Turret Presses

Typically CNC-controlled with programmed automatic positioning of the sheet metal beneath the tool for fabrication, this type of punch press rotates a wide range of different tools located in its turrets to the punching position and uses a large number of strokes at high speeds to punch, form, bend and drill many holes, notches and other varying sizes and shapes, from simple to complex, producing a wide variety of parts without the cost of making specialized press tooling. This can be effective for rapid prototyping, small lot sizes, or higher volume production without tooling delays. Two synchronized and aligned corresponding turrets, above and below the bed, provide the matching punch and die set for each operation.
