Metal Punching

Precise Shapes, Patterns and Dimpling up to 60’ Long

H.W. Metals has the metal punching capabilities to process materials up to 60’ long and up to 1-1/2” thick. With a 196-ton Franklin CNC punch and a team of skilled operators, we can create precise punch shapes and patterns. We have tooling available for a number of ready-made punch shapes and patterns and can easily procure tooling for custom patterns shapes and dimpling, should your application require them.

Though we specialize in punching and processing larger workpieces up to 60’ in length, we can produce smaller parts and components with equal precision. Built-in plasma heads on the out feed of our punches make it possible to cut longer pieces of material into multiple smaller end products. This process is far more effective and efficient than using multiple, smaller pieces of material to achieve the same result, as it requires less time to load the material and results in less scrap.

The plasma heads on our metal punching equipment can also be used to cut contours into material, as needed. For more precise and complex metal cutting, we offer laser and plasma cutting services.

H.W. Metals is one of few steel processors with the ability to add dimpling to material. Rather than punching holes or patterns clean through the metal, we can add raised (or lowered) impressions for improved tread grip or other purposes.
