Schuler supplies two hydraulic 400 tons Schuler HPX presses to König Metall

15 April 2016
Schuler Presses has supplied two hydraulic Schuler HPX presses, each with a press force of 400 tons, to the König Metall's Croatian site of Pisarovina, Schuler announced. 

"For us, as an automobile supplier, Schuler Presses delivers exactly what we need", says Hans-Jörg Leuze, Managing Director of König Metall in Gaggenau, Germany. "Our customers expect us to develop and manufacture parts of the utmost quality, and to do so, we need appropriate machines." In 2014, König Metall had founded the facility in Pisarovina, located about 30 kilometers south of Zagreb. As of today, 200 people work at the location which has shown a rapid growth in the last two years; the first production hall was followed by a second one very quickly.

The machine park now includes a total of 22 presses, most of which have been delivered by the Schuler Group. Among other things, the two latest Schuler lines produce parts for trucks and exhaust systems for various vehicles. HPX presses are ideal for small and medium batches of components with high forming paths, thereby making them the perfect solution for König Metall. Thanks to the standardized machine concept, not only do they offer an attractive price/performance ratio, they can also be supplied in just seven to eight months and installed and commissioned at the customer’s site in just a few more weeks.

With further plants in Germany, Italy, Poland, Canada and Russia, and 950 employees worldwide, König Metall is a global company today which specializes in sheet metal and pipe processing. The company, which was founded in 1901, is being run by the fourth generation. Until 2013, the late Dr. Otmar Zwiebelhofer was the sole owner and manager, former managing director of the Employers' Association Südwestmetall.
