Wessobrunn-Forst (Germany), 20 September 2021 – The Schröder Group will present a wide range of sheet metal working machines at Blechexpo from October 26 to 29, 2021. The highlight at booth 1709 in Hall 1 of the exhibition in Stuttgart is the continuation of a success story: The PowerBend Professional, one of the manufacturer’s most popular folding machines, underwent a relaunch and is now even more flexible in its application possibilities. The PDC-NC motorized guillotine shear has also been improved.
The most noticeable change on the PowerBend Professional, a folding machine for up to 3 mm thick steel sheet, is more space: The clearance for handling work pieces has been increased to 500 mm clamping beam stroke – previously it was 350 mm. Several drives are now completely servo-controlled, which among other things allows faster and more accurate positioning of the center of rotation. Converter-controlled 2 × 3.0 kW drives move the folding beam. A world premiere will also take place on the PowerBend Professional at Blechexpo: Hans Schröder Maschinenbau will present the first optical bending angle measuring system for inline quality assurance during folding.
Cutting, beading, flanging
The Schröder PDC-NC motorized shear has been given a convenient touch display control and its most important functional extension is the incremental production queue for serial cutting with presetting of up to 99 different or repetitive gauge dimensions. The second shear to join the line is the MHSU with pneumatically controlled hold down device.
Other exhibition machines at the Blechexpo booth of the Schröder Group is the industrial folding machine EVO Center (4,000 × 3.0 mm) with fully automatic tool changer. There is a special little detail to be discovered on the MAKU motorized folding machine: a two-axis back gauge for conical bending, with which, for example, it is finally possible to conveniently produce wall copings, roof edge trims and verge plates.
The slip bending roll type 134 will be shown with its special rolls for the production of stainless steel formers. The flaring machine 431 and the segmented folding machine ASK 3 are further exhibition machines.
