Schuler installed two forging lines, including the dies and furnaces, in China. The screw press and the crank press forge aluminum chassis parts fully automatically. Screw presses from Schuler feature a press force of 250-28,000 tons. The water-cooled servo direct drive transmits the torque of the motor without losses and offers a high level of precision, operational reliability and economy. The 750- to 16,000-ton crank press is suited for mass production. Depending on the specific requirements, the press frame and drive system are designed for high manufacturing precision and high production rates.
Installation was made possible during a pandemic by remote maintenance and virtual commissioning, which allowed all functions to be simulated in advance on the computer and adapted to the customer's needs.
The production data of both lines can be accessed via the mySchuler portal from anywhere and at any time. The Production Monitor displays the operating status and the current stroke rate; the Press Force Monitor provides information about the load on the machine and die; Drive Analytics enables operators to monitor the main drives; and Cooling Analytics allows them to monitor the cooling circuits.
