Our Service department also optimises schmale machines that are approaching the end of their useful life. In most cases, even small adjustments are enough to increase the cycle rate. We can fine-tune the interaction of the individual stations and optimise tool contours or materials.

Tool and process optimisation

Often, small adjustments are all that is needed to increase the cycle rate. This optimisation allows us to fine-tune the interaction of the individual stations, and to optimise tool contours or materials. This is followed by tool-specific operator training to ensure ease of use.


If your Schmale machine no longer meets the current requirements in terms of its mechanical or electrical/control technology, it’s time for a partial or general overhaul.
In the case of a partial overhaul, for example, the safety concept is completely revised as part of a control system retrofit.
In the case of a general overhaul, all mechanical wear parts are also replaced.

Control system retrofitting

to improve performance

schmale systems are designed to be mechanically reliable for many years of continuous operation. They often achieve an operating life of 30 - 40 years. This is sustainable, but control technology develops rapidly over such time periods. Upgrading the control system to modern NC technology therefore offers significant advantages for older schmale systems.

Benefits of a control system retrofit:

  • Completely revised safety concept
  • Excellent spare parts availability
  • Elimination of costly downtimes
  • Possibility of implementing the latest NC technology
  • Performance increase of 20-30% and more

General overhaul / retrofit

for the coming decades

A general overhaul or retrofit will provide you with the following benefits:

  • Increase in system performance
  • Replacement of wear parts
  • Elimination of costly downtimes
  • Extended system life

Online fault report

The online fault report helps our Service department to make an initial assessment of the problem and, if necessary, speed up the service call. A qualified service employee will contact you as soon as possible in order to rectify the fault.


Instruction and further training

As a leading manufacturer of wire bending machines and material forming systems for wire, tube and strip, we offer our customers training courses on machine construction, machine engineering, operation and maintenance, as well as tool design and minimising set-up times, plus many other topics relating to the systems from schmale Maschinenbau GmbH.



To ensure the longevity of your Schmale machine, maintenance should be planned well in advance. In this way, we can work together to increase functionality and keep downtimes to a minimum or even prevent them altogether.
