Similar to our Nailslotting line, our Rotary Weep-hole Punch Inserts or Drag style Weep-Hole Punches are being used by a large number of vinyl siding manufacturers at line speeds in excess of 200 feet per minute. They have proven to be effective in producing a quality product while helping to reduce manufacturing costs. Their durability and quality results have made them the choice of many extruded vinyl manufacturers.
The punch wheel is Urethane coated and driven by the product. The punches and anvils are manufactured from high-speed steel and machined to match the customer’s product profile, producing a clean cut. A pneumatic cylinder is used to engage and disengage the punch wheel from the product.
The Weep-hole units are supplied as a quick-change insert. The Weep-Hole Insert can be mounted by itself or on a Puller Mount Quick Change Plate, Stand Alone, or with another piece of equipment, such as a Nailslotter, or Puller. Using our Standard Quick Change Mounts, customers can change a Weep-Hole Insert in less than one minute!
Our Weep-Hole Inserts have many features that bring a quick payback to the user. They have been designed to be both durable and light. The ease of adjustment and sharpening helps reduce the cost of maintenance. The use of durable Hardened Tool Steel & Carbide for cutting edges extends tool life. Other Weep-Hole components are made from anodized aluminum, Bronze, Zinc Plated mild steel or stainless steel to minimize corrosion.
