Click to ViewThis machine is used to shape sheet metal by deforming it or cutting it with punches and dies The punch is usually the top (male) tool and the die (female) bottom tool. It can frequently be used to punch holes in sheet metal in one operation, rather than by cutting the hole by slower drilling / milling operations. If used for piercing holes in sheet metal work, the fly press tool itself consists of a punch and clearance die, into which it just fits. This type of set up is known as open tooling as the punch and die are separate from each other.
