Hot off the Press



New Schuler Servo Press Online at Schlieder in Germany

Tuesday, January 28, 2020
Schlieder Metalworks GmbH in Zöblitz, Germany, has been forming metal for more than 140 years. Now, the company is equipping itself for the future. In doing so, it recently placed online a fully networked MSP 400 servo press from Schuler AG.

“Our dies kept getting bigger, and we were starting to run out of room,” says Frank Schlieder, company president. “We'd reached our limits in the production of our more sophisticated parts. That’s why we purchased this machine.”

“The machine has been up and running in two shifts for six months now,” says Frank’s son Ben, who serves as the company’s chief technology officer. “The servo technology was new for us, since we’d previously only used presses with conventional drives at our company. But we’ve been able to make a successful transition.”
