The Sanderson TPM4 is the world's fastest commercially available tube perforation machine. Capable of punching over 6000 accurately-placed holes in under a minute in tube ranging in diameter from 1.5" to 4", the TPM4 is in a class of its own. The TPM4 is designed for very quick cycle times, minimal tube distortion and burring, easy programming and storing of new parts, as well as rapid (under 2min) tool changes without the need for tools.
