Services for Punching Tools
Maintenance and Replacement of Column FramesThe importance of your column frame's condition is mostly underrated. For example, your machine works 4.000 strokes per hour => 8 M strokes per year (1-shift) => 120 M strokes in 5 years (3-shifts) Way of 15 mm per stroke equals a travel distance of 3.600 km in 5 years (3-shifts) Result: Wear-out between the columns and the guide bushing Guide / connection plate can tilt due to the bigger clearance and therefore the punching force will not be transferred parallel onto the punching tool Reduced quality of the punched cards and increased wear and tear of the punching tool. This can cause issues, especially when used with PC tools. We offer a overhaul and replacement for your column frame for any punch machine, so you can achieve best possible card punch quality again.
