Murata Machinery USA, Inc., a world leader in the manufacturing and design of highly productive metal fabrication machinery and automation, has introduced the latest in its Motorum line of turret punch presses. The Motorum M2048TS incorporates a CNC servo motor-driven turret punch press with a new ram drive that combines high-speed punching, exceptional forming operations and reduced noise.
