FABRICATION & INSTALLATION

WORKSHOP PLANNING

The Schüco “workshop planning” consultancy service aims to provide more added value for every metal customer through individual solutions. In order to utilise the available resources in the best possible way and increase quality and performance, the current fabrication processes are initially considered as part of an as-is analysis. The focus is on use of space, operator ergonomics, machine capacity as well as material flow and digital solutions. These factors are assessed on the basis of the current workshop layout and
production range. Based on this, Schüco designs a new, individual fabrication concept which is adapted to suit the actual conditions and the needs of the Schüco partner. The result is long-term cost reduction and
quality assurance through process optimisation and increase in efficiency in all areas of fabrication.

  • Tailored, individual fabrication concepts
  • Long-term process optimisation, cost reduction and quality assurance
  • Ergonomic fabrication

AS 100 CONTINUOUS FEED MACHINING CENTRE

The new fabrication system with numerous profile cutting and notching options is as flexible as a modern 5-axis CNC machine. With its high speed and continuous fabrication process, the Schüco AS 100 also offers the benefits of a continuous feed system. In addition to its pioneering high performance in terms of fabrication optimisation, the system impresses with its minimal space requirements. This is ensured by a combined loading and unloading magazine, which can hold profiles up to 7,500 mm and thereby enables the longest unmanned operation of the machines available on the market. The heart of the machine is the processing station: a 9 m machine bed accommodates not only the two 5-axis towers, which process the profiles on four sides – including cutting and end-of-profile processing, but also five self-positioning clamps.

  • Innovative feed process provides a wide variety of options
  • Pioneering clamp: reliable profile clamping right through to the vent profiles
  • Parallel-operating towers ensure short fabrication times

AF 500 MACHINE

The 5-axis Schüco AF 500 CNC machine is a highly flexible, costsaving solution for fabricating windows, doors and façades from aluminium profiles. With processing lengths of up to 7,300 mm and excess lengths in two stages, 3- sided processing and end-of-profile machining, the system is the basis for virtually any metal fabrication task. Two highlights include processing and cutting of aluminium profiles in one work step as well as the CNC-controlled, self-positioning clamps, which shorten fabrication time significantly.

  • New processing head:
    high quality and flexibility, even when cutting
  • Axis-controlled clamps:
    flexible processing of short profilesn
  • New security concept:
    reduced space requirements

www.schueco.com/af500

AF 310 MACHINE

The Schüco AF 310, successor to the Schüco AF 300, is a new, highperformance 4-axis CNC machine for flexible tasks in metal fabrication. With intelligent control, the latest milling spindle technology with 8.5 kW and a maximum torque of 13.5 Nm, as well as simple, ergonomic operation, the machine offers maximum dynamism and precision during fabrication. The redesigned two-stage clamping area of the five motorised clamps allows a triple-track sliding unit from the Schüco ASS 70.HI or Schüco ASE 80 series to be clamped,
for example.

  • More powerful motor, especially for steel machining
  • Higher speed increases productivity in the main axis
  • Tool measurement ensures high process reliability

FABRICATION DATA CENTER

With its unique package of hardware and software, including the SchüCal workshop version and Schüco Docu Center, the Schüco Fabrication Data Center speeds up fabrication processes considerably for the fabricator – by means of digital access to the latest Schüco project and manual information as well as installation videos directly from the workshop. Another successful module is the workshop-compatible hardware, which is immediately ready for use without the need for training. A barcode reader ensures error-free assignment of the profile bars too.

  • The latest planning status is available digitally in the workshop at any time
  • Reliable visual check in 3D operating mode
  • Digital, time-saving online search through the manuals
  • Easy access to learning videos

OPERATION & MAINTENANCE

BUILDING SKIN CONTROL

One system for all units: Schüco Building Skin Control (BSC) is the comprehensive platform for the integration, control and monitoring of Schüco units in the building envelope. An open interface enables the connection of building management systems such as KNX or BACnet, as well as smart home systems such as Amazon Alexa.

The cloud-based Schüco Operation Dashboard is new. It offers an individual graphical overview, localisation and checks of all active Schüco BSC systems. On the dashboard, the user can see at a glance the live status of each mechatronic unit and a news feed. They can also plan and manage services for systems (e.g. maintenance cycles). The user-specific access management also allows the app authorisation to be managed by unit or group.

  • Intelligent control and monitoring of ventilation and ambient air quality, for example, no matter where you are
  • Simple connection to smart home systems via the Schüco cloud
  • Plan and manage service work
  • Everything at a glance on the Schüco Dashboard
