TQC have designed and manufactured a number of bumper punch systems varying in complexity.
Generally, bumpers are manually loaded and unloaded through a light guard and then automatically punched.

Any waste material is gathered via chutes feeding bins outside the guarded areas. The punches are actuated using hydraulics or pneumatics or a combination of both.
