CNC punching & Folding
With the latest and up to date machinery and tooling we have the ability to fabricate a wide range of products.
Our capability means we have the flexibility to manufacture batch orders as well as individual bespoke projects.
Our fully automated punch press and press brake gives our customers the quick turnaround they demand as well as consistent quality.
Sheet metal profiling
Punch profiling sheet metal is potentially a faster and cheaper method than laser cutting, depending on part complexity and batch size. Simpler profiles and larger volumes are ideally suited to punching. An additional benefit is that punching machines can generate simple formed features such as dimples, louvres, logo indentations and knock-outs, thus avoiding the need for additional operations.
Hillview Engineering's CNC punching machines are capable of punching materials in thicknesses up to 6mm and sheet sizes up to 3 metres x 1.5 metres. The materials punch profiled include stainless steel, mild steel, aluminium, brass, copper and plastics. Using computer-assisted part nesting allows maximum material utilisation. The punching head also allows simple forming and tapping (threading) operations to be carried out during the same cycle, therefore saving the need for setting up secondary operations
