Metal Punching Service

Metal punching or sheet metal punching in which a metal is processed to get embossed with different hole sizes and shapes. Sheet metal punching production can be executed in a hand-operated punch press, however, the CNC or computer numerical controlled punching instrument is what machinists use nowadays.

Punched holes may come in different shapes like circles, squares, etc. Many also consider this process as a substitute or replacement for laser cutting as they can manufacture rapidly and punch various forms and cutouts accurately.

If you have a few questions about metal punching services, or if you are in the market trying to work with the best, here is a quick and easy FAQ guide that will lead you to the answers you’re looking for!

What is a Metal Punching Service?

figure 1 what is a metal punching service
Think about punching paper – it is the same idea, just a different set of machines and equipment. Metal punching service is a type of service in which the metal workpiece or material is “punched” or “shaped” according to the requests or needs of a client.

It’s literally just like punching paper, except that instead of paper, metal is the material being punched or cut.

How is the Metal Punching Service Done?

figure 2 – how the metal punching process is done

Metal punching is done differently by various manufacturers. Some manufacturers do a certain step first, while some go straight to the supposed first step. To help you in identifying it further, though, the general way of how metal punching is done would be by the following:

  1. The sketch, draft, or design is finalized and completed by the client.
  2. Then, it will be sent to the manufacturer for them to load it onto the software.
  3. The software reads the sketch or the program. An expert will check if it is attainable and applicable.
  4. After that, the machine undergoes a dry run to see if it will follow the program precisely and accurately.
  5. Once done, the punch tooling is positioned properly along with the workpiece.
  6. Then, the CAD file will be run and the CNC metal puncher will move in both the X and Y directions.

NOTE: This is just a general process of how it’s done. Not all manufacturers follow it like this.

Can All Metals Be Punched?

Before, manufacturers only have a few selected types of steels and metals they punch due to the lack of material and resources. However, in today’s time, engineers and manufacturers reveal that they’re able to punch and machine all types and kinds of steel and metal.

Whether it’s stainless steel, aluminum steel, carbon steel, mild steel – literally everything, it can be machined and punched properly.

Is Metal Punching and Metal Stamping the Same?


Yes and no – let me explain.

Metal punching and metal stamping are two (2) machining processes done to workpieces. Their goal is the same – and that is to ensure that the workpiece will be reformed, reshaped, and reworked, so, how are they the same?

Well, metal punching is done if the manufacturer wants a specific size or shape punched out of the metal. Typically, this punched area will just be a small part.

On the contrary, metal stamping is done to an entire piece. For instance, if you have a sheet metal and you need a large round-shaped metal, a metal stamp will be used in order to produce the shape needed.

Think of it like this, for small punched parts and components, metal punching is done. If you need the larger area, you’ll need to do metal stamping instead.

Which Industries Make Use of Metal Punching Services?

What Are the Advantages of Metal Punching?

Metal punching – or even metal stamping has its own breed of benefits and advantages. These include, but are not limited to:

Accuracy and Precision

In machining, precision is the number one priority of a manufacturer. The more precise a workpiece is the better and the higher the value will be. Metal punching usually requires maximum accuracy even in the smallest of products and components.

Speed and Urgency

Another advantageous factor metal punching has is that it is fast and urgent. The combination of speed + accuracy is a lethal combination especially for businesses that are looking for short and long-term success.

Flexibility and Adaptability

If you were surprised that metal punching can be done to all types of metals, then you need to know about this.
