    Schuler’s Digital Suite provides manufacturers with a fully networked press shop for optimized production.

    Schuler North America, subsidiary of Schuler Group GmbH, will host a Digitalization & Modernization Workshop on February 23, 2023. The workshop is also the grand opening of Schuler’s Michigan Ave Service Facility in Canton, Michigan.

    Schuler will identify the press shop of the future and highlight key technologies that maximize overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), implement digitalization practices, and conduct smart press shop practices. Attendees will learn how the press shop of the future reshapes costs, output, and carbon footprint.

    “Topics, and marketing buzz words, such as IIoT and digitalization have oversaturated the market,” states Telvi Zanin, VP of Service at Schuler North America. “Our Digitalization & Modernization Workshop provides the valued ‘how-to’ ingredient and is designed to help attendees build their own state-of-the-art press shop of the future.”

    Schuler’s Digitalization & Modernization Workshop is a full, one-day event with various sessions that provide innovative and practical solutions for making press shops smarter. Agenda and session topics include:

    • The Press Shop of the Future
    • Optimize Shop Floor Operations
    • Protect Dies & Prevent Damages with VDP
    • Press Shop Planning with Cloud Solutions
    • Shop Floor Tour
    • Get Proactive with Service Agreements
    • Future Products
    • Cocktail Reception  

    The workshop also serves as the grand opening of Schuler’s Michigan Ave Service Facility. The facility is 32,000 sq. ft. and is equipped with a 50-ton crane, in-house press pit for rebuilds and assembly, specialized equipment, and full-time field service and engineering support hub.

    “The Digitalization & Modernization Workshop is an opportunity to inform the market about Schuler’s Digital Suite solutions and how manufacturers can create a fully networked press shop. Concurrently, our new facility exemplifies Schuler’s capabilities to the local market,” explains Kevin McAllister, President of Schuler North America. “The Michigan Ave Service Facility enables reduced turnaround time for repairs, press rebuilds, and modernization projects. We created a convenient space for customer shipments, follow-ups, reviews, and buy-offs.”

    The workshop and grand opening will begin with an on-site press conference and conclude with a cocktail reception for guests to meet with Schuler’s presenters and team of qualified experts.
