MBX 6 AutoIndex Metal Punching Machinery
EUROMAC is one of the largest builders of punching equipment in the world. The machines are manufactured in Italy and distributed throughout the Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland .Euromac manufacture CNC Punching Machines, Notchers, and Hydraulic Horizontal Benders.
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 range of optionals available for the MBX plus comprises vacuum system, combined brush and ball tables, Multitool FMTE 10, Multitool FMTE6 and Multitool FMTE4
The frame of the MBX plus is a Meehanite® nodular cast iron monoblock resistant to 700N/mm², designed by FEM (finite element method). It is a high-performance hydraulic machine with the same high-speed axis travel as the MTX plus, achieving a hit rate of 600 per minute. It has some of the key features of Euromac Punching Machines, such as the capability for forming, beading and notching. The MBX plus can also be equipped with up to 60 tools, 30 of them indexed.
MBX 6 Metal Punching Machinery C- Frame monoblock
Our metal punching machinery 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 MBX 6 Plus 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
- TOOLING FLEXIBILITY
Choose the metal punching machinery setup you need: from Single tool (A, B, C or D up to Ø 88,90 mm) to Multitool. Why talk about number of “stations”? What you need is the flexibility to easily and quickly setup your machine with the proper tools needed for your job. Euromac gives you this flexibility, we talk about number of “tools” (up to 66 total tools and 30 indexable, on MTX models).
- 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.
- LOW SPACE REQUIREMENTS
Example: an STX 1250/30-2500 combined with the automatic loading/unloading system occupies just L 6270 mm x D 5030 mm
Manual loading is still possible to speed up production of small parts or batches.
In combination with machines with side chute door, two additional unloading points are provided: 1) up to max part size 200×200 mm – 2) up to max part size 1500×1000 mm depending on machine throat size.

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.
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
Fully Automatic Loading System
Loading and 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.
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.
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.
