CNC Turret Punching

A CNC (Computer Numerical Control) punch press is a type of machine tool used in the manufacturing industry to cut, shape, and form sheet metal and other materials. It's an automated system that uses computer programming to control the movement of a punch and die set to create holes, shapes, and patterns in the material.

Key features and components of a CNC punch press include:

Control System

The heart of the CNC punch press is its control system, which consists of a computer and software that interpret the part design and generate the necessary commands to control the machine's movements.

Punch and Die Set

The punch is a tool that moves vertically and applies force to the material, while the die is a stationary tool that provides the counterforce. By using different punch and die combinations, various hole shapes and sizes can be created in the material.


Modern CNC punch presses often have a rotating turret that holds multiple punch and die sets. This allows for quick tool changes, reducing downtime and increasing productivity.

Material Clamps

To hold the material securely in place during the punching process, clamps are used. These clamps can be repositioned as needed to accommodate different part sizes and shapes.

CAD/CAM Software

Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) software are used to design parts and generate CNC programs that guide the punch press. These programs specify the tool path, feed rates, and other parameters for cutting and forming operations.
