Ute Schlieder Metallwarenfabrik GmbH metalworks in Zöblitz, a town district of Marienberg near the German city of Chemnitz, has been forming metal for 140 years. Now, the company is equipping itself for the future—and purchased a fully networked MSP 400 servo press from Schuler as part of the process. The company uses the machine's smart features to keep an eye on the main drives, the temperature and press force data, and to optimize the movement curves.
For processes like stamping, forming, blanking, embossing, bending or drawing, operators can also choose from preprogrammed curves. With the servo technology, it was possible to increase stroke rates by 15 to 20 percent in some areas. Schuler also supplied the coil line, which is perfectly tuned to work with the system and is able to keep pace with the high production rate.
