Kaiser Aluminium-Umformtechnik has successfully started up its first servo screw press from Schuler.
On the new servo screw press type PAR 360 SDT semi-automatic operation primarily produces highly complex chassis components for the automotive industry.The company, based in Fluorn-Winzeln and Dunningen-Seedorf, is regarded as the leading German manufacturer of forged aluminum components for small and medium-sized series. Now the company from the Black Forest has successfully started up its first Schuler servo screw press.
With the new servo screw press Kaiser Aluminium-Umformtechnik is further expanding its leading market position
"With this investment, we are further expanding our market position as a competent partner for forged parts and components in the aluminum sector," says Managing Director Thomas Kaiser. "The installation of the press at our new location in the neighboring Dunningen-Seedorf can also be seen as an investment in the region and the country."
Schuler now only uses servo motors in its screw press series instead of the previous squirrel-cage drives. The advantages are a lower machine height and improved drive controllability as well as higher starting torques with shorter stroke run times. In addition, working with full working capacity is possible with shorter lifting heights. A closed water cooling circuit for the servo motors replaces the previous cooling system with fresh air supply from the outside and leads to an optimized temperature stability of the drive system regardless of the operating air conditions.
