    Schuler will promote its portfolio of innovative compression molding technologies at CAMX 2022.

    Schuler North America, subsidiary of Schuler Group GmbH, will exhibit at CAMX, North America’s largest composites and advanced materials expo, in Hall D, Booth E7. The show will take place October 17-20, at the Anaheim Convention Center, in Anaheim, California.

    Schuler will present its portfolio of innovative compression molding technologies to the market. This includes iComposite 4.0, compression molding press lines, local service and modernization support, and Schuler’s Digital Suite solutions.

    “CAMX provides an opportunity to showcase the unique ways we push the boundaries of quality, efficiency, and economy for our customers. In fact, we recently sold a 16,000-ton hydraulic molding press—from Schuler’s Compact Press Series—to a market leader within the wastewater industry,” explains Kevin McAllister, President of Schuler North America. “This new order exemplifies many capabilities that Schuler will present during the show.”

    The tailored hydraulic molding press has optimized production of the customer’s fiber-reinforced plastic component parts weighing 500 pounds or more. The installation height of the new press is 40 percent less than a classic composite press. The press reduces energy consumption by incorporating weight compensation of dynamic components. The compression molding enhances productivity and material savings—effectively reducing operational costs for the customer while meeting sustainability standards.

    “Schuler’s innovative technology has greatly reduced the part production cycle time for the customer,” states Tiago Vasconcellos, Director of Sales at Schuler North America. “This is exceptional as the market demand of fiberglass production, and material applications of fiber-reinforced plastics with glass fibers, is rapidly increasing.”

    Schuler’s modular Compact Press Series will be of interest to CAMX attendees as the design reduces oil compression and provides faster thermoplastic application and compression molding. The series can achieve minimal scrap rates, even at the highest of outputs, due to the adaptive congruent bending system and effective parallelism control.

    Schuler will also present, “Smart Factory and Sustainability Standards for Composites and Advanced Materials,” to address iComposite 4.0 and the digital future of forming technology. The presentation will take place October 18, at 1:00 PM, Room 209B.
