Dovetailing on MetalForming’s
2021 Women of Excellence in Metal Forming and Fabricating presentation,
Brad Kuvin, editorial director, underscores the importance of their
contributions, and the value in recognition.
“The goal of this program not only is to recognize excellence in our industry,” he writes, “but also to help support those women that may be interested in a similar career. We hope that these awards help inspire those who follow.”
Industries manufactures the new B Coater, a lubricating system for
blanks for the stamping industry that can reduce lubricant consumption
by as much as 70% and increase productivity by as much as 30% over hand
lubricating. The Stainless Steel B Coaters are available in six sizes to
handle blanks from 6 inches or less up to 48 inches and are designed to
operate reliably in the rigorous metal stamping environment. B Coaters
are power driven with a variable speed motor to feed each blank through
the rolls while the lubricant is being applied to the blank.
PMA and MetalForming magazine’s popular stamping conference is back and better than ever! In 2021, lubrication technology was added to the event, which took it to the next level. Now named the Metal Stamping and Lubrication Technology Conference, it is heading to Cincinnati, OH, for the first time on January 18-19, 2022.

metal forming companies choose to use a rule of thumb that calls for
a maximum 20-percent thickness reduction on a formed part compared with
the initial flat-blank thickness. In some cases, this substitution
proves acceptable, but in many cases using the 20-percent threshold only
confuses the proper course of action.
Welding Tool Steel: Challenges and Solutions
Welding can restore expensive tooling to production capability, but only
through the use of an appropriate plan of action and proper selection
of weld processes, filler materials and heat treatments.
