Punching Aluminum Sheet Metal at Valley Precision
On 14 January, 2016 By Dan Drumheller
Here is a video showing some detailed precision punching of .090″ thick aluminum on our Strippit 1250H Hydraulic Punch Press. This punch press has 36 punch holding stations and also has three rotating “indexing” stations that allow a tool to be rotated during the program which allows for more versatility and punching options. We get all of our punch tooling from Wilson Tool, and keep it in organized drawers for quick setups and higher probability of 100% correct first piece inspection results. Each part is inspected at the beginning of the production run, 100%, and then is subsequently checked over and over at the beginning of every new operation the part requires. We hope you enjoy the video!
