By staying with the one manufacturer, Wesgar simplified operator training so all of its operators could run all of the turret punch presses
Before purchasing the Shear Genius, Aero-Heat's fabrication department made parts on older mechanical turret punch presses
by either nibbling out of a precut blank or blanks were sized in-house using a 12 ft shear and then punched.
A lengthy justification process, which involved researching most current models of hydraulic CNC turret punch presses
, led CR Metal Products to purchase four 1500 H/30 punch presses
manufactured by Strippit/LVD, Akron, NY.
A team of manufacturing and engineering personnel was involved in specifying the purchase of two Strippit/LVD 1000 M/30 30-ton mechanical punch presses
for additional capacity.
By phasing in Ultra to just one of its Amada 357 Pegas at a cost of $18,000, the company was able to continue using most of its existing tool components in its other two punch presses
, albeit at slower speeds than the newly tooled machine.
The sale is part of Strippit's strategic plan to focus on its core business of manufacturing CNC turret punch presses
, laser cutting systems, metalforming products, and machine tooling for the machine tool industry.
Today, Precision Quincy's manufacturing facility encompasses 200,000 sq ft and houses the latest in metalforming machinery, including two CNC turret punch presses
and state-of-the-art shearing and bending equipment.
Computer numerical control (CNC) technology, first introduced to the sheet metal fabrication industry in the 1980s, has made NC punch presses
basic machine tools of sheet metal fabricating.
Even though turret punch presses
can now run up to 1100 hits per
No one doubts the ability of turret punch presses
to deliver high productivity in a widening array of forming applications.
Building production scheduling for literally thousands of different jobs around the versatility and flexibility of CNC hydraulic turret punch presses
makes a lot of sense these days for job shops.
US Amada's introduction of the Vipros family of CNC controlled hydraulic turret punch presses
proved to be the rich environment for cultivating two new ancillary products at its tooling systems division, Amada Engineering and Service Inc (AESI), La Mirada, CA.
