Product Details Supplier Info More products

From 1-4 December 2009, the Schuler Group will be presenting its entire range of products and services at the Blechexpo fair in Stuttgart, Germany, which is dedicated to sheet metalforming.

Visitors to hall 8, stand 8206 will be informed about the latest developments in equipment and processes under the heading ‘Accepting challenges – providing answers’.

The Schuler Group will be focusing in particular on its range of products and services for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the metalforming industry.

As a systems supplier, Schuler offers tailored turnkey solutions for a number of sectors and application fields – from press technology and the respective automation solutions to individualised customer services.

‘At the Blechexpo fair, we aim to demonstrate that we can also provide turnkey system solutions for SMEs tailored exactly to customer needs,’ said board of management member Dr Markus Ernst, responsible for standard presses in Schuler’s Forming Systems business segment.

‘Criteria such as part quality, strength, economic efficiency, flexibility, energy efficiency, future proofing, and service all play an important role in this context,’ he added.

Schuler’s fair stand will be divided into various topic areas.

The area dedicated to automatic blanking and forming presses, for example, features a servo press produced by the Group’s Swiss subsidiary Beutler Nova.

The transverse shaft machine has a press force of 1250kN (tonf) and is equipped with Schuler’s automation solutions: the C-range coil line, a Schuler Power Feed roll feed unit and a AT1-type three-axis transfer system.

The C-range generation of coil lines rounds out Schuler Automation’s product spectrum for smaller coil widths of 300mm to 800mm and lower tonnage ratings of three to 8 tonnes.

The Schuler Group offers fair visitors a hands-on metalforming experience: the transfer system of the Beutler Nova press will be transporting chocolate bars that visitors can pluck directly out of the machine.

With the aid of a live transmission from Schuler’s headquarters in Goeppingen, visitors will be able to see the performance of a 2500kN (tonf) press with Servodirekt technology on screen and adjust the numerous settings of the slide kinematics themselves via a data connection.

Visitors to Schuler’s Hot Stamping Center of Excellence will find information on integrated press, die and automation solutions.

The hot-stamping process guarantees high strength and reduced weight for the production of safety components.

The PCH (pressure controlled hardening) process developed by Schuler enables economic mass manufacturing of hot-stamped parts and opens up a host of possibilities for users.

The field of high-speed presses/blanking technology and notching presses/notching cells is of particular interest to users in the field of energy technology and manufacturers of hybrid drives.

Schuler experts will be on hand to answer all questions concerning lines for the production of electric motor laminations.

The stand’s Center of Excellence for Hydraulic Presses provides information on the entire range of hydraulic presses – from standard presses with small capacities to large-scale presses and automated press lines.

Schuler SMG in Waghaeusel, Germany, is the group’s specialist for realising efficient manufacturing solutions with the latest hydraulic press technology for a wide application spectrum.

Visitors will also be informed about Schuler’s large-scale mechanical presses and fully automated press lines with Servodirekt technology, as used in the automotive industry.

The numerous components offered by Schuler Automation for press lines – such as blankloaders, washing units, Crossbar Robots and end-of-line products – round out this area.
