Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is a Piranha Ironworker Machine?


    A Piranha Ironworker Machine is a type of machine tool used in metalworking for punching, notching, and shearing various types of metal. It is named after the Piranha brand, which is owned by the Scotchman Industries, a manufacturer of metal fabrication machinery.

    They are designed with a hydraulic system, which powers various stations such as the punch station, the shear station, the notch station, and the bending station. The punch station is used to punch holes in metal, while the shear station is used to cut metal plates and bars to specific lengths. The notch station is used to create notches in metal, and the bending station is used to bend metal shapes.

    They are widely used in the metalworking industry for a variety of applications, including metal fabrication, construction, and maintenance. They are popular because of their versatility, durability, and ability to handle different materials and thicknesses.

    Additionally, some models of the machine come with optional tooling and accessories, allowing for even more flexibility and customization for specific metalworking tasks.

  • What types of metals do Ironworker Machines process?


    Ironworker machines are capable of processing a wide range of metals, including plate, sheet, bar, channels, angles, beams, pipes, and tubes. The specific types of metal that can be processed will depend on the capacity of the machine and the tooling that is used.

    • Plate: Ironworker machines can be used to cut and punch plate metal, which is a flat and thick piece of metal with a width greater than its thickness. This type of metal is commonly used for structural applications, such as building construction and bridge building.
    • Sheet: Ironworker machines can also be used to cut and punch sheet metal, which is a thinner and more flexible form of metal with a thickness less than 6mm. Sheet metal is commonly used for manufacturing metal products, such as household appliances, HVAC ductwork, and automotive parts.
    • Bar: Ironworker machines can also be used to cut and punch metal bars, which are long, straight pieces of metal with a square or round cross-section. Metal bars are commonly used in construction, manufacturing, and other industrial applications.
    • Channels, angles, and beams: They can also be used to cut and punch structural metals, such as channels, angles, and beams. These types of metals are commonly used in construction and engineering applications for supporting structures and framing.
    • Pipes and tubes: Ironworker machines can also be used to cut and punch pipes and tubes, which are cylindrical structures with hollow interiors. Pipes and tubes are commonly used in plumbing, HVAC, and other mechanical applications.

    Overall, ironworker machines are versatile tools that can handle a wide range of metals and shapes, making them an essential piece of equipment in the metalworking industry.
