CNC Punching for 34 years!
AMADA TURRETS and SALVAGNINI Top the list of Noble Industries CNC Punching
Noble Industries is the leader in low cost/high volume CNC metal punching, using CNC Amada Turret Presses and Salvagnini S4 punching equipment. CNC punching is a computer controlled process that can easily stamp out hundreds of geometric shapes into a piece of sheet metal in mere seconds. It involves a punch, a die, sheet metal and programming that tells the press which tools to use and where to punch parts. CNC punching is the most efficient way to produce precision fabricated metal products with many holes. We have been punching CNC parts since 1980.
The difference between stamping and CNC Punching is that stamping is designed for large production runs where 5,000 parts up to 1,000,000 or more parts are made in one run. CNC Punching is for short production runs. It can optimize costs for the lower runs. It is absolutely the best way to shear and punch parts without investing in high priced unique tooling.
The CNC sheet metal punching process starts when our engineers take a design that may be presented in a 2D format such as DXF or DWG files or a 3D file format. They analyze this information and create the flat sheet metal layout and assign the correct tooling to create the desired component. Our P.E.P. 2011 technology nesting software is used to establish the most efficient layout of components on a given size of sheet metal. Obviously, the more components that can be produced from a panel of sheet metal the cheaper each CNC punched component will become.
An example of one of our CNC Punching parts is a connection terminal plate. This small terminal connector plate is made out of 16 gauge 304 stainless steel sheet metal. We buy it in 48 X 120 Stainless Steel sheets. In the cnc punching, we punch the part and put in 2 dimples. We make 10,000 parts out of 3.33 sheets of material. The parts are then tumbled to remove any sharp edges. Once the quality inspection is complete, 10,000 parts are shipped to our customer in Canada.
CNC punching is lower cost solution than laser cutting and it offers additional benefits of putting dimples, louvers and knock outs while you are punching the part. Our P.E.P. nesting software helps maximize the material usage.
