New Competitive Output & Cost Savings for Aluminum Hot Stamping

Published February 26, 2024

Schuler to present FAST technology's ability to maximize efficiency and productivity throughout aluminum hot stamping processes.

CANTON, MI / ACCESSWIRE / February 26, 2024 / Schuler North America, subsidiary of Schuler Group GmbH, and MetalForming Magazine partner together to present a complimentary webinar, "Maximize Efficiency and Productivity of Aluminum Hot Stamping." The live webinar will be presented on Tuesday, March 12, at 10:30 AM EST.

"Aluminum hot stamping continues to be a trending topic as lightweight materials remain in high demand for the automotive, aerospace, and other industries," explains Tiago Vasconcellos, Sales Director of Automotive and Industry at Schuler North America. "This webinar will inform manufacturers about how Schuler's FAST hot stamping lines ultimately increase OEE due to a new and innovative aluminum production process."

FAST, "Fast Light Alloys Stamping Technology," was initially developed by a team of qualified engineers inside the laboratories at the Imperial College London. The FAST process has since been verified, together with Schuler, in an industrial manufacturing environment. FAST is an entirely new innovation for aluminum hot forming that rivals the current industry process of Solution Heat Treatment (SHT) as FAST hot stamping lines do not require a furnace and are equipped with Multistation dies for heating, forming, cutting, and cooling applications.

Schuler's webinar will be presented by Jens Aspacher, Sales Manager of Hot Stamping at Schuler Pressen GmbH. "Manufacturers using the current industry standard of SHT in aluminum hot stamping are at a competitive disadvantage," states Aspacher. "FAST technology, for example, can form aluminum parts from 300 to 350 degrees Celsius, or 572 to 662 degrees Fahrenheit. That's at least 200 degrees less than SHT's forming temperature."

Registrants will learn about the key benefits manufacturers can expect from FAST technology that drastically contrast against the limitations of SHT. These benefits include the elimination of entire post-forming processes, energy savings of 80 percent, press cycle time reductions of 10-16 seconds per part, versatile applications specific to aluminum, lower production times and operating costs, and volumetric efficiency.
