Window Industry: Mirror Image Punching


Punch Tools has developed a wide variety of specialized industry knowledge while developing mirror image punch technology for the windows and doors industry.

We have developed several industry advancements that separate us from our competitors. For example, our multiple tiered, holes within hole punching methods. Our designs are critical for projects that require: perfect design alignment, mating left and right or top and bottom parts, custom mullions, and multiple hole clusters punched in the perfect position every time.

From working with intricate extrusions to efficient design punching presses, we can make the perfect custom solution to fit your project.
