Day One—Wednesday, October 5, 2016—Servo Press Experience

8:00 a.m. Registration, Continental Breakfast, Exhibits Open
9:00 a.m. Servo-Press Technology: A State of the Industry Report, and a Look Ahead
Wenzel will review how servo presses have become practically commonplace in today's market. While the driving force for servo-press technology has been processing high-yield-strength materials, we will discuss other applications for this technology. In addition to high-yield materials used in the automotive industry, we will discuss how these materials are impacting other industries. Lastly, we will review how improvements in servo presses and the advent of new materials is revealing shortcomings in auxiliary equipment, and the system integration that's needed in order to adapt the technology to new market conditions.
Todd Wenzel, TCR Metalforming Solutions
10:00 a.m. Energy Requirements and Energy-Management Systems for Servo Presses
Included will be a discussion of working energy—at different stroke lengths, learn how working energy changes at different stroke lengths; how we can dictate the amount of working energy we want; and how this information dictates servo-system sizing.
