allows users to automatically modify tooling surfaces based on the
precise springback calculations from the AutoForm solver. Engineers can
easily define compensation regions, which the software automatically
adjusts using the springback results. The compensated geometry is then
used for rapid and accurate tooling validation without extensive trial
and error. AutoForm Engineering USA, Inc., Troy, MI, 888/428-8636, www.autoform.com
Coil racks create vertical storage capacity for metal stampers, formers
and fabricators to improve plant safety and increase product
selectivity. High strength shelves and custom cradles safely store coils
exceeding 80,000 lbs. Optimize your operations by maximizing floor
space, reducing material damage, and increasing through-put with Dexco

Precision Spray Control technology, from Spraying Systems Co.,
ensures the proper volume of lubricant is applied, even when line/press
speeds or dies change. Precision application eliminates waste of costly
lubricants and quality problems caused by inconsistent coverage.
Maintenance downtime due to oil mist is eliminated, worker safety is
improved and operating costs are decreased.
two-day program in Novi, MI, will bring stampers and die shops up to
date on new lubricants for stamping and tool and die machining, and help
them evaluate new formulations and select the right lubricant for the
job. Attendees also will come away with an understanding of the various
techniques available for applying lubricant, to ensure optimum
application while minimizing waste.
