    Schuler and Farina will be presenting their wide range of forging lines at the Euroforge trade fair in Bilbao.

    Schuler's range of equipment for forging is as diverse as the products created on it: from hydraulic cold extrusion, ironing, and forging presses to mechanical knuckle-joint, eccentric, and crank presses – each with and without servo drive – screw presses, drop and counterblow hammers, as well as wheel rollers. The full range of products will be on show at the Euroforge trade show on September 28 and 29 in Bilbao, Spain.

    Not to be forgotten are the systems with a press force of up to 16,000 tons from company subsidiary Farina, which has been part of the group since 2018. The Müller Weingarten and Bêché brands are also included in the group. Schuler thus offers the right technology for every part to be forged – from component development to method planning and die making, including suitable changeover systems, to the commissioning of the highly efficient machines. The lines can also be completely automated in order to increase process stability, output and availability.

    Back in 2014, the company launched the Ecoform program, which significantly reduces the energy requirements of the lines with innovations such as Efficient Hydraulic Forming (EHF). Farina makes a major contribution to the sustainability of its forging presses with its KERS kinetic energy recovery system.

    For the digital transformation in machine and plant engineering, Schuler has bundled a wide range of solutions for networking forming technology in its "Digital Suite" to increase productivity and availability. These include applications for monitoring operating status, press force, energy requirements, and cooling and lubrication circuits, "Track & Trace" for following up components, and "Schuler Connect" for rapid assistance in the event of a problem with the aid of augmented reality technology.

    Most problems can be solved remotely; however, if it does become necessary to call in a Schuler expert on site, the service team of around 800 specialists with locations throughout Europe as well as in Brazil, Mexico, the USA, China, India, and Thailand is always close at hand.
