Brandauer looks to put Southern Manufacturing & Electronics under the Micron
A leading stamping and presswork specialist is proving that the best things in manufacturing come in small packages. Brandauer has invested heavily in new high-speed presses, ancillaries, grinding machines and the latest laser inspection equipment for the production of stamped metal components.
This kind of investment ensures the accuracy they’re renowned for, with precise measurements that are accurate to a tolerance of 20 microns. This kind of accuracy is paramount when you’re making parts for the next generation electric engine or military drone, where inconsistencies have serious consequences. It’s projects like these where Brandauer has recently become more involved, thanks to the demand for electrical steel laminations.
Brandauer’s ‘What is a Micron’ video will be on display at stand E190, capitalising on this trend and offering visitors at Southern Manufacturing & Electronics an in-depth look into the technical aspects of precision metal stamping.
“A human hair is 50 microns thick so that gives you an idea of the parameters we are working towards,” commented Graham Allison, Technical Sales Manager at Brandauer. “Our customers are taking on more technical projects and these require small parts, often in very difficult materials to process.
He continued: “We are perfectly set up to handle these and we recently secured several major contracts in the UK, Europe and the USA.”
The video and Brandauer’s experts on stand E190 will take visitors through the importance of producing to exact tolerances, the materials involved and the end applications. Graham concluded: “We’ll also be showcasing EloPin press-fit technology, which allows the solderless connection of terminal pins to a PCB. The aim is to produce millions of components every year for customers involved in automotive electronics and those looking for increased efficiency and robustness in interconnects.”
