Punching with a punch press is an extremely cost-effective way to produce billets, and in the thickness range of 0.5-3 mm, it is often the most cost-effective method as well. In a punch press, desired pieces are pierced from sheet by mechanical punching with selected tools. In addition to piercing, a sheet metal centre can thread, form, cup, stiffen, and seving pieces in the same process.
Stremet specializes in piercing, and we can confidently lay claim to possessing excellent piercing capabilities. Years of experience bring confidence, and our extensive range of tools as well as our large material inventory allow us to start work immediately after order processing.
We don’t have a typical punching job. We work for dozens of different industries, producing very diverse pieces for each. Throughout our history, we’ve processed hundreds of thousands of different geometries. Typically, batch sizes range from tens to thousands. The size of a single piece varies widely, from millimetres to meters, depending on customer needs. There’s a suitable machine for every size, with which production is cost-effective.
Our capacity includes many punch presses – suitable for every job
We have a total of nine punch presses. We have six traditional manual Finn Power punch presses, which are suitable for small batch production of a few sheets. Additionally, we have punch presses with automation for larger batches. We have technology that combines a punch press with an angle cutter, which we use for creating rectangular pieces and large batches. Our machine lineup includes the Amada EMZ 3610 NT punch press equipped with a picking robot and the Prima Power SBe angle cutter equipped with a stacking system for cut pieces.
In addition to punch presses, our capacity includes the Prima Power Combi Genius combination machine that utilized the latest technology and combines laser cutting and piercing. The combination machine can process sheets up to 4300 mm in length and is optimal for producing items such as 2100 mm long door frames and door panels. The combination machine is equipped with loading, picking, and stacking robots. With the combination machine, we can combine piercing, forming, threading, and laser-cut shapes into a single piece, making it extremely flexible for any part. With the combination machine, we cut steel, stainless steel, and aluminium from 0.5 mm to 8 mm thickness.
Increased Productivity through Automation
Automation enables unmanned production even during nighttime, allowing us to offer large quantities with short delivery times. All machines are programmed using the same programming software. The choice of method is made by our experienced and skilled nesting programmers.
The punch presses are constantly updated, and different types of equipment are acquired for production based on capacity needs and customer requirements. We already possess expertise, capacity, and cost-efficiency. This way, we serve customer needs comprehensively.
