MJ Gerüst produces steel decks and other sheet metal parts for scaffolding on 400-ton Schuler lines
Göppingen/Plettenberg, January 22, 2021 – MJ Gerüst GmbH is one of the leading scaffolding manufacturers in Germany. The company, based in Plettenberg, North Rhine-Westphalia, has now placed an order with Schuler for its third identical servo press. It is a 400-ton line with bed dimensions of 3,050 by 1,400 millimeters, which forms perforated scaffold decks and other parts from sheet metal for scaffolding.
Schuler will supply the servo press, which is scheduled to go into operation at the end of the year, including the complete automation from a single source. "MJ Gerüst also wants to rely on Schuler's proven servo technology for this special forming requirement," explains Area Sales Manager Olaf Klein. The machine will be located at the beginning of a production line about 50 meters of length, which also includes a profiling line as well as a welding line.
"This will enable us to further optimize the manufacturing process by eliminating the need to transport parts between production lines and making even better use of the high output capacity of the servo press," adds Alexander Böhne, Technical Manager Die Construction / Stamping Shop at MJ Gerüst. "We also equipped all three machines with a soundproof booth and spared no expense or effort to do so."
The company started in 1970 as a supplier of scaffolding components for other manufacturers and produced its first own system starting in 1985. As a result of the constant expansion of production and storage capacities, the company premises of MJ Gerüst GmbH now cover more than 30 hectares. In 2019, a second production site was established in Plettenberg, Sauerland.
