What Is a Sheet Metal Turret Punch Press?

A CNC turret machine is an excellent addition to the metal fabricator’s list of tools. It allows you to embellish the sheet metal you’re working on with additions such as embossing, extrusions, tabs, and hinges, differentiating it from a laser. A CNC punch press isn’t as sophisticated as a laser in types of shapes, but it works efficiently and quickly to give you the product you need.

Turret Punch Capabilities

Turret presses have the following capabilities:

  • Can handle sheet metal between 1-6mm thick
  • Can emboss, stamp, rib, countersink, and form metal
  • Can punch at a rate of up to 1,200 hits per minute

Turret punching is a specialized process that allows us to cut small uniform holes in basic shapes, like circles, squares, and rectangles, through a turret press or turret punch. It is ideal for mass metal fabrication and effectively creates material for all your projects, including:

  • Car and motorcycle parts
  • Agricultural parts
  • Steps
  • Panels and footings
  • Robot components
  • Chassis
  • 2D cutouts

Our punch press machine works precisely and efficiently, giving you exactly what you need for your product. In addition to turret punching, we can also create custom effects on brass, sheet metal, aluminum, and more:

  • Countersinking
  • Forming
  • Dimpling
  • Embossing

Benefits of CNC Turret Punching


CNC turret punching cannot only punch holes but can also form metal, giving you flanges, ribs, louvers, and more. This is ideal for any prototype, allowing you the ultimate project flexibility. Embellish your projects to your exact specifications with our help.


A turret press punch is high-speed and exact, so you can move quickly through your projects without wasting time. Each movement takes only milliseconds compared to other metal fabricating tools. Every move our experts make with a turret punch is perfect, allowing you to stretch your abilities without worrying about the quality.

High Volume

For large projects requiring many sheets of metal, turret punching is perfect. It moves quickly through large batches with impeccable precision, giving you a reliable way to form your prototypes fast and easily. The speed at which a turret punch machine works allows you to pump out perforated metal faster than ever before, so you can spend more time building, crafting, and creating.

Products Designed By Us

When using our turret punching tool, we can create basic shapes such as squares, rectangles, circles, etc. Though the turret press offers fewer options for shapes than a laser, it works faster. Our CNC turret press can also produce embossing, hinges, tabs, and extrusions.

We have created the following products for customers:

  • Perforated sheets
  • Cable railings and trays
  • Decorative metal covers
  • Washers/brackets
  • Grilled cages, doors, and filters
  • Architectural paneling

These are merely a few examples of what we can produce. At Midland Metal Products, we feel devoted to conquering every challenge and would be happy to discuss your project ideas. We will do our best to create your desired outcome, no matter how complex.

A turret punch is a metalworking machine that uses several revolving punches to produce holes in sheet metal rapidly. Turret punches are used for punching many small holes in succession.

A turret punch is a machine that uses sharp punches to create holes in metal. It can create holes in various shapes and sizes, depending on the type of turret punch used. Some turret punches are also capable of creating curved or angled holes.

A turret punch can punch a variety of materials, including but not limited to:

– Mild steel
– Stainless steel
– Aluminum
– Brass
– Copper

The turret punch is most commonly used in manufacturing and fabrication, where it is employed to create holes in thin metal sheets. It can also be used for marking out areas that will be drilled or cut later on.

A turret punching machine is a computer-controlled metalworking machine that uses a punch and die to cut or shape metal sheets. The turret, mounted on a rotatable shaft, holds several punches and dies. The punches and dies are arranged in stations around the turret’s circumference.

When the turret is rotated so that a particular station is in front of the workpiece, the punch and die at that station are brought down onto the workpiece to cut or shape it. The force exerted by the punches and dies can be varied, allowing them to cut through or shape different thicknesses of metal sheets.

CNC turret punching machines are commonly used for fabricating metal parts.

The machines can be used to cut, form, and weld metal parts using a variety of punches and die. They often produce metal components for automobiles, appliances, and other industrial machinery.
