Germany-based Schuler holds a TechDay in Puebla
Schuler has already developed solutions for the digitization and networking of forming technology with the new servo press MSP 400 or the process monitoring system for hot stamping systems. They are part of the “Smart Press Shop”, Schuler’s answer to Industry 4.0 (“Industrial Internet of Things”, IIoT). The big benefits for operators of presses have now been experienced by the visitors at Schuler’s TechDay at the end of November in Puebla, Mexico.
“The digital transformation of the press shop is already well underway,” says Carlos Valdes, CEO of Schuler in Mexico. “Not only can major car manufacturers use the Smart Press Shop to produce for more efficient production and fewer rejected parts, but medium-sized suppliers also can. Thus, Schuler is putting forming technology on the fast track to the digital future.”
In the morning, the fourth intake of apprentices was celebrated as they left the vocational training center Cedual. The 16 industrial engineers and toolmakers prepared themselves for their job with theoretical and practical phases based on the German model. The training center, which Schuler founded in 2012, is equipped with a teaching workshop as well as an audiovisual lecture theater and three classrooms.
