Punching Holes in Aluminum J Channel. Fast!
Punch Multiple Holes Fast
In mere seconds, our technology punches multiple holes in extruded parts—saving your company money. Unfortunately, some companies use drills or ironworkers to make holes in extrusions, but these tools can only create one hole at a time. This extends the time spent on each part considerably when multiple holes are necessary.
Simplify The Process
UniPunch tooling is easy for workers to master. Often with just one stroke of your press, the holes you need are complete. With other technologies, it’s more complicated. CNC machines require someone with programming knowledge. Ironworkers punch one hole at a time and require extra part gauging and hand feeding.
Avoid Drawbacks of Die Sets
Like UniPunch systems, die sets can punch multiple holes in extrusions at once, but they have their drawbacks.
Before your new die set arrives at your facility, a shop needs to custom make one for you. That process takes an average of six weeks and maybe more. The typical lead time for a UniPunch system is only one week.
Maintenance isn’t easy when it comes to die sets. For a die set to receive the care it requires like sharpening, it needs to come off the press and be disassembled, causing delays in production. Maintenance is easy with a UniPunch system. You can easily replace punches and dies on the shop floor or in the press.
If your part can be made with UniPunch tooling, you can save thousands in upfront costs over die sets.
What range of diameters can a UniPunch system punch?
Anywhere from .0937″ to 3.000″
