an industry that demands precision, managers must have absolute
confidence that equipment will continue to work at an optimal level. As a
result, many metal forming companies have begun to rely on continuous
conditioning-monitoring technology to optimize equipment throughput and
consistency. This technology helps shops reduce maintenance costs by
making accurate record-taking more straightforward and available in real

report from Frost & Sullivan, titled 5G in Process Industries,
finds that the limitations of 4G networks are enabling 5G technology to
become an important ally for Industry 4.0. The high bandwidth and low
latency provided by 5G networks, along with the organizational and
economic benefits of industrial digitization and falling prices of
technologies such as machine learning and Big Data analytics, are
pushing manufacturers toward implementing Industry 4.0 solutions.

stampers dealing with the effects of the skilled-labor shortage,
including brain drain and lost shop-floor productivity, advances in
press controls and the expanded use of sensors promise to multiply the
capabilities of staff already on the floor. In addition, the advances
described here promise to extend the careers of older team members and
help attract new hires.
in a recent global survey of 321 manufacturers communicated the need

market adversity. Plex Systems, a Rockwell Automation company, in
collaboration with Hanover Research, uncovers the current state of smart
manufacturing, the challenges manufacturers are facing, and
expectations for the future of the industry.
Join Plex and Precision Metalforming Association as we discuss the report’s key findings and provide actionable steps to create your own technology adoption plan and embrace the future of smart manufacturing.
surface mount Pile Driver provides 20% more sensing distance, yet
requires only 1/10 the mounting space. The standard cable is
cut-resistant and immune to cutting fluids and oils, while weld-immune
models resist molten metal spatter. Surface mount Pile Driver can be
flush mounted in your fixtures and tooling.
study from Emergen Research predicts the global market for sensors to
enable Internet of Things (IoT) technology to reach $204.74 billion by
2028, at a steady compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 30.8 percent
during the forecast period. Contributing to the rise is the growing
trend of smart factories and automation of various manufacturing

automotive-focused Great Designs in Steel conference returns live, May
18 at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, MI. From the American
Iron and Steel Institute, GDIS (for which MetalForming magazine is a
proud media sponsor) celebrates its 20th year in 2022 as the signature
North American event where automotive engineering, design, technology
and academic leaders provide insight on the latest trends and material
applications on new cars and trucks.
This summer, the pages of MetalForming magazine come to life via a three-part online event: MetalForming LIVE. Tune in for free to hear MetalForming’s three expert columnists, Pete Ulintz, Danny Schaeffler, Ph.D., and Eren Billur, Ph.D, host 90-min. roundtable discussions on three topics of critical importance to metal formers. The topics: newer materials, progressive-die simulation and press-stroke optimization. They’ll be joined on the online stage by metal formers dispensing their expertise gleaned from extensive experience with the chosen topics. And, attendees can participate in lively Q&A discussions.

Automate the Pressroom with No Upfront Cost? “Sign me up for that,” says Jose Figueroa, plant manager at Chicago’s Polar Manufacturing, an OEM of heavy-duty truck hardware. Polar now enjoys the benefits of two cobot-tended operations—a stamping press and a spot-welding machine—both financed by a third party to which it pays an hourly fee. Call it Robotics as a Service.
