WHAT IS SHEET METAL PUNCHING?
Punching is the process of creating metal components by using a punch. It’s a process that can be used on sheet metal and is a cost-effective way to create holes and patterns in materials in medium to high production volumes. Punching is a quick process and can create multiple shaped holes and complex patterns.
WHAT IS WELDING?
Welding is the process that joins materials, like metals, together by heating both until the ends become molten. Pressure and heat can both be used to produce a weld.
