NORTHAMPTON, U.K. - May 23, 2013 - PRLog -- As it’s such an important, high-value piece of kit, you’ll want to make sure you’re getting the best machine for you – and that you’re getting the best possible performance from it.

As experts in industrial machinery – especially in sheet metal punching – Punch Press Services ( are here to help with five top tips...

1. Research thoroughly before buying a punching machine

As you’ve probably noticed, when it comes to punch press machines, there are so many options. Do you need an automated system? Hydraulic or electrical ram? A smaller compact machine or a large heavy-duty punch press centre? Before even considering buying a machine, do your research to find the best for your specific needs. (You’ll find lots of helpful information at Punch Press Services’ own website at

2. Choose a well-respected industrial machinery manufacturer

Remember, your punching machine is a hugely important part of your plant, so you’ll want to choose a name you can trust. By sticking to the bigger names in punch press technology such as Rainer, Trumpf or Amada, not only will you ensure you’ll get a great quality, highly reliable machine, you’ll also have the peace of mind that spare parts are readily available.

3. Buy a used punching machine and save money

If budgets are a concern – and at the moment, it’s a safe bet they are – you can make substantial savings by buying a used punching machine. A refurbished, retro-fitted used punch press machine will provide you with years of reliable service – at a fraction of the cost of a brand new machine.

4. Service your machine regularly

It’s essential to keep your punch press machine serviced regularly. Not only will you keep it working at maximum efficiency, you’ll also be able to highlight potential issues before they become real problems. Regular servicing means less chance of downtime – and for every moment your machine isn’t punching, it’s losing money.

5. Speak to Punch Press Services

When it comes to punch press machines, Punch Press Services are trusted, reliable experts. Speak to them with your sheet metal requirements and they’ll help you pick out the right punching machine for you. They always have a wide selection of used punch press machines from Amada, Trumpf and Rainer in stock – along with a huge range of spare parts.
