CNC Punch/Laser Combination

Combining the best features of a punch, with the flexibility of a laser to deliver the ultimate in performance and cost savings for you.

Manufacturing expertise at every stage

With extensive experience in sheet metal manufacture, our team of experts utilise the most appropriate and cost-effective methods for each product. The punch laser CNC machine at Unifabs combines the best features of a punch, with the flexibility of a laser to deliver the ultimate in performance.

Taking the strongest features from each machine we are able to punch, form, tap and laser cut on one machine, eliminating secondary operations and thus the requirement to program twice for one part. 

One machine, two technologies, first-class efficiency

A part with an intricate outside profile combined with raised punch forms within it can easily be produced on the punch laser CNC machine. First, it punches the internal forms, then switches the multi-tool turret to the laser head to create the outside profile.

This switch from punch to laser technology can be applied across a full nest of parts. To further maximize efficiency, the laser punch combination machine is coupled with automated load/offload cells, allowing lights-out manufacturing.

Advantages of a punch laser CNC machine  

This combination of technologies delivers an array of benefits. It reduces operator requirements since one CNC machine performs the processes instead of two.

It also reduces production times because parts don’t need to be transferred to secondary processes. Utilising a laser can eliminate the need for complex or custom punch tooling thus reducing costs.

All of these advantages translate to high-quality, lower-cost parts delivered to you faster.
