Time Savings - Ogura/Punch-Pro users have documented increases in productivity over other holemaking methods. One user stated that he had achieved a 75% time savings over the old method of using twist drills.
Fast Cycle Times - Punch clean and accurate holes in as little 1.5 seconds. A single trigger actuates the punch while an exclusive auto-return mechanism returns the punch to its starting position.
