Hougen electro-hydraulic hole punchers

Hougen Manufacturing has added two new electro-hydraulic hole punchers to its lineup of hole punching machines.

Hougen hole punchersThe new Hougen-Ogura models 75002.5PR & 75004PR feature a lightweight single body construction allowing users to punch holes in steel in as little as 2.3 seconds.

Both models include the new “Power Retractable” Punch system which allows the user to power reverse the punch back out of hole. This improves productivity in harder, more elastic materials which tend to grip the punch (not allowing it to auto return to the home position) after the hole is produced. The punch units are lightweight at 24.9 lbs (11.3 kg) making them easy to move around and operate without the need for a lift or assistance.

Both the 75002.5PR & 75004PR use only electrical power to operate the motor and the self-contained hydraulic system. No additional hydraulic pumps or hoses are needed. The 75002.PR provides 10.1 tons of punching pressure to punch round holes up to ¾” (19mm) in diameter through ¼” (6.4mm) material and oblong holes up to 9/16” x 13/16” (14mm x 21mm). The 75004PR has an increased punch pressure of 16.9 tons and can punch round and oblong holes in materials up to 3/8” (9.5mm) thick. Both units can punch holes in flat bar, H-steel, angle iron and channel.

The electro-hydraulic hole punchers use the exclusive Hougen®-Ogura® punch & dies which are available in a wide variety of sizes. Accurately locating the hole position is easy with the punch jog down feature and the adjustable throat depth gauge. The punch units are available in 120V & 230V power options and come standard with a work stand for placement of the punch on a work table and a foot switch for hands free operation.
