…with a clear eye on ROI. Compared to a conventional mechanical press, in a direct-drive servo press, ROI comes from higher throughput, improved dimensional repeatability, reduced die-debug time, particularly on takeover tools; and reduced time and cost for die build and maintenance.

Get the Control You Need to Improve Press Production Systems
Link Systems engineers controls that increase the performance of every machine in a unique, integrated stamping press configuration. Intelligent press and automation controls give manufacturers a real-time window into their press production systems. These controls are increasingly important with automation, robotics, IOT connectivity, and shop floor data collection. Read the whitepaper on how intelligent press and automation controls can increase production, extend product life, reduce stress in operations, and provide room to grow.

New Life for an Old Press
"With dedicated remanufacturing facilities and trained personnel on three continents, Nidec Press & Automation can provide new life for used machinery. Whether it’s a major component or an entire press, NPA can update you machinery to meet current needs at a fraction of the price and delivery time of a new press. Upgrade options include: change shutheight; increase speed; reduce stopping time; new controls; change stroke; increase energy; and much more."

Understanding Horizontal image
Understanding Horizontal Forces in Stamping Dies
Before designing die components, considerable knowledge is required about the forces acting on each of the individual components. The designer should analyze the vertical forces to determine if horizontal forces or side thrusts, also called force vectors, are created during the cutting and forming processes. Horizontal forces inside of the die often cause many alignment-related problems.
