The Auto Interior Soft Trim and Auto Seat Cover Industry is a key sector for Freeman Schwabe Machinery and especially for SCHWABE USA cutting presses, which have a set of unique capabilities to precision cut large quantities of soft fabric material.
Lear Corporation recently presented at the Lear Investor Day Presentation on June27th 2018 background information and data on the company’s industry competitiveness and how they are the fastest growing automotive seat manufacturer.
Freeman SCHWABE is very proud that the Lear Corporation is one of the company’s key clients / customers in the auto / car seat material industry, we have supplied multiple SCHWABE hydraulic cutting presses (with Die Vacuum System) to Lear Corporation during 2017-2018.
High volume manufacture of automotive interior trim components is achieved with great precision and excellent material efficiency using Ontario Die International’s die vacuum system on a SCHWABE progressive feed straight ram hydraulic beam press.
Simply. Up to 40cm (10″) of tri-laminate material is positioned on top of the steel rule die or Dieverse TM. Tooling. The hood then encloses the die and material within the carrier, the cutting matrix being mounted in the hood. A vacuum pump then expels the air from the system which draws the hood down and compresses the material to approximately 5cm (2″) in height.
The entire system is then incrementally fed through a hydraulic cutting press specially fitted to suit the DIEVAC® process. When the vacuum is turned off, the lay recovers to its original height and the hood is automatically lifted clear. The components are then removed and the cycle can be repeated with a new lay of material.
Cutting Force: 470 U.S. Tons
Head Size: 40” Deep x 81” Wide
Die Board Size: 74.25” Wide x 216.25” Long
Maximum Material Width: 65″
Cutting Stroke: 8” adjustable, with reduced pressure die setting.
Daylight Opening: 12”, without cutting surface.
• 100% cutting accuracy.
• Almost zero scrap parts.
• Tremendous productivity.
• Excellent fabric utilization.
• Occupies less floor space than other systems.
• Material will not move while cutting.
• Pattern complexity immaterial to productivity. All interior blades and punches cut simultaneously.
• CAD pattern nesting utilized.
• Each ply is consistently cut, top to bottom.
• Can easily cut 250,000 linear inches of material per minute!
