Here’s One Leaving our store to a customer who needed it fast! – Shipped from our stock
Here’s A Great Configuration Idea

To Speed up production our customer installed a second punch unit on his 55 Ton Edwards Ironworker.

This company is a manufacturer of utility trailers. These are the flatbed trailers available to attach to trucks and cars. They are fabricated out of angled steel parts joined together. The bed and sidewalls can be composed of either expanded metal or 2 x 6 timber.

The steel angle requires two different sized punched holes for attachment. By adding the second punch unit to the 55 Ton Ironworker’s Open station he saves significant time which would have been spent changing punch dies.

Jobs go through faster to meet distributor demands.

Great Idea!

** The Powerlink System allows this ironworker to power accessory tooling: 10 or 20 Ton Shop Press, 10 Ton Pipe/Tube Bender, Pipe, Tube & Section Radius Roller. Powerlink System is an option that must factory installed on new ironworkers.

* Free shipping in continental US only, additional charges for Alaska & Hawaii. ( but we can do better)

Ques: Will this ironworker punch 2″ angle iron. Answer: Yes – typically no problem. Hang leg without hole down front of pedestal die table… in some rare cases an offset die is available for tight spaces.

With an oblong punch and die set it will be no problem.  Call Jason for details and pricing.
