Sheet Metal Machinery



We work with several machines to manufacture sheet metal to fulfil our client’s orders.

  • Turret Punch
  •  Guillotine
  • Plasma Cutter
  • Brake Press

The turret punch is capable of doing … all their punches are patterned into the strip of steel so we draw the product on AutoCAD, and we brought in a flat pattern and then from there we program it into the turret punch machine and put the sheet of steel in and bang, bang, bang it. Ir will put on different circles and squares and whatever other shapes it needs to cut out the two-dimensional pattern, which we will then take, fold up and finish off into the final product.
It’s capable of doing 6 mm mild steel but we don’t do a lot above 3 mm just because we don’t have the need for it. They’re capable of doing 6 mm. It’s good machine if you’re basically doing multiples of the same thing. So if you’re going to make 100 brackets exactly the same, then you can just punch them all out and you know all holes are going to be the same and not relying on people drilling holes accurately. Everything’s exactly the same.

Some companies have laser cutters to do the same thing but a laser cutter is a lot more expensive and we don’t need it. The turret punch does exactly what we need.

So once we’ve punched out the blank, we then take it to either of the folding machines so the pan brake or brake press..

And the brake press is fully programmable so it will have a program in there if it’s a repeat job. We program it – it could be for a tray or a bracket or an enclosure panel, and then we just program it in, find the program number if you’re going back to it. That way, you just feed them one after another and it’ll just keep folding it exactly the same.
