Windy City to Welcome
Wintriss Die Protection Clinic

Monday, February 7, 2011
Die protection and sensor selection are on the agenda when Wintriss Controls Group holds its Die Protection Clinic April 5, 2011, at the Holiday Inn in Elk Grove Village, IL. Presentations are aimed at experienced die-protection users as well as metalforming professionals just starting a sensor program. The goal is the same for both types of users—make die crashes a thing of the past. Attendees will learn how to apply in-die technology to sense for non-ejected parts, feed problems, part transfer, stripper position, slug ejection, cam return and double blanks, among other applications. The price of admission ($95) includes a copy of The Wintriss Die Protection Handbook. Learn more and register to attend here.
