Omni Manufacturing employs its impressive skillset, including in-die sensing and transfer engineering, in the transfer and trimming of automotive-suspension parts,
as seen here. This setup includes the use of nearly 50 sensors. Find
out how the St. Marys, OH, company has benefitted from a press controls
upgrade in the November issue of MetalForming.
Use the “Blank” portion of Logopress3F flattening software
for SolidWorks to generate a flat blank (and formability data) in
seconds with just a few clicks. Results are generated as a standard
SolidWorks sketch using only lines and arcs (No splines!).
Exair 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.
Weber's compact model for deburring, descaling and surface grinding with a dry grinding procedure. Particularly compact and space saving dimensions with the technology of large industrial machines. Simplified operating structure with Weber's “i‐Touch” operating panel and easy accessibility for maintenance. Available in operating widths of 1100 and 1350 mm with 1 to 2 grinding stations, and Weber’s Planetary Head for all‐round edge machining across the entire width. The PT compact guarantees perfect grinding results and meets even the most stringent craftsmanship demands.
just became much easier for press operators and welders at Fleet
Engineers, a manufacturer of heavy-truck and trailer parts, thanks to the move to a dry-film lubricant
applied to coil stock. The move eliminates oil and weld-spatter
cleanup, and, management appreciates the less-than-1-yr. payback.
Better die lube application means a better bottom line.

The Destiny of Manufacturing podcast presents press expert Jeff Fredline, from Meco Corp., who shares his insights on the future of automotive,
including lighter vehicles and autonomous controls, and their impact on
manufacturing processes. Also discussed: the importance of training and
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.
To help metal formers and fabricators stay on top of hot stamping technology, MetalForming magazine debuts its Hot Stamping Experience and Tech Tour, September 17 at Urgent Design and Manufacturing in Lapeer, MI. MetalForming discussed the challenging process with some event speakers and sponsors, who provided insightful takes and glimpses into what tour and conference attendees will see and hear.
“Hot stamping involves so many technical challenges, such as proper timing of heating and cooling; designing, building and operating complex dies; and so many other variables,” explains Chad Peterson, general manager of 3-Dimensional Services, the parent company of Urgent Design and Manufacturing, where the tour will be held. “So much goes into it...you don’t just buy the equipment and go on your way.”
Kick off 2020 with a must-attend, info-packed event, the Metal Stamping and Tool & Die Conference, January 28-29 at the Nashville (TN) Airport Marriott. Presented by the Precision Metalforming Association in association with MetalForming
magazine, the conference features keynote presentations, educational
breakout sessions for stamping and tool and die, exhibits and a
networking reception for more than 200 attendees and sponsors. Track
sessions feature new, emerging, evolving and maturing technologies and
industry trends that are impactful to metal-stamping, die-design and
