Notcher Ideal for Laminations

June 1, 2016

Schuler’s new Performer S produces laminations for electric motors and generators with diameters of 80 to 1800 mm.

Schuler, with U.S. headquarters in Canton, MI, used the Coil Winding Expo in Berlin, Germany, to debut its newly developed notcher. The Performer S is capable of producing laminations for electric motors and generators in a variety of sizes, notching blanks with diameters from 80 to 1800 mm.

The notcher‘s large tooling area simplifies the use of a controlled die, while its modular construction enables rapid setups. The blankholder can be supplied as a retractable centering unit or blank ejector.

Operating at speeds to 1200 strokes/ min., the 200-kN notcher is 20-percent faster than the previous model offered by Schuler, according to company officials. With a notch accuracy of 0.01 mm, it provides the necessary precision, especially for thin sheets with low blanking clearance. Assisting in precision is the notcher‘s rigid construction and its slide’s play-free, pre-stressed roller guidance.

The machine has virtually no hydraulics and is operated with oil-free air. The use of wear-free seals ensures low maintenance costs and a high reliability, claim Schuler officials. And, thanks to a counterbalance, foundation forces are low and the compact notcher can be placed above a cellar.
