Schuler Holds Tech Day in Puebla

New developments such as the servo press MSP 400 and the process monitoring system show the benefits of networked forming technology

Canton, Michigan – Schuler has developed solutions for the digitization and networking of forming technology with the new servo press MSP 400 or the process monitoring system for hot stamping systems. They are part of the “Smart Press Shop,” Schuler’s answer to Industry 4.0 (“Industrial Internet of Things”, IIoT). The main benefits for press operators have now been experienced by the visitors at Schuler’s Tech Day at the end of November in Puebla.

“The digital transformation of the press shop is already well underway,” says Carlos Valdés, CEO of Schuler in Mexico: “Not only the major car manufacturers, but also medium-sized suppliers can use the Smart Press Shop for more efficient production and fewer rejected parts. Thus, Schuler is putting forming technology on the fast track to the digital future.”

In the morning, Schuler celebrated their fourth group of apprentices completing their vocational training at the Cedual Training Center. The 16 industrial engineers and toolmakers prepared themselves for their job with theoretical and practical phases based on the German model. The training center, which Schuler founded in 2012, is equipped with a teaching workshop as well as an audiovisual lecture theater and three classrooms.

Schuler Installs First Laser Blanking Line for Asia

Ansteel orders system with two cutting heads to process steel and aluminum coils for the automotive industry

Chinese steel maker Ansteel has ordered the first Schuler laser blanking line for Asia.

Canton, Michigan – Ansteel is one of the largest steel producers worldwide and also known as the “cradle of steel industry” in China which contributed significantly to the rapid economic growth of the People’s Republic. Now, the company will also be the first Schuler customer in Asia to install a laser blanking line. This is also the first system worldwide that features two cutting heads for the processing of coil material with a width of up to 1,880 mm (74”).

Laser cutting systems for blanking lines have proven their reliability and high output in the series production of outer body parts already in Europe – another one will be delivered to the U.S – and are particularly suitable for production processes with frequent product changes, since no dies are needed. Schuler’s innovative DynamicFlow Technology enables a highly dynamic cutting process and high strip speeds for the coil material which is continuously moving forward. This process leads to an increased output and higher system availability, while also ensuring gentle transport of sensitive materials such as aluminum.

The new Laser Blanking Line 2.18 has two powerful cutting heads and can be used to produce blanks for various components made of coil material with a width up to 1,880 mm (74”). It is a cost-optimized alternative to the Laser Blanking Line 3.21 with three cutting heads, which is particularly suitable for the efficient production of outer skin blanks with a coil width of up to 2,150 mm (84”). It provides a wide range of options to optimally adapt the system to customer needs and has been successfully in production for several years now.

Striking Begins for New Ten Euro Collector’s Coin

In addition to the five euro coins with a polymer ring, machines from the Schuler Group will now also be used to produce similar ten euro coins

Canton, Michigan – Today marks the start of production for a new ten euro collector’s coin featuring a colorless polymer ring at the Karlsruhe Mint of the State Mints of Baden-Wuerttemberg in Germany. The first coins were officially struck in a ceremony attended by Baden-Wuerttemberg’s Finance Minister, Edith Sitzmann. These “tri-material” coins are produced on a joining machine, which connects the polymer ring to the metallic core and outer metallic ring, and on minting presses from the Schuler Group.

The front face shows a paraglider set in a mountainous landscape, while the back face includes an eagle, an inscription reading “Bundesrepublik Deutschland” (Federal Republic of Germany), and the twelve stars of Europe. The 9.7-gram coin is the first issue of what is to be a three-part series entitled “Air Moves.” It will be available in the two mint qualities “uncirculated” and “proof” starting in the spring of 2019.

Autumn of the coming year will then see the arrival of the next edition of the five euro collector’s coin. This issue, which will feature a green polymer ring, will also be produced using Schuler technology. The front face will depict a European hare representing the temperate latitudes in the “Climate Zones of the Earth” series. The coins are extremely popular among collectors and non-collectors alike.

Additional information will be available at the Technical Forum held on January 31, 2019 in Berlin before the official opening of the World Money Fair.

Major Automotive Supplier Expands Its Market with Schuler Presses

Huissel utilizes MSP servo presses for high production of complex stampings 

Canton, Michigan – Huissel, well-known as a reliable die and sheet metal part supplier for the European automotive and supplier industry, looked to Schuler presses to help expand their market.

Thanks to a digital twin, the commissioning of the new press is also considerably faster.Huissel wanted to complete the die manufacturing process chain in Frankenthal, Germany, and the related delivery of sheet metal parts at the Enkenbach-Alsenborn site for its product line. According to the two managing directors, Peter Busalt and Gerald Schug, these market potentials could not be achieved with the existing machinery. A system was needed that would permit economical manufacturing of medium and high lot sizes while enabling easy operation. Huissel chose the Schuler MSP 800; the latest expansion of the newly developed servo press series of Schuler.

“We examined suppliers from Spain and Italy to Germany,” says Peter Busalt. “But only the MSP series from Schuler currently has the functions we need.” Gerald Schug adds, “The ease of operability of the machine was important for us, for example, because this aspect helps even inexperienced employees quickly achieve good results in regard to taking advantage of the full potential of the servo press.”

With the MSP 800, Schuler has now sold the strongest machine in the series.Operators can select from predefined movement curves or program them freely. A fixed component of the control system is the Smart Assist software from Schuler, which performs the setup procedure for the dies step by step – another advantage for Gerald Schug: “In this way, we can shorten the usual launch of production to a fraction of the previous time.”

The commissioning of the new press is also considerably faster thanks to a digital twin. Here, the virtual system model is connected to the real control system with the machine and system visualization system. All functions of the MSP 800 can be simulated on the computer in this manner. The functionality and operation of the system can therefore be tested and trained on the real machine.

Huissel will set up a new building in its Enkenbach-Alsenborn factory for the MSP 800. As a whole, this project is the largest single investment in the company’s 100-year history. Huissel also intends to attach dies that it has manufactured in its Frankenthal factory 25 miles away to the new servo press. The tie rod structure of the MSP 800, which offers particularly high rigidity, also guarantees the quality of the parts production.

Schuler presented the MSP 400, a smaller version of the MSP 800, to the general public at the EuroBLECH trade fair in Hanover for the first time. The smallest members of the group, the single-rod automatic blanking press CSP 100 and the double-rod automatic blanking press MSP 200, are already in use at stamping companies. What all these presses have in common is the innovative knuckle-joint drive with highly dynamic servo motors and additional smart functions, such as condition monitoring.

Schuler is currently in development and will soon offer a press force of 1,250 tons.
