Turret punching refers to the process of punching holes in metal through specialised tooling pressed down onto the workpiece; when enacted on a CNC (computer numerical controlled) machine, the workpiece is automatically aligned with the cutting tools which can be lowered to cut. CNC turret punches are best for mass production, maintaining speed and accuracy through an automated process.
Turret punching is an efficient method of punching holes in metal on mass. Multiple tooling can be contained within a punch so as to produce numerous sizes or shapes of holes without the need to change tooling.
A turret punch is applicable for high volume production, on simple profiles, where repetitive holes in the workpiece are needed.
A turret punch may be CNC or manually controlled; CNC turret punches are best for mass production, whilst manual punches are more efficient where workpieces or tooling is often changed. Turret punches can be further categorised by a hydraulic, mechanic, or servo motor control. Out of the three, hydraulic turret punches are the most common.
