Schuler expands product portfolio
Schuler has expanded its product portfolio to include bodymakers, neckers-flangers and light testers, thanks to a license acquired by the Japanese can making company Universal Can Corporation (UCC).
Speaking of the acquired technology Johannes Linden, head of Schuler’s Systems Division, says, “The proven machine design will be enhanced by our powerful Research, Development & Engineering organisation. We will apply proven Schuler core machine elements to offer the well-known German precision.”
In addition, Schuler has recruited a new team with many years of experience in producing cans. Its members will be able to provide can and tooling design, technical process support and engineering for installation, commissioning, training, and start-up of a beverage can line. The team will be led by Terry Voce for Project Management, Installation and Start-Up, Marcel Schoumacker for Sales, Dr. Bruno Burkert for D&I Process Technology, and Rainer Berkefeld for Container Development.
“The demand for beverage cans and metal bottles is growing, and we believe that we can support the global marketplace,” maintains Johannes Linden, MD. “We would like to invite all can makers to benefit from an independent, globally present and reliable partner with a customer-focused team, proven technology and a commitment to continuous innovation.”
