Sheet Metal Machinery
Metalworking technologies supporting the modern industry from architecture to IT devices.
The roots of the sheet metal machinery department can be traced back to 1970, when we joined up with the Wiedemann Division of The Warner & Swasey Company; which was established in Philadelphia, USA in 1916, and released the world’s first CNC turret punch press. After that, we have pursued product development and released new products one after another, including plasma ark combined machines and laser combined machines, and also construction of large-scale flexible manufacturing systems.(Wiedemann still exists today as Murata Machinery USA.) Sheet-metal-processed products realize value by going through many subsequent processes of not only punching, bending and other machining, but also welding and assembly. Efficient creation of this value requires a manufacturing perspective with all processes taken into consideration. We develop processing machines and systems based on such a perspective, and also offer recommendations for total optimization of machining processes, including reviews of processes and methods, while sharing customer concerns. Through the pursuit of total optimization, we will continue to contribute to customers’ value creation.
