SCHMIDT Technology Corp. Launches the New PressControl 70 with SafetyModule

PITTSBURGH - SCHMIDT Technology, the world leader for press solutions, recently launched a new product, the PressControl 70 (PRC70) with SafetyModule. The new press control feature will join the current SCHMIDT line which offers a complete palette of presses. SCHMIDT presses are playing a key role in the manufacturing process for thousands of products in the assembly/manufacturing world. The new PRC70 with SafetyModule raises the bar by adopting the US and global safety standards, Performance Level "e". SCHMIDT presses are found in all industries from the manufacturing of delicate medical devices to structural aircraft components and everything in between.

The PRC70 with SafetyModule is the next generation of press controls to address the growing need for preventive safety action in the market place. The drastic increase in potential costs due to lawsuits, workers compensation issues as well as lost man hours can decimate any company. This has lead SCHMIDT to continue to invest in creating the world's safest press controls. The PressControl 70 with SafetyModule offers technology that eliminates the need for other costly operator safety provisions. This unique control package comes with a 4 year warranty free of charge.

Martin Frischknecht, President of SCHMIDT Technology North America said, "We believe this Safety Technology will offer our customers the ability to upgrade their current presses. The features of this press should be considered by any production engineer for all in-plant applications."
