CNC Ironworker machine is an essential tool in any fabrication shop or company .it performs various tasks without the need to retool. It helps save time, eliminate waste, increase productivity, and create smooth holes and cuts.
What are the Benefits of Using an cnc Ironworker ?
Unlike other traditional cnc machine that may take several hours to setup the ironworker. In order to notch, shear, and punch sheet metal cnc ironworker equipment reduces the working hours taken to work on material by improving the speed of operation and rating .
They feature multiple working stations that allow you to move from one activity to the next . without making any time consuming tooling changes.
Since cnc ironworker machine feature various working stations and can easily retooled to perform additional operations.
They help reduce the workload and, in turn, increase the average throughput and yield.
Helping Reduce Waste
Unlike the traditional punching, notching, and shearing that yielded a lot of waste due to human errors. cnc ironworking tools help reduce waste by improving precision. and effectiveness by allowing the operator to get up close with each punching, shearing, notching and forming job
Creating Smooth Cuts and Holes
With cnc ironworker, you can make smooth cuts and holes on steel plates .and sheets and avoid post cutting operations that can be both expensive and time-consuming. The setup is quick, the operation easy and the capability wide ranging.
What does cnc IronWorker Do?
There are a lot of metal fabrication tools on the market .and some of them have names that don’t always tell a beginner what they actually do.
Obviously a Metal Shear, shears metal and a metal punch punches metal, but what does an “IronWorker” machine do? We decided to give a quick rundown so you can better educated when shopping for your next metal fabrication tool to add to your garage.
An iron worker traditionally is the term used to describe the “metal workers” that build structures from raw materials.
They tend to build the framework or base structure of bridges, sky scrapers, buildings, etc. but in the tool industry an “IronWorker” is a tool in shops to help fabricate raw materials or “iron”.
What are the differences in cnc IronWorkers?
CNC IronWorkers come in a variety of styles, sizes, and price ranges. These are almost always a larger tool that is heavy and take up a decent foot print.
The size and weight is a necessary evil because of the force it requires to cut, notch .and punch thicker materials.
The cheapest and most basic ironworkers use leverage to operate them .and a long handle attached to the pivot point to work the tool.
These machines bolted to a heavy bench or stand that is fixtured to the shop floor.
The force required to cut thicker materials will vary on the strength and weight of the operator.
If you’re a small production shop or a home hobbyist a manual ironworker might fit the bill as it takes up the least amount of space . and will be the most afforable of the bunch.
If you’re doing a lot of cuts in thicker materials . or plan to do high production work you may need to speed up the process.
Power ironworkers usually have an electric motor that will spin gears to close the jaws of the tool .or will drive hydraulic rams that force the cutting blades down.
These modern, professional ironworkers cost many times more than a manual ironworker . And usually take up a large foot print on the shop floor. Many of these larger power ironworkers also require 3 phase electrical service . And may not make sense for a weekend warrior or small professional shop.
A hydraulic ironworker can be used for punching, shearing, notching, bending and other metal fabrication functions. Special tooling department can design custom tools specific to your metal fabricating needs.
Ironworkers save time, increase productivity, eliminate waste and create clean smooth cuts and holes.
