Punching Angle

Punching holes in angle can be quite challenging if the die block on your machine is nonadjustable. Luckily for you, we have the solution!

Offset punches with matching offset dies solve this problem and allow you to punch closer to the inside leg of angle iron. The punch is machined offset based on the body diameter of the punch and size of the hole. For example, if you're using a F-16 punch (1-1/16 body) and punching a 1/2" offset hole, the offset will be .281". (See drawing). The die will be offset .281" as well to match the punch. The tooling is inserted in the machine the same as a standard punch and die.

We manufacture offset punches and dies for every ironworker to make your job easier. Have questions? Contact us anytime to see how offset punches and dies can help your production! We can be reached at or by phone at
