For sheet metal fabricators, Murata Machinery USA, Inc. has a long history of revolutionary manufacturing for process integration. The story dates back to 1934 when Theodore Wiedemann designed, manufactured and marketed the Wiedematic, the first turret punch press without a center post. Through the years, many innovations to the original turret punch press design have evolved. With Murata’s purchase of the Wiedemann line in 1989, a new era of sheet metal fabrication machines was introduced to the world, including the first electric punch drive, the first automatic turret changing punch press system and pick and place loading / sorting automation. Today, Murata Machinery USA offers the latest in turret punch press technology and reliability in the sheet metal fabrication industry with our Motorum line. Our experience is built into every machine - Reliability By Design.
