TaxSmall Business Jobs & Credit Act of 2010-2011 Reduces Tax Liability

By Dave Goose, Manufacturer's Capital

The newly signed Small Business Jobs and Credit Act (HR 5279) doubles the Section 179 deduction to $500K and re-instates the 50% bonus depreciation!

What can the Small Business Jobs and Credit Act do for your company?  
  • Significantly reduces your tax liability!  It doubled the Section 179 deduction from $250K to $500K, lifted the phase-out cap from $800k to $2MM.  This is available in 2010 and through 2011.
  • The Act also re-instated the 50% Bonus Depreciation.  However the 50% Bonus Depreciation ends 12/31/2010. To capitalize on this, order machines now. They must be in place by 12/31/2010 and many builders have three to four month lead times.
  • Get Uncle Sam to help pay for your income-producing equipment!
  • Depending on your tax bracket and loan or lease term, the savings could cover up to 18 months of payments on your loan or finance lease. 
 How does the Section 179 deduction benefit your company?
  • Section 179 allows businesses that spend less than $2,000,000 a year on qualified equipment to write-off up to $500,000 in 2010 and through 2011.
  • In addition to the 179 deduction, the remaining balance not written off then qualifies for an additional write-off of half of the remaining balance.  Companies can then deduct their Standard Depreciation (usually over 7 years) on the adjusted basis after the Section 179 deduction and bonus depreciation deduction.  Click here to continue reading.

Servo Drive Motorum Evolves to a New Level
Functionality, Power & Speed


At Muratec's Fabtech booth (#2607), you will see new technology and new equipment.  Murata will have a 50' by 60' booth with three machines to include two new models, the Motorum 2048ST and the M2044UT-T, along with our standard M2558T.                                                                                                  


Motorum 2048ST
The new Motorum 2048ST fills a void in our product line left by the Motorum 2048LT.  The ST has a     4' x 8' table, 28 station turret in the 22 ton range.  This machine is a more economical choice, but includes all the latest technologies.  The servo-controlled ram allows use of the latest tooling to conveniently add more value to your parts.
Motorum 2044UT-T

The new M2044UT-T is a spring-tooled machine on a 4' x 4' table that competes with any 4' x 4' thick tooling machine in the 22 ton range.  This machine has a more compact configuration, but still provides a major punch with its 46 station turret including four auto index stations.  It also uses the latest punching technologies with its patented servo-controlled ram mechanism.
Motorum 2558T

The Motorum 2558T also has a 46 station turret with four indexable stations. The single piece frame has  the economical electric servo drive punching system with 27.5 tons of force. The rack and pinion table drive proves the power and speed to position a 5' by 8' sheet without repositioning. Automation options can be easily added to expand productivity and through-put.

Deburr Tool

By Don Angel, Applications Engineer

Issue:  You have internal and external edges of your punched parts that require secondary processing for deburring.  This adds a lot of non-value added handling and exposure to damage or loss of the parts.


Solution:  Use your turret punch press to deburr the part.  Murata Machinery USA provides a Deburr Tool that will eliminate the burr created by punching on the lower side of your part. Our turrets allow you to bring the punch side of this tool down onto the material. You will program the tool to roll along the edge of the part and the burr is rolled back into the material leaving a smooth edge.

The Good Old Days of Metal Fabrication

Did you see our own Dennis Niesborella was one of the individuals featured in the September issue of The Fabricator?   

As The Fabricator turns 40 this year they take a look
back at the early days of metal fabrication and the
interaction between people and machines. 

In the article, Dennis Niesborella, a 37 year veteran at Murata, gives insights on his early career, how the industry has progressed and how today's fabricator still needs a good knowledge of basic fundamentals.

It was great having our Service Engineers in Charlotte recently for a service meeting.  We don't get to see them very often because they are always in the field taking care of customers.

As always, thank you for reading this issue of Murata News.
