Expanded Servo-Technology Conference, New Editor Highlight All That's New at MetalForming

September 1, 2017

It’s been a busy summer here at MetalForming magazine, where we’re buzzing with activity focused on continuing to develop our industry-leading technology-transfer offerings. Of immediate importance is our 2017 Servo Technology Experience, October 3-4 in Cleveland, OH, where you and your industry peers can learn about the latest developments in servo technology for numerous pressroom applications. Once again, we will collaborate with the Precision Metalforming Association on this event to deliver the most up-to-date information available on the impact that modern servo-based equipment is having on the ability of metal stampers to improve productivity and quality. Among the discussion topics:

  • Optimizing your Servo-Press Investment—Learn success strategies for getting the most benefit out of a servo-press investment, including setup considerations to optimize part quality, productivity and equipment reliability. Specific examples will be introduced related to common metalforming processes, including blanking, drawing and forming.
  • Driving Efficiency with Servo-Press Technology—Find out how maximum production flexibility due to user-programmable stroke height and motion sequences can improve efficiencies. Case studies will exhibit the significant productivity gains that stampers can realize when compared to using conventional mechanical presses.
  • In-Die Servo Actuators—Learn how stampers can leverage the ability to make servomotor adjustments on-the-fly in all types of tooling (progressive, transfer and others).

Plus, attendees will have exclusive opportunities to participate in breakout sessions with press builders and interact with industry experts to get answers to your most "pressing" issues.
