The transparent press plant

We can’t see into a press, if we could it would avoid so many unplanned downtimes, if, for example, a faulty part could be identified sooner. However, the Machine Monitoring System (MMS) of the future, which Schuler presented a model of at the EuroBLECH trade fair, provides completely new insights into presses: With the aid of comprehensive system monitoring, availability can be increased, production and parts quality can be improved, and energy consumption can be lowered. The MMS is part of the Smart Press Shop, a collection of Schuler solutions for networking in the field of forming technology.
