Powerful production software for punching systems

PUC-C|ontrol® is a professional software system to control punch presses including the material handling from a coil. PUC-C|ontrol® is a fully developed and stable software system. It enables a simple, computer-aided programming of products, production control and host connections.

With PUC-C|ontrol®, you can create desired die-cutting products on a graphical, easy-to-use user interface. PUC-C|ontrol® generates and downloads the machining program automatically to the punch press.

PUC-C|ontrol® automatically creates and maintains all necessary parameters and records the entire machining process.

PUC-C|ontrol® is built for punch presses with:

  • Eccentric presses

  • Hydraulic presses

  • Servo presses

  • Forming machines

  • Moveable cutters

Typical applications:

  • Eccentric punch presses with tool pusher
  • Hydraulic punch presses with multiple tool-frames
  • Hydraulic punch presse with cross adjusting axis, set-up axis and so on, decoiler, lining machines, punch presses, forming machines and moveable cutters
  • Material loading with handling unit, punch press and depilling/packaging


  • Contract manufacturing
  • Grating manufacturing
  • Staircase production
  • Lighting produciton
  • Shelf production
  • Facade manufacturing

PUC-C|ontrol® - Advantages


A well-thought-out control mechanism is the basement of a well-running production. More than 20 years of experience and an ongoing development made PUC-C|ontrol® to an extreme stable and sophisticated software package. On the one hand allows the elaborated system a maximum of flexibility in the production and the well-developed process- and control logic reduces at the same time the number of possible error-sources.

With PUC-C|ontrol®, you can control your production extremly quick an efficient. You can change the products and their programs shortly within several mouse clicks. Long time for programming is not needed anymore, even for complex products.

The editing-screen looks always the same, no matter which control unit is used.Therefore even unexperienced user can operate all existing punch press quickly.

PUC-C|ontrol® pros

  • Simple and intuitive handling through graphical user interface.
  • Lower set-up times and lower rejections.
  • Improvement of the product quality.
  • Quicker program change.
  • Produce even small amounts cost effective.
  • More advantage in competition through flexible production.
  • Same user-interface independent of the producer of the punch press.

PUC-C|ontrol® - The software in detail

With PUC-C|ontrol® from the product planning to the finished product in few steps

Program administration

  • Various number of programs possible.
  • Distribution of the product programs in multiple directory levels possible.
  • Every program with HELP-file to support the set-up.
  • Free selectables storage location (server, client).
  • Supports the product management.

Product program creation

  • Input of the die-cutting coordinates with a graphical proof of the position and the tool outline.
  • Import of the die-cutting coordinates from text-, excel- or dxf-files possible.
  • Including of outline press cut.
  • Creation of master-boards with Excel-sheets to generate boards automatically after specification of the overall-length.
  • Create the programm in the office, call and start the program at the workstation at the machine.

Production control

  • Correction of the product length by presetting the measured length and calculation of a correction value. The correction at the machine can be done with two different methods.
    1. Factor correction (every infeed value gets changed by a calculated factor)
    2. Linear correction (every punch position gets recalculated)
  • Acceleration- and deceleration ramps are getting calculated automatically for a gentle material machining.
  • Correction of the number of pieces during the progress.
  • Correction of the machine speed during the progress.


  • Each job, which gets downloaded to the NC-controller, gets protocolled with date and time.
  • If the value for the lenght, the speed or the number of pieces gets changed during progress, the changed value gets protocolled.
  • Continous protocolling of machine speed, machine state and machine faults.
  • Simple manufacturing control and post calculation through permanent protocolling of all relevant data.

Tool wear protocolling

By detecting the punch cycles for every tool it is possible to count every punching stroke. This enables the control and the preventive post-editing of the tools.

Fault display

All fault messages which are coming from the NC-control, can get protocolled and displayed with date, start- and end time.


PUC-C|ontrol® can access all control systems, for example:

  • Indramat
  • Elau
  • Siemens SPS (S5, S7)
  • All control systems which are programable via interface.

S7-Tools for infeed control

Communication between PC >><< infeed control
Evaluation of the transferred information for further use

  • Tool control after infeed
  • Infeed length in X (and Y if necessary)
  • Infeed speed and acceleration
  • Tool to control infeed
  • Control of the press (only for excentric presses)
  • Release of the data transfer
  • Block stepping after completion of the infeed

The function blocks can be provided for S7-300 and S7-1500 controller.
