More Info/Benefits of a Punch Tool
A punch tool, like a back-out punch and an arch punch, is a hard metal rod with a shaped tip at one end and a blunt end that is used to hole punch tough materials. The blunt end is struck by a hammer and the shaped tip punctures the material.
- These durable tools are made of sturdy, tempered materials that resists fracture.
- These punch tools are great for jobs that require insertion of pins, rivets, or bolts.
- Each punch tool can make a different sized hole and can also make different shapes including hexagonal or round.
There are different types of punches for you to use:
- Hollow Punches – are made to puncture the surface and are commonly used with sheet metal or leather.
- Solid Punches – rod shaped tools that are meant to be struck by hammers. Usually used to insert pins to make an impression on your project.
- Pin Punches – have a long head with same diameter as the tip. They are used to remove pressure or solid pins.
- Pilot Punches – drives or removes hollow tension pins. Is commonly referred to as roll pin punches because of the slight bump on its head that allows easier access into a rolled pin.
- Taper Punches – loosens and drives pins. Can be used for coordinating holes.
- Centre Punches – marks where a hole might be drilled.
- Prick Punches – does the same thing as a centre punch but is used on softer materials.
- Aligning Punches – coordinates two different holes so that a fastener can be inserted. Is not meant for driving pins, rivets, or bolts.
