With a hit rate of up to 1,200 strokes per minute the turret punch is extremely fast and reliable. Once programmed it can repeat the same punch process many times with no loss of quality or accuracy. The machine can add countersinks, embossments, extrusions, and louvers.
Job Size: 1000mm x 2000mm
MIG & TIG Welding
A good weld is vital for integrity of the product. Designing the correct weld joint is important for cost, strength and visual appearance. Selecting a correct joint and welding process for the job, while considering accessibility is critical when designing a welded product.
I am able to offer MIG & TIG welding. Happy to provide advice on the best approach during your design stages.
3D Design & Development
Design and development assistance is available for different stages of your project. If, however, all you have is a sketch, I offer 3D service to get you ready for production.
Techniques, Materials & Finishes
I use my machines in a non-conventional way and push them to their limits to achieve beautiful cuts and sharp folds.
A precision fold offers a sharp edge where the inside radius is 0mm. An average fold achieves inside radius of 4mm, which gives you a rounded fold.
Aluminium, stainless and mild steel are materials I predominantly work with. For more decorative and high end projects, brass, copper and bronze are available.
I am happy to advise for additional properties such as corrosive resistance, hardness and weight to strength ratio.
I can offer a range of finishes such as powder coating, spray painting, chrome nickel and zink plating and anodizing.
I work with hand picked suppliers and collaborators to produce finishes to your specification.
