Rockford Toolcraft to Automate 27 ft. of Bolster Space

Wednesday, October 11, 2006
 
HMS Products Co., Troy, MI, will outfit automation equipment onto a pair of two-slide high-tonnage presses installed in the new stamping-plant addition of Rockford Toolcraft, Rockford, IL. Coming to the stamping plant in Spring 2007: a pair of HMS Series 900HD transfer systems and a between-press parts shuttle, as well as a coil-handling system from Feed Lease Corp., Rochester Hills, MI. The tandem transfer-press line will be able to feed ½-in.-thick material from 60-in.-side coils. The transfer automation will feed in both directions, in tandem or single-press configurations, and can operate in two-axis, three-axis or crossbar-transfer modes.
