Tube Punching, Tube Piercing & Tube Notching Machines
Criterion offers a wide variety of Tube Punching Machines and Tube Notching Machines ranging from single hand loaded Tube Punching and Tube Notching Units to Hopper Fed Automatic Machines producing in excess of 1,000 pierced and notched tubes per hour.
Criterion also manufactures programmable CNC Tube Punching and Tube Notching Machines for complex distortion free hole tube punching and tube notching applications.
Criterion Tube Punching and Tube Notching Machines are constructed using standard modules, and are available in both "dimpled" hole and "distortion free" hole styles.
The following photos and videos show several typical tube punching and tube notching applications.
Triple Action Tube Punch Units are available in several sizes and configurations and can be built into simple hand loaded or fully automatic Tube Punch Machines.
Six model 5A Triple Action Punch Units are integrated into a 4-Station Automatic Tube Fabrication System. These units punch 6 slots simultaneously.
Bundles of cut-to-length tubing are automatically unscrambled, seam oriented and fed into a Flexible Tube Punching Machine.
A mandrel is inserted inside the tube in order to punch a distortion free hole from both directions simultaneously.
Holes are continuously punched in a 2.75" diameter x .165" wall tube. Production rate is 270 per hour.
Square tubes are automatically punched on both ends, and on all four sides. Production rate is 1,100 tubes per hour.
Two tubes per cycle are automatically fed into the press, and approximately 18 distortion free holes per part are punched.
This automatic tube punching machine produces both dimpled and distortion-free holes on a bent tubular frame.
This Punching Machine alternately punches holes in a right and left hand tubular frame.
This Punching Machine punches large dimpled holes with minimum distortion.
Punch Units can be relocated and re-tooled for many different tubular parts.
Model 5A Units have the capability of punching holes from one or both sides of the tube simultaneously.
