Hole Punching is a process that involves hardened tools with sharp edges and applied force to sheer out unwanted material, creating a hole in your stainless-steel sheeting. The force that is used can come from various sources such as hydraulic, electrical, pneumatic, or manual.


  • Speed – The process of stainless-steel hole punching is very fast compared to other hole creating processes.
  • Variety of shapes – Because the material removal process involved in hole punching uses force rather than rotation, holes can be cut into a variety of shapes such as square, triangular, and much more


  • Tool wear – If you’re doing hole punching yourself, your tools may lose their sharpness and create jagged or poorly-formed holes that damage your material. At Stainless Outfitters Inc., we can provide hole-punching services for you that will always be of the highest quality.
  • Material thickness – Hole punching has limitations in the thickness of material it can cut through. We are able to work through thicker materials than you may be able to do on your own.
