A leading specialist in the design and manufacture of one-off and low-volume parts has installed three high-specification machines from TRUMPF, including a five-axis TruLaser Cell 7020 fiber.
Birmingham Prototypes Ltd (BPL) has located all three machines at its new 20,000 sq ft facility in Birmingham, where they are helping the company keep pace with an expanding order book for sectors such as automotive and aerospace.
BPL has earned a market reputation for providing a one-stop-shop service, taking parts from CAD through to final inspected products. It has invested heavily in its future, utilising technologies that include CADCAM suites, presses, CNC machining centres and the latest laser scanning inspection equipment. However, to meet ongoing customer demand, the company wanted more capacity for sheet-metal engineering and fabrication projects at its new facility.
“We’ve enjoyed 15 years of growth at Birmingham Prototypes and now have 20 employees,” states the company’s Operations Director. “Moving in 2019 to our new building with 24/7 operating capacity is a reflection of our progress. We have witnessed increasing demand from our customer base and we are determined to grow with it.”
