Bruderer UK’s managing director Adrian Haller
A ‘UK first’ is set to take place at MACH 2024
in April when Bruderer UK
will demonstrate its BSTL 350-88 running live (Stand 6-482). The leading manufacturer of high-speed presses will set up a full production line to showcase to visitors the machine’s capability in the volume production of small and miniature components. The Bruderer stand will be a key feature of the MMMA’s Metalworking Village, a dedicated, focused zone within the MACH 2024
The BSTL 350-88 comes into its own for precision and continuity and uses up to 30% less energy when compared to older models. For the first time at a major exhibition, a turnkey line will be established, featuring a ‘state of the art’ pallet decoiler and winder, with purpose-built ‘MACH’ tooling set to produce commemorative giveaways for visitors to the stand.
Experts from Bruderer UK will also be on hand to talk about the company’s growing range of machines and associated partner technology that is helping its customer base in automotive, aerospace, building products and the rapidly emerging electrification market.
Bruderer UK’s managing director Adrian Haller said: “MACH 2024
will be a massive moment for our UK business and will be the first time anyone will have seen the BSTL 350-88 produce products at a major manufacturing event. It is going to be one of the main attractions of the rapidly growing MMMA’s Metalworking Village at the exhibition and we are looking to showcase to domestic customers how they can remain competitive when tendering for mass production projects at home and overseas.”
He continued: “This latest press will feature Bruderer’s latest control system that can be accessed with different devices via a web browser, with remote maintenance and the highest cyber security. The BSTL 350-88 is a fantastic new addition and I believe will be one of our best ever sellers.”
Bruderer UK, which is currently building a new 48,000ft2
factory and showroom in Telford, is also launching a second new model at MACH 2024
. It will use the major industrial event to introduce the BSTA 710-220 to the UK, a press that is all about delivering more space for complex stamping tools with the longest bed length (2.2m) of its type in the world.
With automatic stroke adjustment and various options, such as different stroke lengths, shut heights and press force monitoring, the machine can be configured for individual customer requirements and is increasingly suitable for the emerging electrification world. Precision engineering and the unique Bruderer lever system ensures that the press is a reliable, long-lasting investment.
Mr Haller concluded: “Customers are looking for suppliers who can offer a full turnkey package and this is where we really excel. We can meet with clients, look at their product/production issue and come up with a solution that will deliver the performance and quality they require — often exceeding it in the process.
“Our presses will be at the cornerstone of that approach and are complemented by our extensive knowledge and access to equipment including decoilers, servo feeders, tool monitoring, die handling, press and tool monitoring and welding technologies.”
