Metalforming Controls Corp. Receives DOE Grant

Tuesday, December 23, 2003
 
The U.S. Department of Energy and Illinois Department of Commerce and Opportunity have awarded a $600,000 grant to Metalforming Controls Corp., Cary, IL. The agencies are interested in Metalforming Controls’ Force Modulator energy-efficient system for process control and its applications for metal stamping of lighter-weight metal alloys in auto/truck bodies and frames. Some of the grant money will be spent to test formability improvements with high-strength steel. The Force Modulator system is a die-mounted hydraulic cylinder system for control of the binder ring during stamping. In concert with the grant, Ford Motor Company will deploy a number of systems at various stamping plants. Learn more at www.metalformingcontrols.com.
