Special-purpose machines

Special-purpose machines from schmale Maschinenbau can intelligently combine a wide range of technologies. The machine shown above is used to produce double-headed anchors for the construction industry.

Individual combinations of servo-electric units such as bending slides, presses or finger benders create tailor-made solutions. Often, these highly customised items cannot be produced on any of the standard machines available on the market.

schmale offers special-purpose machines for processing wire, tube and strip.

What is a special-purpose machine used for in forming technology?

Modern forming technology production systems are more flexible and versatile than ever before. High-quality automatic machines can combine a multitude of production steps and produce even complex parts quickly and in excellent quality. However, sometimes specific components cannot be produced on one of the standard machine types. In such cases, it is necessary to design a special-purpose machine that is precisely tailored to the production requirements. This type of special-purpose machine can be created by modifying a system or it can be a completely new design. When designing a special-purpose machine, it is extremely important to ensure that the machine can be expanded and developed. This ensures that the production line can be modified to meet new requirements as and when these change. Customers for special-purpose machines come from a wide range of industries, and suppliers to the automotive, aerospace, furniture and construction industries have traditionally relied on special-purpose machines.
