The linear motor press “Limo20” driven by two linear motors is the result of a project that was funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research until spring 2003. Participating manufacturers in the development were Schuler AG, Automatic-Systeme Dreher Roland GmbH, who developed a new strip feed, and Siemens Linear Motor Systems GmbH, who supplied the drives.
