Cutting punches are the active elements of your tool, enabling proper cutting, folding, or forming of your pieces. Our range of standard cutting elements is available in our catalogue with over 9,000 punches references kept in stock and machined to your specifications. We also create custom punches according to your drawings to meet all your needs.

Standard Punches

Our range of standard punches from the Porter Besson brand is available in stock with different types of heads to adapt to various needs:

Cylindrical Head Punches:

Cylindrical head punches with a 5mm head and 8mm head for heavy work are available in stock with or without an ejector*. Cylindrical head punches are advantageous for easy implementation and precise orientation due to a highly accurate alignment plate. We also have a range of pilot punches with cylindrical heads for guiding the strip.

Micro Cylindrical Head Punches:

Micro series cylindrical head punches have a 3mm head. The low head thickness reduces punch bulkiness and allows punches to be positioned closer together. They can also be used as ejectors.

Conical Head Punches:

Conical head punches are available in stock with either a 60° or 30° angle, with or without an ejector*. They have reduced space requirements, allowing for closer punch spacing compared to other head types. This is ideal for perforated sheet applications where closely spaced punches are needed. We also offer conical heads with a 60° angle in various diameters.

Ball Lock Punches:

Ball-lock punches are available for both light-duty and heavy-duty applications, with or without an ejector*. They allow for easy and quick punch removal without touching the punch holder, thanks to a ball-lock mechanism, reducing downtime.

Bottleneck Punches:

Bottleneck punches are available in stock with or without an ejector*. They ensure a better distribution of the shockwave, guaranteeing head strength even in extreme usage conditions.

*The ejector facilitates waste removal.

All our punches can be coated to suit your needs.

Standard shapes punches and dies


Our punches are available in several materials, each with different properties:

Material A Z160CDV12 : 12% Chromium Highly Alloyed Steel
High Hardness : 58 - 62 HRc
Used for thin sheets and low to medium hardness.
Note: An additional tempering process is required for coating.

Material B Acier rapide HSS : Z90WDCV
High Hardness : 60 - 64 HRc
Used for hard sheets (Stainless Steel / High strength steel...)

Material C Carbide
The hardest material we can offer. Very brittle. This material is used for high-speed applications and flat cuts only (not compatible with lateral forces).

Material E ASP 23
High Hardness: 62 - 66 HRc
Sintered High-Speed Steel (powder technology). Less fragile, resistant to breakage. Very good compression resistance.

Material K X110 CrMoV8 - T6
High Hardness: 61 - 63 HRc
Combines the hardness of Material B with the resilience of Material A. This material offers an excellent technical compromise.

Material S M4/1.3351/HS 6.5.4
High Hardness: 62 - 66 HRc

If you have a specific material requirement, please let us know, and we will assess its feasibility.


Punches are characterized by the following dimensions:

Body Diameter (D)

Total Length (L)

Working Length (L2)

Form Dimension: P and W for form dimensions.

Form Orientation (form punches are oriented using an alignment plate).

All these dimensions should be specified in your price inquiries.
