The Schuler MC 125 stamping press has been completely redesigned to offer smart functions. A debut appearance for the fully networked machine is planned to take place at the Blechexpo trade fair (5-8 November, Stuttgart) on stand 8511 (hall 8).
As a result of additional integrated sensors, the status of MC 125 can be monitored at all times. This capability ensures the productivity of the machine and prevents unplanned shutdowns. Visitors to the Schuler stand at Blechexpo can experience these functionalities for themselves using their mobile devices.
The mechanics of the stamping machine have also been updated. For instance, Schuler has now implemented pre-stressed, play-free roller guides. The guides not only guarantee the necessary precision, but are low maintenance. A rigid welded construction ensures long service life of the die thanks to its low bed deflection, while the transverse shafts turning in opposite directions compensate for lateral rotation forces.
Presses of the MC series (with a press force of up to 500 tonnes) are suitable for the production of formed sheet-metal parts, not only for the automotive, commercial vehicle and supplier industries, but for the construction ancillary sector, the household appliance industry, and the electrical and electronics sector. Short changeover times can be achieved by fully automatic and programmable stroke and slide adjustment. Bed size ranges
from 1400 x 1000 mm for the MC 125, up to 3000 x 1400 mm for the MC 500.
