Piranha P-50 Ironworker

Piranha P-50 ironworker machines are the entry-level of the iconic line of Piranha hydraulic ironworker machines, but they don’t lack the toughness and precision that is expected from a Piranha Ironworker. They are just the right tool for many jobs, but if you need more, check out our full line of ironworker machines.

  • Industry leading cycle times—punch holes in less time than other ironworkers.
  • 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.
  • Ergonomics—Convenient work height and visibility for all stations. The single work height also provides added benefits when using roller feed tables.

Ironworker Machine Build and Testing

Piranha Ironworker Machine Build and Testing Process

STANDARD FEATURES

  1. Urethane Stripper Attachment- keeps material flat through the punching process, eliminating
    distortion.  The shorter required stroke gives you a faster punching cycle.
  2. Mechanical Shear Hold-downs- clamps material at change of material thickness.  Part movement is eliminated by clamping the part throughout the entire shearing cycle.
  3. Visibility- a direct line of sight over the hold down bar allows the operator to easily and accurately line up cuts to the shear blades.
  4. Flat Bar Shear- the low rake angle shear design results in flatter and higher quality sheared parts.  Shear blades have four usable edges giving you a longer life and less expensive blades.
  5. Angle Shear- the square upper angle knife has four cutting radius to better fit the angle being sheared, giving you lower distortion and a higher quality cut.
  6. Coper Notcher- the low rake angle blade keeps part flat and under control during notching.
Ironworker Workstation Height

Piranha work stations are at a consistent, ergonomic level throughout the entire machine.  Easily adaptable to material feed systems without the need to adjust the height between stations.
