For this family-run sheet metal fabricator, moving to Ex-Series servo-electric punch presses solved its power consumption problems and improved productivity at a stroke.
Before investing in that next machine, take a moment to review some of these lean manufacturing aspects of the latest turret press technology to make sure you are getting the best value and strongest competitive advantage for your money.
Punch machines now do much more than simply punch holes. Today it’s all about completing multiple processes on the same machine, such as making up to one inch high flanges, tapping holes, forming, extruding, ribbing, offsetting, removing burrs from parts and more.
Do you need to become more competitive? Here's how to carefully assess the jobs you are quoting with your current press processes and discover how hydraulic press technology will improve your productivity and your bottom line as you compete for smaller lots and varied applications.
