Our punching service

What is punching?

Punching is a machining service that is used to create holes or indentations in aluminium profiles. Profiles are placed in a power press and moved along X and Y axes according to the data entered, positioning them under the machine’s punching ram, which then punches out a hole or indented form.

We can punch simple shapes such as circles and squares. We can also use bespoke tooling, and/or a combination of single hits and overlapping geometries, to create unique shapes or configurations.

What is punching used for?

Fast, repeatable and cheaper than drilling, punching is widely used across a diverse array of industries. Some typical applications include:

  • Events staging

  • Commercial vehicle accessories
  • Stairlifts

  • Marquees

  • Temporary roadways

  • Steps and stairnosing
