MTX Flex 6 Hybrid Punch Press Machines
Autoindex System The direct drive tool rotation in the Euromac AutoIndex stations uses fewer mechanical components to guarantee strength, more reliable machining results and reduced maintenance, with huge time savings
The frame of the MTX plus is a Meehanite® nodular cast iron monoblock resistant to 700N/mm², designed by FEM (finite element method). The punching head is directly built into the monoblock frame. In practical terms, like all the other new punching machines, the MTX has a more robust (no welding points), reliable, precise frame which is also particularly compact, using less floor space and ensuring impressive flexibility in loading different sheet sizes. What’s more, thanks to the Flex system, the MTX can punch at high speed while maintaining a constant punching depth.
This flexibility also extends to the turret setup, with 60 or 66 tools.
Computer numerically controlled (CNC) punching is a sheet metal manufacturing process that is carried out by CNC punch presses. These machines can be either a single head and tool rail (Euromac)design or multi-tool turret design. The CNC punching machine is programmed to move a sheet of metal in an x and y direction so as to accurately position the sheet under the machine’s punching ram ready to punch a hole or form.
C- Frame monoblock:
The new frame with an increase of dimensions enables the machine to operate with higher speeds thus ensuring greater stability and working precision.
Our machine frame is a normalized nodular cast iron monoblock in Meehanite® with 700N/mm2, designed with FEM (Finite Element Method), punching head directly built into the monoblock frame.
In practical terms this means a more robust (no welding points), precise and reliable structure being at the same time compact, hence using less floor space and allowing flexibility in loading different sheet sizes.
Key features of the MTX Flex 6 Punch Press Machine
- AUTOINDEX SYSTEM
The direct drive tool rotation in the Euromac AutoIndex stations uses fewer mechanical components to guarantee strength, more reliable machining results and reduced maintenance, with huge time savings.
- UPFORMING SYSTEM
The 6 B stations of the MTX FLEX 12 turret feature retractable dies for more forming flexibility. Standard thick turrettooling forming tools usually have an “active” die. These dies protrude a few millimeters over the normal height of a standard punch die, requiring special attention to setup and programming.
- ELIMINATING RESTRICTION
All additional 6 B-Stations of the MTX FLEX 12 can be raised up to 6 mm only when the tool is actually employed and lowered when it is passive eliminating any restriction.
- VACUUM SYSTEM
Our vacuum system prevents scraps from remaining on the sheet, potentially damaging its surface and sometimes even the tool itself. Strongly recommended when processing thin materials, material with protective film or aluminium in general.
Optional on all models
- LOADING & UNLOADING CAPACITY
Easy loading of material for machining and unloading of finished parts generates much higher productivity for you.
- MACHINING CAPABILITY
As for all Euromac products, flexibility is key: just one machine can process a vast assortment of sizes. All sizes between the stated minimum and maximum dimensions can be processed.

CNC turret machines from Euromac can create many shapes, from simple circles or rectangles to overlapping geometrical 3D designs.
CNC punching plays a significant role in sheet metal manufacturing industries in our local markets, delivering machinery with high accuracy, speed that is competitively priced is the reason our Euromac Turret punch systems are the most popular choice for our customers.

The processing range for most CNC punch presses is 0.5mm to 6.0mm thick in a range of materials including steel, zintec, galvanised steel , stainless steel and aluminium. The choice of hole punched can be as simple as a circle or rectangle right through to special shapes to suit a specific cut out design. By using a combination of single hits and overlapping geometries, complex sheet metal component shapes can be produced. The machine may also punch 3D forms such as dimples, taptite® screw thread plunges, and electrical knockouts etc on either side of the sheet, which are often employed in sheet metal enclosure design.
By using our Euromac machinery you can have a large number of strokes, with several different tools in turn, a turret press may make a wide variety of parts without having to first make a specialised press tool for that task. This saves both time and money, allowing rapid prototyping or for low volume production to start without tooling delays.
A hydraulic ram forces the tooling into the sheet material held in position by clamps on the bed of the punch. The tooling can then be used to create a number of shapes like:
- Centre punches
- Hinge forming
Euromac machines are tailored to meet demanding market requirements; the combination of state-of-the-art technologies and unique concepts assures you advanced, productive and competitive products at all times.
