In the beginning of this year, Schuler presented its “Digital Suite” solutions for networking forming technology. At the Blechexpo trade show from October 26 to 29 in Stuttgart, users can see for themselves the practical benefits of this technology on the example of a C-frame press type CFL 160.
“Schuler is the first press manufacturer to also offer fully networked C-frame presses,” clarifies Managing Director Frank Klingemann, who heads the Industry Division. “This means that we have now digitised almost our entire product range.” However, operators who want to prepare for the Industrial Internet of Things do not necessarily have to replace their presses: “We also offer many solutions that can be retrofitted for existing systems,” adds Service Managing Director Torsten Petrick. “They help with the start of production, ongoing operation, and maintenance.”
Schuler will also be showcasing its mechanical transfer presses, which are available both with and without servo drives, and its hydraulic lines for the production of parts for lightweight automotive construction – be it with hot stamping, hydroforming or fiber-reinforced plastics (composites). For many applications, Aweba provides the appropriate dies. The Schuler subsidiary also supports its customers from the automotive and supplier industries in the transition to e-mobility: with dies and die casting molds for electric motors or battery housings.
