Angle & Bar Punching
Angle and bar punching are simple, flexible processes to punch holes in metal blanks. The process is similar to shearing where a tool is forced through metal. The punch usually passes through the metal material into a die. Punching is a very cost effective way to create holes when machining tolerance is not necessary or required.
O'Neal Manufacturing Services has many different pieces of machinery available to create holes, slots, and notches in many different materials. Punching is a viable option to 1-1/4" thickness and hole diameters as large as 1-1/2".
