Schuler and Porsche Form JV for Auto Body Parts

Schuler and Porsche form a 50/50 joint venture to use IoT Industry 4.0 networked equipment capable of machine learning to create the “Smart Press Shop.” The intent is to create “highly flexible production of complex car body parts, with a focus on aluminum body panels.” Schuler technology that enables up to 20 strokes per minute with reduced energy consumption will be deployed. Small batch production will be achieved with a newly developed die-changing approach.
