Product focus Schuler to unveil its latest MC 125 stamping press
Schuler will be showcasing its new machine – the MC 125 stamping press for the first time to the industry at the upcoming Blechexpo trade fair in Stuttgart, Germany. The stamping press has been created in line with the rise of digitalisation in medium-sized companies.
Headquartered in Germany, Schuler is one of the major players that produce presses for the manufacturing industry. The company introduces many new innovations from time to time in order to meet the changing demands of its customers. For instance, with digitalisation and the advent of Industry 4.0 in today’s factories, there is a greater need for machines to be connected with each other. Schuler has dedicatedly tracked this market trend and has come up with unique solutions which it plans to showcase at the soon to be held global sheet metal working trade fair, Blechexpo in Germany.
The MC 125 stamping press
The latest MC 125 stamping press has been redesigned and now offers various smart functions to medium-sized companies that are keen on adopting industrial internet of things (IIoT) in their processes. The stamping press is also equipped with additional integrated sensors which help one to monitor the press 24*7. This process ensures that production is not compromised and at the same time it also avoids unplanned downtime.
Precision and low maintenance
In addition to this, the mechanics of the MC 125 has also been improved by the incorporation of a sliding guide via prestressed, play-free roller guides. Schuler states that this not only guarantees the necessary precision, for example for components with a high cutting accuracy, but is also low-maintenance. It is interesting to note that high die service life can be achieved owing to the low bed deflection of the rigid welded construction. The transverse shafts turning in opposite directions compensate for the lateral rotation forces.
Suitable for diverse industries
The MC 125 along with other stamping presses in the MC series with a press force of up to 500 tonnes can be most ideally used for the production of formed sheet metal parts across diverse industries such as automotive, commercial vehicle, supplier industries, construction ancillary industry, household appliance industry, electrical and the electronics industry. According to the company, short changeover times can be achieved by fully automatic and programmable stroke and slide adjustment. The bed size ranges from 1,400 by 1,000 mm for the MC 125 up to 3,000 by 1,400 mm for the MC 500.
Apart from this, many other industry players will also display their latest cutting-edge solutions at Blechexpo 2019. Hence, if you belong to the sheet metal working industry, this is the place to be in order to catch all the latest happenings of the sector live!
