Punch & Die for Control Panel

These punch and die sets are suitable for creating mounting holes for controllers, switches, indicators, and connectors on the control panel.  They are easier to use than hole saws or jigsaws, and they create holes that have much cleaner edges. 

The punch sets here are either for creating rectangular holes or for round holes. Mounting holes for most of the commonly seen control panel components can be punched using our punch sets. Please see the tables below for dimensions.

These punch and die sets are made for hydraulic drive systems. Compatible manual Hydraulic Knockout Punch Driver can be found on eBay in $70 -150 price range. Unlike the manual punch die that needs to be held on a table wise and crank down by manual wrench, punch & die sets for hydraulic system are easier to use. Very little force is needed to crank the hydraulic driver. It also allows you to punch holes in the corner of an enclosure that a manual punch & die can't reach. 

The thickness of the sheet metal that can be punched varies. It depends on the material and the power generated by the hydraulic punch driver. With an 8 ton punch driver, 1/8" (3 mm) thick aluminum sheet, or 0.06" (1.5 mm) thick carbon steel sheet can be punched.

* For customer who can’t find the right size punch for special rectangular cutout or who has a limited budget:  A simple and economical solution is to use a small rectangular punch/die set to nibble the small hole to the right size. Draw out the lines for the cutout hole on the panel first. Use the small rectangular punch to position a hole at the center. Then use the same punch to nibble the hole with several bites until the right sized cutout is achieved.  Compared to the jigsaw solution, “nibble” is safer and creates a cutout with better quality. In addition, smaller punch is usually cheaper than the large one. The most economical small rectangular punch we offer is $110. You can use it to create all of the rectangular or square cutouts that is bigger than its original size.
