Cell Automation

Ranging from simple to complex.

High productivity requires well aligned automation solutions. Bühler specifically developed a series of peripheral devices to be used in Bühler casting cells that are ideally suited for a broad range of applications. These devices are partially or fully integrated in the plant control system which facilitates the operation of the casting cell substantially. Bühler’s automation solutions offer customized options tailored to customers’ requirements.

Structural

Cost-effective production of structural components.

Structural is an excellent process for manufacturing thin-walled components that are subject to heat treatment and have to be weldable. The process takes into account all aspects that are relevant – this is Bühler’s comprehensive approach to the cost-effective production of structural components in aluminum die casting.

Bühler is aware of the fact that cost-efficient production of structural components begins with the design of the components and the proper implementation during production. With its Carat machine series and the SC real-time control Bühler has a plant engineering available that offers the flexibility and reproducibility required for the production of structural components. Additional services as well as training of personnel complete the range of services.
