A Birmingham metal pressings specialist is heading to Southern Manufacturing in February (5th to 7th) in a bid to build on its reputation as a world leader in electrical steel lamination manufacture.

The company can manufacture loose or reeled stampings, bonded or interlock laminations, t-segments and ultra-thin components from its 45,000 sq ft world class facility in the heart of the West Midlands.

“Our expertise has even stretched to providing a 1mm diameter micro push connector for a life protection radar system” explained Graham Allison, Technical Sales Manager at Brandauer.

“This groundbreaking product is used in life saving defence and sensing systems globally and we have played a crucial role in making it a reality.

“It’s stories like this that we are looking to tell at Southern Manufacturing, a show that has proven hugely successful for us in the past. We’ll have our technical experts on hand to discuss your electrical steel lamination requirements, as well as a number of applications where our components are being used.”

Brandauer will also be displaying EloPin®, a groundbreaking press-fit product that allows the solderless connection of terminal pins to a PCB.

Although easy to insert, it is designed to have a high push-out force; this ensures high mechanical stability and a secure, gas-tight connection. It also has high elastic recovery to prevent accidental breakage.

Typical applications include engine compartment accessories, overmoulded hybrid parts, vehicle comfort systems, driver assistance technology, in-vehicle network and infotainment systems.

Graham concluded: “We have just sealed a near £1m order for EloPin® and are currently working through a number of quotes to supply customers in five different sectors, who also want to take advantage of this technology.”
