Pressing plant in vehicle construction

How your production runs quickly and precisely


From the stamped part to the complete side panel, the basic elements of the body parts come from the pressing plant. Are you looking for a competent partner for the automation of the numerous tasks and processes in vehicle construction? Trust our comprehensive know-how.

We take care of everything in the pressing plant: from the safety of the press line, logistics with load carrier management, quality control to the scrap metal disposal in gentle wagon loading. Our experts take care of the production of the systems for the shell and the supporting structures. You benefit from smooth and precise process flows and efficient automotive production in the pressing plant.

Conveyor technology: The integrated view in the pressing plant takes you further

Conveyor technology is an important cross-sectional function for automotive production tasks, not only in the pressing plant. Electric monorail systems (EMS), automated guided vehicles (AGVs) and other conveyor systems take over the transport of the sheet metal parts to the body parts warehouse and the next production stations.

We control all the conveyor processes. Rely on our expertise in integrating the conveyor systems into the processes around the body construction and benefit from a higher production speed and more safety.

Pressing tool logistics: We secure your material flow

We are increasing the speed in the pressing plant. We achieve this by merging internal logistics and manufacturing processes. One important task, for example, is the logistical handling of the pressing tools. We automate the tool change, the transport of press moulds and tools and their storage and retrieval by shelf operating units in corresponding heavy-duty racks. In other words, we adapt the material handling in the pressing plant precisely to your production processes. We provide:

  • A safe supply of pressed parts,
  • The development and programming of robotic solutions for various processes: Identification, position recognition, joining processes etc.,
  • Precise handling, gripping and positioning,
  • Separating and feeding of body parts,
  • Fixing and lifting out of the sheets,
  • Removal and transport of the moulded parts,
  • A reliable quality control
  • as well as the connection to the pressed parts warehouse

Stand out from your competitors with high process reliability, more efficiency and productivity and avoid expensive downtimes – with SCHULZ Systemtechnik.
