Schuler presents fully networked stamping press
by Hans Diederichs
Schuler will show the new machine at the Blechexpo trade fair from November 5 to 8, 2019 in Stuttgart (Hall 8, Stand 8511) for the first time.
Thanks to additional integrated sensors, the condition of the MC 125 can be fully monitored at all times. This ensures the productivity of the stamping machine and can prevent unplanned shutdowns. Visitors to the Schuler stand at Blechexpo can experience these functionalities on their mobile devices themselves.
But not only the control, but also the mechanics of the stamping machine has received an update: Schuler has now implemented the sliding guide via prestressed, play-free roller guides. They not only guarantee the necessary precision, for example for components with a high cutting accuracy, but are also low-maintenance.
The rigid welded construction ensures high die service life thanks to its low bed deflection. The transverse shafts turning in opposite directions compensate for the lateral rotation forces.
The stamping presses of the MC series with a press force of up to 500 tons are suitable for the production of formed sheet metal parts not only for the automotive, commercial vehicle and supplier industries, but also for the construction ancillary industry, the household appliance industry, the electrical and electronics industry. Short changeover times can be achieved by fully automatic and programmable stroke and slide adjustment. The bed size ranges from 1,400 by 1,000 mm for the MC 125 up to 3,000 by 1,400 mm for the MC 500.
Right on site, visitors can learn about the right dies for stamping machines from Schuler: company subsidiary and die making specialist Aweba exhibits its products and services at the stand, too. Vögtle – also a member of the Schuler Group – can be found with its entire portfolio of used presses, retrofits and services in the neighboring hall 9 on stand 9411.
