I'm thinking I may end up doing something closer to the Amada SP30 punch press for a shop CNC punch(single station). It would basically be a small capacity punch with an X and Y axis attached and would allow a much more stable punching station. The part is just held up against the X and Y gauge blocks and then relocated each time the axis move to a new coordinate. The SP30 comes with a 3 station tool holder but even with a single station tool holder it is quick to make tool changes.
Apparently there are not too many CNC punch operators that frequent the CNCZone as there are no replies and probably as little interest in this type of machine. For sheet metal a punch is much faster than a laser and machining and is optimum for production.
Maybe that is why there is not even a forum dedicated to CNC punch presses.
