Göppingen/BeijingThe German car brand, Borgward, has been  launched in China with its innovative BX7 model. In order to increase production capacity, Borgward Automotive recently ordered an XL servo press line from Schuler.

From August 2018 onwards, the five-station servo press line based in Beijing-Miyun will produce body panels for the BX7, BX5 and BX6 models. The line with a press force of 67,000 kilonewtons comprises five presses and is fully supplied by Schuler, including the corresponding automation. The line features the now tried-and-tested ServoDirect technology and offers state-of-the-art in terms of energy efficiency. The latest energy management for the main drives is also just as important a requirement when it comes to designing the hydraulic drawing cushion in the first press with triple action cylinders.

Up to 16 large parts are produced per minute, 32 double and 64 quadruple parts, which are transported by Crossbar Feeders. (Image: Schuler)

Up to 16 large parts per minute are produced by the Servoline 16, double and quadruple parts can be manufactured accordingly at a higher batch quantity. The simulation program, which is also included within the scope of the order, ensures that operators are provided with optimum alignment of all movements of single presses and automation, including destackers, Crossbar Feeders for the parts transport and exit conveyor. The fast, fully automated replacement of dies and toolings ensures the flexibility needed for fast product changes.

Except for a few special components, Schuler manufactures and assembles the modules for the line – beds, uprights, slides and crowns – completely in the Chinese production facility in Dalian.

The total vehicle production capacity of Borgward will increase even further, thanks to the cooperation with Schuler. As such, the overall operative strength of the intelligent factory 4.0 is considerably increased and supports the production system by offering consumers more intelligent automobiles.
