In 2015, Schuler delivered the first monoblock servo press for Scandinavia: a type MSD 400 machine for Gnotec. Due to its technical possibilities the Swedish automotive supplier could expand its business significantly. With a MSD 800, Schuler is now handing over the third servo press to Gnotec in four years.
Like the MSD 400 and the other MSD 800 before, which started production in 2017, the new machine comes with both coil line and roll feed and thus compromises a complete forming system.
Servo presses enable manufacturers to individually programme both the stroke height and forming speed. At the same time, there is a dramatic reduction in energy consumption – at the same output level – and a significant increase in die service lives.
The Gnotec Group is a leading international manufacturer of metal components. More than 800 employees also work in China, Slovakia and the US at production sites which offer state of the art technology. The head office is located at Lindholmen Science Park in Gothenburg, bringing together over 330 companies and organisations in an international environment at the heart of Sweden’s automotive cluster.
