Schmale provides machines with an intelligent combination of technologies, and our concepts are as individual as your product to be manufactured. One of these technologies is servo-electric drives.
A servo-electric drive is an electronic device capable of receiving a signal from the control system to amplify it and power the servo-motor that will provide the motion required to the tool that is driving. Depending on the machine, the signals can represent current, velocity, torque, position and others.
Servo-motors in punching – bending technology
The use of servo-motors in punching-bending technology has opened up new production opportunities. Although classically driven machines are able to operate at high speeds and produce correspondingly large unit quantities, the product diversity is limited.
In addition, mechanical machines can only be converted at high expenditures. The maintenance work is also time-consuming, as hoses must be refilled and inspected or cams must be machined.
In contrast, bending machines with servo-motors, such as the X2000NC produced by Schmale Machinery, enable considerably more flexibility with regard to product diversity and much lower maintenance requirements.
Machines driven by servo-motors also allow for a changed customer logistic strategy. While companies previously relied on large warehouses designed for long-term storage, today’s inventories are generally kept for shorter periods to save on costs. The consequence is orders of smaller quantity, which need to be completed on short notice and to which the producer must react with appropriate quickness, the quickness that can only be provided by machines such as the X2000NC and the newly developed SPEEDMAX.
