First monoblock servo press for Scandinavia
Schuler has handed over a monoblock servo press to the Swedish automotive supplier Gnotec Kinnared AB. The MSD-400 machine is the first servo press ever supplied by Schuler to Scandinavia. The press manufacturer is also supplying the coil line and roll feed, which together with the MSD-400 form a complete forming system. The servo press with a press capacity of 400 t replaces a mechanical eccentric press at Gnotec Kinnared AB. "With the new machine, we are significantly increasing our productivity," says Magnus Stagh from Gnotec Kinnared AB: "Compared to the previous model, it achieves double the output.
In addition, the servo press can produce higher quality parts than before. "The MSD-400 also makes Gnotec Kinnared AB's production more flexible and efficient. This is because with servo presses it is possible to program both stroke heights and forming speeds individually. In addition, energy consumption - at the same output rate - is significantly reduced, while the service life of the dies is significantly increased.
Gnotec Kinnared AB produces a wide variety of metal parts, mainly for the automotive industry. Headquartered in Gnosjö, southern Sweden, the company was founded in 1933 and today employs around 500 people at six locations in Sweden, Slovakia and China. The GNotec Group has been part of the Frauenthal Group since 2013.
