New Hotline has Stamping-Design Engineers
Just a Phone Call Away

Thursday, May 22, 2008
 
Die-Tech, Inc., York Haven, PA, has introduced a stamping-design hotline as a resource for engineers and others working in manufacturing plants that use precision metal stampings. Die-Tech engineers will be available to answer questions exploring design flaws, raw-material selection, assembly issues and other common inquiries. One of the goals of the hotline is get design engineers involved in projects earlier in the process so that designs are refined based on sound stamping practices, eliminating the potential for rework down the road. It also should minimize design changes and the design-change approval process. Technical support from the hotline (1-888-89-STAMP) is free and available 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Robot Orders for Non-Automotive
Applications Jump 36 Percent

Wednesday, May 21, 2008
 
According to the Robotic Industries Association (RIA), Ann Arbor, MI, North American robotics companies report that while new orders sold to North American manufacturers fell 17 percent in the first quarter of 2008 from the same quarter in 2007, revenue rose five percent. Orders to automotive manufacturers and their suppliers fell 34 percent in units, while orders to non-automotive markets surged 36 percent. Welding and coating/dispensing orders, heavily tied to automotive, showed big declines, while assembly and material-handling applications, found extensively in non-automotive sectors, showed gains.
