With the latest cutting edge technology using Nisshinbo's turrent punch machine, we are able to meet tight deadlines and reduce costs for our customers.
The turret punch capability has a maximum working range of 3000mm X 2000mm, easily accommodating the standard sheet size 3000mm x 1500mm. The axis speed is has an accuracy of 0.1mm per metre, producing precision components fast. Plasmet uses the punch up to 3mm but it is capable of punching to 6mm with a press capacity of 220KN.(22 tonnes). The number of turret stations is capable of holding 12 tools with 2 indexed stations.
Our router is a CNC controlled dual head router which is designed to accommodate a wide range of materials and applications including the manufacture of Aluminium Composite (ACM) Panels in a variety of different materials including Reynobond®, Alucobond®, and Dibond®. Combining the routers capabilities with advanced CAD/CAM software, ACM panels are processed faster, more consistently, minimising overall production costs.
Capable of processing materials with a working range of 4500mm x 1500mm, Plasmet also utilizes the router in many other applications including engraving and signwrigting in various materials including pre-coated aluminium including Reynolux®, PVF2, ARS aluminium.
