how Industrial Innovations can help you with all three ESG scopes. Find
out how proper use of lubrication in the pressroom can improve
operations and bring in more business. Our article on sustainability
guides you through improving your ESG reporting through the use of
better lubrication practices.
The only truth about the saying “oil is oil” is that oils can provide lubrication. However, differences in base-oil quality, how they are refined and the additives used to enhance an oil’s ability to lubricate—when properly formulated—all play a role in how much benefit can be gained from one oil to another.
with heat is an intricate process which produces good results only when
you choose the right heating options and machinery. This whitepaper
explores various methods of heat application, heat control, and offers
insights on optimum forming temperatures, limitations, and application

Air Amplifiers are a simple, low cost way to move air, smoke, fumes,
and light materials. Using a small amount of compressed air as their
power source, Air Amplifiers pull in large volumes of surrounding air to
produce high volume, high velocity outlet flows.
The Women in Manufacturing Association has launched the International Women’s Network (IWN), to connect the association’s growing number of international members and deliver them opportunities to connect, share information and support one another. IWN kicks off its programming with a virtual forum on August 25, 2022, 9:30-11 a.m. ET.
What’s wetter? Imagine you jump in a pool, whether you take a quick dunk or float around for a while, you are equally as wet as the moment you hit the water. The same is true with metal forming. There is a point when your stock is completely lubricated, and extra fluid is waste.
Using a Unist Uni-Roller® you can expect up to 50% fluid savings. The Uni-Roller® applies a clean and consistent coating to both sides your stock. The minimum fluid coating lubricates your stock as equally as a dunk tank, using only a fraction of the fluid. With even application the lubricant is always where it’s needed, protecting your die. Ready to experience a cleaner work environment and reduced downstream cleaning costs?

bonds hold atoms together, and metal flow requires breaking these
atomic bonds. During the metal stamping process, when a punch first
contacts a sheet metal blank and prior to these bonds breaking, the
forces produced move the metal atoms away from their neutral state and
the blank begins to deform. At the atomic level, the applied force leads
to elastic stresses that result in deformation known as elastic strain.
Exciting International Event Taking Place in the United Kingdom This Fall Join PMA at the 20th ICOSPA International Congress of the Metal Stamping/Forming Industry, October 19-21 in Birmingham, United Kingdom.
