Schuler to exhibit networked first C-framed press at BlechexpoSchuler will be exhibiting a fully networked C-frame press at the Blechexpo trade fair in October

At the Blechexpo trade show taking place in Stuttgart from 26-29 October, Schuler will present a networked C-frame press in a world first. The company first unveiled its ‘Digital Suite’ solutions for networking forming technology at the start of the year.

At the exhibition, visitors will be able see for themselves the practical benefits of this technology on a CFL 160 C-frame press which will be demonstrated on Stand 8306 in Hall 8. In addition, delegates will see how press downtimes can be quickly resolved and service breaks minimised with ‘Schuler Connect’.

Frank Klingemann, Schuler managing director, who heads the industry division, said: “Schuler is the first press manufacturer to offer fully networked C-frame presses. This means that we have now digitised almost our entire product range.”

Service managing director Torsten Petrick added: “However, operators who want to prepare for the Industrial Internet of Things do not necessarily have to replace their presses as we also offer many solutions that can be retrofitted to existing systems. 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 fibre-reinforced plastics (composites).

For many applications, Aweba Werkzeugbau GmbH 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 moulds for electric motors or battery housings.
