Why Total Metal Products?
Providing metal punching solutions is a core expertise of Total Metal Products (TMP). We have been designing, producing, servicing and installing metal punching solutions, either standalone or integrated into production systems, for over 10 years.
Metal Punching Solutions
Total Metal Products (TMP), a sector leading machine design and tool making company, who design, manufacture, commission and service production processing systems, including metal punching operations.
TMP are a leading machine design and tool making company, which continually delivers high quality production manufacturing solutions across multiple industry sectors and business sizes.
All our metal punching solutions are designed ergonomically to ensure the workplace fits the needs of the worker, rather than the worker having to adjust to the workplace. Where integrated into a production line our solutions are designed to provide the business with a seamless material flow to keep operation time to a minimum.
TMP’s experience providing high quality solutions extends to the use of cutting-edge materials, design and material handling techniques which maximise production line uptime and reduce maintenance costs.
If you are interested in automating your production line TMP has an extensive knowledge of, and experience in, providing robotic / automation solutions.
Designed, Manufactured & Assembled in-house
All of our metal punching solutions are designed, manufactured and assembled in-house. Our industry experienced team of designers, project management and production engineers, work together to produce the most effective metal punching solution which meets with your specification and business requirements. We are proud to state that we always deliver our solutions on time and on budget.
TMP also designs and manufactures the production line process equipment e.g. stretch forming, stretch bending, roll forming, assembly etc, which sits either side of the metal punching operation. With an extensive experience across a broad range of technologies we are able to provide you with the optimum solution for your production requirements.
Our metal punching solutions are designed to minimise production errors due to misalignment, waste blockage, tool breakage etc. Misalignment during the punching function not only causes problems in production and post production, with an increased level of production rejection and poor quality increases the financial burden on the business, increasing your OPEX costs and ultimately impacting your profitability and adding to your environmental impact.
Does your business have a requirement for prototype, low volume or end-of-life manufacturing? If it does, we can provide your business with solutions for these challenges via our group partner company TMP Manufacturing.
TMP Manufacturing are able to produce your low volume requirements, producing to schedule, with management of your raw material supply chain if required; we also provide finished product storage and onward delivery to your customer using your systems, packaging and paperwork.
What is Metal Punching?
The metal fabricating process which removes a scrap “slug” from the metal workpiece each time a punch enters the punching die, is known as Metal Punching.
This process leaves a hole, the shape and dimensions of the punch & punching die in the metal workpiece.
The punching process features include:
- The ability to produce holes in both strip and sheet metal during medium or high production processes.
- The ability to produce holes of varying shapes.
- The ability to produce finished workpieces economically and consistently.
During the punching process a steel punch, made of hardened steel, is forced under pressure, mechanical, pneumatic or hydraulic into and through the workpiece:
- The punch diameter / shape determines the hole created in the workpiece.
- The punched part falls out as scrap after the punch has entered the die.
- The scrap “slug” drops through the die and collected for recycling.
TMP can produce a broad range of toolmaking solutions.
We have extensive experience in:
- Stretch Forming
- Stretch Bending
- Roll Forming
- Welding Jigs
- Assembly Jigs
- Sheet Metal Piercing
- Toolmaking Design
- Tool Room Services
- Contract Manufacture
Yes; TMP has many years’ experience providing automated solutions for metal punching operations, from simple waste management to fully integrated and / or robotic workpiece placement and removal.
TMP can provide a full range of business value added services.
As well as the design and manufacture of production tools, process improvement consultancy and production automation, we also provide our customers with:
- Prototyping/ initial sample production
- Low volume or end-of-life production
- Supply chain management
- Finished product storage and scheduled delivery to your customer using your systems, packaging and paperwork
- Product optimisation
Supporting the world’s biggest brands
TMP expands our CNC High Speed milling and turning capacity with the addition of a Haas UMC 750 5-Axis and Mazak QT250MY turning centre. Further investment in our toolroom, build room and design centre are planned for 2023.
At TMP we continually reinvest in the business. TMP launches operations in North America and Turkey. TMP reduces its environmental impact by installing a 66 kWp solar farm.
Implementing a suite of internationally recognised accreditations in Quality, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety management, demonstrates our commitment to continually improve our working methods and working environment.
