How Does UniPunch Trim and Part Tooling Work?

Trim and part tooling is used to cut a flat strip of material into two pieces and round the end of each part at the same time. Trim and part tooling is supplied with 2 heels to prevent side loading when punching.  Dies can be supplied with a gauging system to help guide the part thru the unit.

In addition to cut-off applications, UniPunch also provides tooling to trim, part and punch within the same c-frame unit.  Trim and part tooling is commonly used for cut-off applications where a rounded end of the part is required.  To request a quote for tooling designed to your specifications, please provide a drawing of the part.


Another option with more versatility is to use one unit for trimming and one unit for punching. In the video below, customer Ebbco describes how he chose this option so that he can punch holes for future projects.
