New press machine makes a huge difference for the UK market

2016-08-25 It’s pleasing to see an investment pay off. A couple of months ago Lesjöfors company European Springs & Pressings LTD in London acquired a new and revolutionary machine, the Bruderer BSTA 500-110B. This press allows production of more than 1100 stampings per minute, which means there will be many thousand stamping just in one hour. After only a few months the result has already increased sales and created new jobs.

The Bruderer BSTA 500-110B is said to be one of the world's most advanced high-speed precision presses. The machine is designed by Swiss engineers and has innovative systems and advantages. It is an amazing piece of machinery, as it is able to produce between 100 and 1120 stampings per minute. But this is one amazing aspect of the machine out of many. The Bruderer BSTA 500-110B is operated through a press control that is governed by a computer. This, along with a touch screen interface, offers the operator a logic overview of all process data that is relevant.

Because of the unique lever system of the Bruderer BSTA 500-110B, it means that the load from the stamping operation is distributed through the mechanism. This means that, along with a precise mass counterbalancing system, the absolute minimum clearances in all bearing and oil lubrication play very important roles in the maintenance, high precision and long life of the machine.

Increase in both sales and personnel
The introduction of the Bruderer BSTA 500-110B press has definitely paid off and it has shaped European Springs as a company.

“We are very pleased with our new machine. In 2016 alone, because of the Bruderer investment, European Springs has grown by a factor of 10% and has also created new jobs. Across the European Spring sites in London, Cornwall and Leeds, sales have increased up to £16m and the workforce has increased to 170 employees”, says Stuart McSheehy, MD at European Springs in London.
