Fifty percent less energy consumption, longer die service lives and greater precision: these are the benefits offered by Schuler Beutler’s newly developed MSC-2000 automatic blanking press with ServoDirect Technology. The new machine generation features two electrically coupled, freely programmable pressure points without gear transmission. By linking the pressure points in the press uprights, the machine’s rigidity has been significantly increased. The play-free and lubrication-free drivetrain consists of a highly dynamic servo motor, brake module and eccentric shaft with conrods, knuckle-joint and slide.
The new MSC-2000 automatic blanking press uses two such drivetrains facing each other – synchronized via the drive control – which deliver a press force of 2,000 kilonewtons. After adapting the slide motion to the workpiece, the servo direct drive also enables the user to raise the speed – and thus also the output performance in oscillating mode. Thanks to the freely programmable slide movement, dies can also be set up quickly in production.
