Mandrels allow us to supply complex geometries with good repeatability in serial production.
Without a mandrel we bend using three and four profile bending dies. For special bending processes such as spirals, we use the winding method.
One of our core competencies is bending different bending radii in succession during a bending procedure.
Schuster does not just bend circular tubes – we focus strongly on the processing of structural-steel hollow profiles and special profiles.
Schuster’s customers frequently require frame tubes or safety-related roll bars for the machines, cabins, vehicles and/or vehicle cabins that they manufacture. Structural-steel hollow profiles are often necessary here. Schuster has become a specialist in the cold bending of structural-steel hollow profiles, particular in the segment for safety-related areas of application.
Symmetrical and asymmetrical special profiles have always played a particularly important role at Schuster. Cabin construction is a traditional market segment for Schuster. In addition to door profiles, we process hand rail profiles, vignole rails tracks, light railway tracks and many other special profiles. With the bending tools manufactured at our own tool-making facility, we can cold bend the special profiles using mandrels and profile rolling.
