Turret punch presses can contain a wide variety of standard punching tools that vary by edge, hole shape, size, notch shape and edge. A typical turret punch can have around 60 tools in the turret but there are some that can hold 200. This allows for any shape to be cut right from the sheet metal. The tooling for these machines consist of a die, stripper and punch. The punch fits right into the turret on the machine. There are some machines that achieve up to 1200 hits (punches) per minute!
This machine is great for punching repetitive shapes but not as flexible as a laser when it comes to compound shapes. Turret punches are able to cut through stainless steel, aluminum, carbon steel, galvanized steel and much more.
When looking for a turret punch press, you must be aware that the upfront cost will be high, but the money and time you save in the future will be well worth it.
