International sheet metal review reports on the new Boschert Multipunch 4020

Introducing BOSCHERT: The expert for sheet-metal working and winding technology

Lörrach-Hauingen, Germany – BOSCHERT was founded in 1946 by Ludwig Boschert. In 1973, the company started to manufacture notching machines. The company remained in the hands of the Boschert family until 1976 when it was taken over by Udo Kunz who started to develop and expand the range of sheet-metal working machines, with the result that the first BOSCHERT punching machine was launched on the market in 1978. In 1989, Udo handed over management of the company to his son Peter Kunz. This was the start of an unrivaled success story that is still continuing today. A whole series of new machines were developed: In 1991, the first CNC punching machine with clamping jaws; in 1998, the first punching machine with rotation; in 2001, the first copper punching machine; and in 2002, the first BOSCHERT punching machine with the Revotool rotation index.


3 in 1 – For the flexible machining of copper

With its three stations for punching, bending and cutting, BOSCHERT's CU-FLEX compact copper machining center permits the end-to-end machining of copper as well as many other operations.

Lörrach-Hauingen, Germany – The mechanical machining of copper and other materials using cutting, punching and forming tools demands special expertise. In particular, the machining of copper rails, for example for equipping electrical systems and switching cabinets, constantly represents a considerable challenge for manufacturers and suppliers. To allow it to offer these customers a high-performance, top-quality solution, the specialist for end-to-end sheet metal machining BOSCHERT long ago developed its CU-PROFI series of machines for the flexible handling of copper and aluminum rails. These machines are in use for an enormous range of applications worldwide. They excel thanks to their outstanding precision, their compact and exceptionally robust construction, long service life and ease of use.


World first from BOSCHERT: FiberLaser in compact design

Workpiece movement in the X-direction and laser head movement in the Y-direction ensure better dynamics, more application flexibility and high precision in an extremely compact design.

By launching the manufacture of a fiber laser machine, BOSCHERT GmbH & Co. KG is setting a further milestone in the expansion of its delivery program. With experience gathered from more than 4,000 punch, punch-plasma and punch-laser-machines installed worldwide, the sheet-metal processing specialist has developed a solution in compact design which is distinguished by a whole range of practical advantages. The blank sheet is moved in the X-direction with travelling clamping jaws on the roller table, while the “flying” laser head travels in the Y-axis.


An efficient, high-quality approach to craftwork

Using BOSCHERT’s Ergo Cut flatbed plasma cutting machine, the creative and innovative artisanal metalworking shop Peter Hiltebrand AG is able to manufacture parts efficiently and economically.

Craftwork is driven, on the one hand, by creativity and good ideas and, on the other, by flexibility and a capacity for innovation. Equally important are craftsmanship and reliable technology and, last but not least, well-trained, enthusiastic people – like Peter Hiltebrand, founder and head manager of the renowned Peter Hiltebrand Kunstschlosserei AG in the Swiss town of Höri. All these qualities can be found in Peter as well as in his son Peter René and, finally, in his grandson Peter Michael. They are also the defining character of this family business, which now numbers ten employees. In 1972, Peter Hiltebrand founded the company as a traditional village metalworking shop. The one-man firm, which was initially mostly active in the field of jobbing and contract work, soon made a name for itself by manufacturing playground equipment. With the growing need of many customers for greater security, Peter Hiltebrand then had the idea of combining the security function of a window grille with the decorative design of each individual building. On this basis, he developed a wide product range comprising, for example, window grilles, decorative grilles, fences, railings and gates. When his son Peter René joined the company, Hiltebrand extended his portfolio to include, for example, house signs, mailboxes, flower stands and fireplace accessories. At the same time, the company invested in machines, equipment and premises.
