75th logo
Murata Forming Division Celebrates its 75th Anniversary
Murata Machinery USA, Inc., is celebrating its 75th year as a world leader in sheet metal forming technology. Murata is a pioneer in the sheet metal forming industry, with innovations dating back to the first turret punch press without a center post, the R2.
The R2 was designed in 1932 and manufactured for the market by the Wiedemann Machine Company in 1934.  Over the decades, manufacturers turned to the company to increase parts production and improve production methodologies, even as it changed hands to The Warner & Swasey Company in 1964 and Murata Machinery Ltd. in 1989.

Tapping Tool
Adding Value to Your Parts  -  Tapping
By:  Don Angel, Applications Engineer
An Issue:
 Are you currently performing secondary operations on your parts to tap holes or add pemserts?
A Solution: Use your turret punch press to tap holes faster, eliminate additional parts handling and reduce opportunities for parts damage. Challenged with goals to improve the fabricating process, our customers are looking for innovative methods to cut overhead and time/dollar consuming secondary operations. Many are finding that the time taken away from punching holes to add tapping operations in the turret punch press is more than an even trade.
Available from d/k technologies and Wilson Tool, is an in-turret tapping tool for our Motorum, Vectrum and Magnum line of machines. Tools are available for both the Wiedemann 114 and thick turret style turrets. These tools use roll type taps. The tapping units are durable, only basic maintenance is required and taps are easily replaced.
