The worlds most versatile wire bending machine: X2000NC
The Schmale X2000 Series
Metal parts manufacturing usually involves a series of processes to size, shape and build the desired final product. For example, a simple piece metal wire taken from the metal wire coil can be transformed into a seat headrest frame by means of different processes such as bending, notching, broaching, stamping and chamfering. Depending on the manufacturer requirements, the fabrication cycle may have more or less processes.
Traditionally, in any metal part fabrication cycle, each process is performed independently requiring specific tooling (such as presses and dies) and operators for each of them. Of course, these requirements result in higher costs and reduced efficiency, which in turn means less productivity, a longer time to market and lower profitability.
To avoid negative aspects from traditional metal parts manufacturing, Schmale Machinery provides fully automated solutions, the Schmale X2000 Series, with the X2000 NC presented as the first completely servo-electrically driven production system, thus being the first machine of its type to handle the drive axle segment without oil or hoses. These solutions are can integrate different processes such as bending, embossing, notching, flattening, joining, punching, swaging of tubes and wire in a complex fabrication cycle according to the production requirements.

The use of servo-electrical X2000 models saves considerable time for setup work since mechanical cam discs are no longer necessary. Maintenance work such as filling and bleeding of the hydraulic hoses can also be dispensed with.
The electronic control system can also be easily operated by touchscreen without long training periods. A major step was taken in the area of energy savings. The power consumption is thus 70% below that of a servo-hydraulic system.
