Sheet metal machining - Punching
Mevar also deals with metal punching to make holes and incisions in sheet metal. Punching is a mechanical process that occurs by pressing onto the sheet metal a cutting force sufficient to separate the material along the border of the cutting unit of the mould.
Both for holes and incisions, we use the numerically controlled multi-head automatic puncher, which can process a large workload and which can allow high flexibility for machine setup, thanks to the ability to substitute the previously set up punches through simple commands by the computerized command system.
Automatic punchers are used to cut thin sheet metal.
