GTMA SUPPLIERS AT MACH

Metrology specialist Mahr is returning to

MACH after a lengthy break and will be

marking its return with a display of products from

across its range, including two

innovative new products.

They are in the MarSurf CWM 100 optical

measuring system and the MarShaft series

of optical shaft measuring machines.

The MarSurf CWM 100 is an optical surface

measuring unit. These units are leading the

way in optical metrology by combining confocal microscopy

with white light interferometry.

These two measurement methods cannot be used independently on all materials

and surface structures, but in combination

almost all technical and optical surfaces can

be reliably and highly accurately measured.

The MarShaft SCOPE Plus is a fully automatic, tactile and optical measuring unit for

turned parts. This new unit features a precision roundness

measuring axis (C), a vertical measuring axis (Z) and a horizontal

measuring axis (X) all of which are controlled

by Mahr's powerful MarWin

EasyShaft software. This highly versatile

and powerful measuring tool is easy to use

and is ruggedized for shop floor use.

The full range of Mahr equipment will be on

its stand.

TWO INNOVATIVE PRODUCTS

MEASURE UP FOR A MACH RETURN

GTMA supplier Bruderer UK has agreed

a £500,000 deal that will see it deliver a

'world first' to the South Coast in 2014.

The press manufacturer will supply a highperformance automatic stamping press

to

electronic component specialist Harwin to

help it increase efficiencies and attack new

opportunities in aerospace, instrumentation

and industrial markets.

Bruderer, who is at MACH, has built on a 30-

year relationship with the Portsmouth firm to

secure the order for a new BSTA 280-75

with a BSV-75 high-speed servo feeder.

The world first comes from the integration

of a planetary gearbox into the shaft of the

main motor, which will allow Harwin's engineers to have full control

of tooling development to produce

test runs of new products.

Bruderer Managing Director Adrian Haller

said: "This is a really exciting project and

we're delighted to bring new machine technology to the UK, which will help a forward

looking manufacturer expand and create

jobs.

"We listened to what Harwin wanted and,

by working with experts at our parent company in Switzerland, came up with a solution

that met their exact requirements.

The

company will benefit from a high-speed

press that offers great versatility by catering

for both the development of new tools and

full production."

Paul McGuinness, Operations Director at

Harwin, commented: "This new technology

basically removes the need for a separate

development press, as we can put new

tools through at the lowest stroke rate and

at full press capacity - allowing us to identify any issues before

flicking a switch on full

production.

"There are lots of advantages…increased efficiency,

reduced costs, less space required

and even gains in terms of logistics since

tools have to be transported less.

"We specialise in high reliability connectors

and innovative PCB hardware and are continually investing in our new product

development programme.

This new acquisition

will help us develop the next generation of

connectors and in particular our EZBoardWare

range."

Bruderer's UK operation has been working

with Harwin for over three decades and has

been in discussion with the manufacturing

team to develop the innovative solution for

many months. The deal could prove to be

the catalyst for a record year for the punching technology specialist, with the management

team keen to build on annual sales of

£3million in 2013.

Investment in a range of new presses coincides with greater

confidence in the manufacturing sector,

with automotive, aerospace,

electronics and medical all benefitting from

increased funding towards capital machinery.

Adrian concluded: "The high-speed press,

servo feeder and planetary gearbox 'world

first' will be unveiled to a global audience at

MACH."
