Standard Punch Set-Up

Proper punch set-up is crucial to keep your ironworkers running efficiently and your employees safe.

A punch may wear down, but it shouldn’t break or crack. If you’re regularly breaking or cracking tools, improper set-up is often a contributing factor. American Punch can help. Send us the broken tools and a sample of the material being punched, and we’ll provide recommendations for improvement.
