Sawing • Shearing • Hole Punching • Forming • Laser Cutting
Should you require your steel or aluminum cut to a specific length or shape, we possess the expertise and appropriate equipment to saw it to your exact specifications.
Also known as die cutting, shearing offers an advantage over other forms of metal cutting because it neither produces chipping nor relies on melting or burning. We most commonly perform shearing on steel and aluminum sheets and plates, but also offer it on rods as well.
In this metal forming process, a punch press exerts great pressure on a piece of metal in order to form an exactly sized hole. It is the ideal treatment for pieces through which wires or piping must be fitted.
This process relies on mechanical deformation to reshape a workpiece without adding or removing material to it. The great value of this technique is that it doesn’t change the workpiece’s mass.
