Set to have its biggest ever presence at MACH later this year, Bruderer is promising to unveil a UK first in high performance stamping. The company is showcasing its BSTA 410-110, a new high-speed press, for the first time ever in this country.

Combining the dynamics of its well-proven BSTA 280 with the performance of a BSTA 510, the new machine boasts a stroke speed of 1,600 per minute and a tool loading area of 1,100 mm.

Says Adrian Haller, managing director of Bruderer UK: “There has been a lot of interest in the 40 tonne range and the BSTA 410-110 addresses this demand, offering speed, precision and extra bed length capacity. It’s an irresistible combination, especially when you add in the latest high speed precision servo feeder technology we can provide.”

He adds: “Priced at approximately £350,000, it represents great value for money and we expect to sell at least three of these machines in the UK this year.

“There will be live demonstrations of the high speed press during the big unveil on Tuesday April 12 at 11 am, featuring tooling from precision component manufacturer Fibro.”

In addition to the BSTA 410-110, Bruderer is promoting its collaboration with Zani presses, which sees it provide presses from 200 tonne to 1,000 tonne, together with service and parts support for the UK and Ireland.

A number of working displays will also be exhibited, including innovations for shopfloor data collection to support overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), press and press tool protection systems and a section on Biegema, formally known as Finzer and a specialist in bending and forming of complicated parts.

The latest developments in lubrication systems, mould tool rotators, test machines, laser and inkjet systems, will also be on show, not to mention a host of coil handling and servo feeding solutions, together with state-of-the-art welding of virgin and stamped strip.

Haller adds: “We’ll have experts from all areas of the business on hand to meet with delegates and discuss their high-speed press and press shop requirements."

Bruderer UK enjoyed significant growth in 2015, seeing sales pass the £3.5 million mark with the potential to increase even further over the next twelve months. The Swiss-owned company, who manufactures presses ranging from 180 up to 2,500 kN, boasts a total of 11 divisions with six competence centres across the world.
