Turret Metal punching equipment is set up as an individual cell. Material is loaded through an automated system unique to that individual CNC punch. Then processed (punched) and unloaded back onto a pallet. It is then transferred via forklift to the next operation. The automation utilized in this cell make “lights out operation” possible which in turn helps reduce cost and maximize use of capacity.
Turret presses and lasers are used to punch, cut, and separate the parts from the sheets. These machines are highly accurate, fast, and can be reprogrammed whenever a part may be revised. This allows Watson to produce small or large quantities efficiently usually without any tooling costs.
