A flat pattern is usually cut to net size dimensions. These blanks can go on to be formed into various shapes or remain a finished part in the flat state. Our flat pattern processes can cut many types of sheet metal including; Aluminum, Titanium, Inconel, Hastelloy, etc.
Perforated sheets are another one Compucraft’s specialties. We can supply the sheets in the flat state or forming using one of our many forming processes.

Our Water Jet process can handle sheets up to 36” wide x 120” long.
A turret punch or turret press is a type of punch press used for cutting flat patterns punching. Using different configurations and sizes of punch/die combinations just about any configuration can be achieved using this process.
