Piranha P-140 Ironworker Machine

With 140 tons of punching force, the Piranha Model P-140 is truly the king of single operator ironworker machines.

Piranha P-140 Ironworker Machine

With 140 tons of punching force, the Piranha Model P-140 is truly the king of single operator ironworker machines.

  • The P-140 has more standard workstations than any other ironworker machine in its class. This includes punching, bending, bar shear, angle shear, round bar shear, and an integrated coper/notcher.
  • The P-140 also has a dovetail slide that allows an operator to switch from punching to bending in just a few seconds
  • The P-140 has full electrical control of its stroke with a footswitch and limit switch stroke controls for fast punching cycles.
  • The no slug-loss shearing saves material, keeps the machine area cleaner, and offers larger material capacity than the competition. A wide variety of optional tooling is available to enhance the P-140’s capabilities.
  • Piranha’s incomparable integrated coper/notcher station outperforms any other ironworker. Notch from thick to thin, remove the full leg from angle iron, shave even the smallest piece from the end of the work piece, and maintain total control of the part – from any angle.

Piranha P-140 Ironworker Machines Boast

  • Industry leading cycle times—punch holes in less time than other ironworker machines.
  • Urethane Strippers—Results in less part distortion, faster cycle times, no need for stripper height adjustment.
  • Integrated notching station—Low shear removes fillet for precise, burr-free cuts and clean notches.
  • Quick-Change Tooling—Split dovetail slide mountings—make tool changes from punching to bending in less than one minute.
  • Automatic Urethane Hold-Downs—This unique Piranha feature, coupled with a low rake angle, keeps parts from deforming or shifting during the shearing process. The hold-downs work automatically, eliminating the need for time-consuming adjustments between cuts.
  • Ergonomics—Convenient work height and visibility for all stations. The single work height also provides added benefits when using roller feed tables.
