4-slide hooks – production, areas of application and quality requirements
4-slide hooks are simple bent wire parts that are utilized in a wide variety of branches and industrial sectors. Typical examples of 4-slide hooks are lock strikers in cars or lashing rings for securing loads. In addition, 4-slide hooks are used in a wide variety of other situations – such as in the form of connecting or safety elements. They are produced using traditional forming technology on machines with 4 sliding benders. Modern production machines, such as those developed by Schmale Maschinenbau GmbH, can combine the production of 4-slide hooks with other technologies and thus speed up the manufacturing process enormously. The use of 4-slide hooks in sensitive areas such as safety technology means that the highest standards of quality need to be maintained. At the same time, the flexibility and economy of the employed machines needs to be ensured over the long term.
Production of 4-slide hooks on machines from Schmale
Machines from Schmale enable the efficient, inexpensive and high quality production of 4-slide hooks. A typical feature of Schmale machines is the possibility of combining a variety of different technologies with one another. Accordingly, the production of 4-slide hooks can also be integrated into a complex production process. The building block principle consistently followed by Schmale makes it possible to precisely tailor the range of production possibilities to the relevantly required product group. This guarantees a high level of automation and added value in the production of 4-slide hooks with machines from Schmale Maschinenbau GmbH. The future viability of the machines is also ensured at the same time. If a customer requires 4-slide hooks, Schmale develops the optimal production solutions for him. As is the case with all products from Schmale, the highest standards with regards to quality, efficiency and future viability are maintained on the 4-slide hook machines. Schmale machines are equipped to meet both current and future industrial requirements. In particular, this includes the developments and goals summarized under the term Industry 4.0: The optimization of industrial production through the networking of digital systems for information and communication technology.
