Schwer und Kopka GmbH - effiziente Prozess- und  Werkzeugüberwachung Ihrer Produktionsmaschinen

Regular trade fair participations both nationally and internationally are a fixed component of our appointment calendar. The trade fair team of schwer + kopka will gladly present our product range to you live and up close at the well-known trade fairs by using demo systems. Many machine manufacturers show our monitoring systems live on their stands at the exhibited machines.

And if you should not be able to make it to a fair, simply make an appointment with us in Weingarten or Hilden. In our showrooms, there is a trade fair all year long. In addition, we are present at various technical congresses with our own specialist lectures.

Visit us at one of the events listed below and find out how Industry 4.0 can be implemented in your production. We look forward to seeing you!

Wuppertal, May 08th - 11th, 2019

Wafios Inhouse Exhibition

WAFIOS Umformtechnik GmbH

The Wafios Inhouse exhibition traditionally takes place every 2 years. The WAFIOS group of companies presents in their fabrication halls in Wuppertal the entire range of their wire, tube and coil processing machinery. Like in the years before, WAFIOS is expecting more than 1.000 visitors from all over word.

We from schwer + kopka are in 2019 again invited to participate as a partner exhibitor for the subject of process monitoring and data collection in the metal forming industry. A highlight in this area will be the newly developed WAFIOS HT5-40 cold header with oscillating die holder and 2 forging stations. The machine is being monitored by a SK 500 unit. Besides the usual monitoring of the forming forces by means of dynamic envelopes, the machine condition itself is being observed through a range of additional sensors. For example, the SK 500 measures and monitors temperatures on both main bearings of the machine as well as the consumption of electrical energy and compressed air.
