Folding Hole Punch
Benefit: Cost Saving, Increased Component Complexity
Main Forming Process: Metal Injection Moulding
End Use Sector: Consumer Goods
Material: Ferrous


The hole punch is made from 17-4 PH stainless (Fe-Cr-Ni Cu). This is a new MIM component which can be used for the punching of two or four holes in paper. It is foldable making it ideal for use whilst travelling. The MIM part, which provided a 50% cost saving compared with other methods, has a very intricate shape with a long through groove of 0.8mm and holes in different directions.
