maintenance. Various mounting methods are available including dedicated templates for fast changeover at the press.
