Picket Tooling

Cleveland Punch and Die manufactures standard and custom Picket Tooling for the ornamental iron and residential fence industry.
CPD picket tooling is stocked in our F-26 punch and our F-62 die. Our stock tooling generates a 60 degree picket on square tubing, but we can manufacture any specific degree per our customer's request. We stock picket tools for use with 1/2", 5/8", 3/4" and 1" square tubing. It is important to remember when you are punching a hole for a square picket to pass through, you will need a hole slightly larger than the picket itself. For example, if you are trying to pass a 1/2" square picket through a piece of material, we recommend you punch a 17/32" square hole to allow the picket to pass through the material adequately.
Cleveland Punch has also recently manufactured a custom picket tooling set for fabricating aluminum residential fence. This tooling package was customized to fit the customer's machine and job specifications. You can use it for round or square-shaped posts and pickets. Call your Cleveland Punch representative today for any picket tooling needs.

Corner Radius Tooling

Cleveland Punch and Die’s corner radius tooling is perfect for punching a radius on the corner of square or rectangle material. We stock 3/8, 7/16, ½, 9/16 and ¾” corner radius punch and die sets and special sizes can be manufactured upon request.

Corner radius tooling is easy to use.  First, place the punch and die in your ironworker as you would a standard shape. After the punch and die are in the machine, jog the punch down so the guide is slightly above the die. At this point, make sure the punch and die are aligned properly. Once they are aligned, tighten the coupling nut, die block and the setscrew on the die. During the corner radius punching process, the guide of the punch will stay in the die at all times. This will reduce run time and ensure accuracy on each radius. The stroke of the punch can be controlled by the limit switch on your ironworker.

Remember, Cleveland Punch always recommends using PunchEasy lubricant to reduce galling and increase life of each punch and die.
