Wintriss Wintriss will display its ShopFloorConnect asset-utilization software, able to collect data from stamping presses, press brakes, laser-cutting machines and other fabricating equipment. The software displays real-time machine-status information on a PC or mobile device—no need to install any special software. It automatically delivers reports showing downtime analysis and OEE, and provides the vital real-time data missing from many ERP and MES systems. It is scalable and flexible, and comes factory-configured to communicate directly over your LAN with the ShopFloorConnect Machine Interface (SMI).

Visit the Komatsu booth in FABTECH’s METALFORM technology area to watch servo-press technology in action. Learn how new die cushions are able take advantage of the controlled slide velocity of a servo and synchronize timing between slide position and cushion tonnage/stroke. Digital technology replaces guesswork for cushion setting. On the fabricating front, Komatsu displays its Twister cutting machine and its Quick Gas option. Quickly changeover from cutting 1/8- to 1-in. steel with fine plasma to oxyfuel cutting 2-in. plate with a mere 30-sec. nozzle change.

Dallas Industries

Dallas will display its Profile Select feed control, which provides automatic cam window utilization and selectable strip motion profiles—sinusoidal, trapezoidal, and maximum speed profile. Automatic speed compensation allows for on-the-fly ramping of press speed with matching increase of feed rate. An automatic line speed signal synchronizes the speed of the straightener, reel or cradle for better control of loop supply. And, a time-based profile system has been developed for servo- and hydraulic-press applications. Also displayed: a new generation of zig-zag feeders with high-speed lateral travel for circle-blanking applications.
