U.S. manufacturing technology orders totaled $330.3 million in November 2020, a decrease of 13.3 percent from October but an increase of 1.4 percent from November 2019, the first positive year-over-year change since January 2019, according to the latest U.S. Manufacturing Technology Orders report published by AMT – The Association for Manufacturing Technology. Year-to-date orders totaled $3.39 billion, a decrease of 18.7 percent from the first eleven months of 2019.
According to Douglas K. Woods, president of AMT, “the share of total orders from job shops increased in November. This could be due to larger manufacturers and OEMs delaying investments in capital equipment until 2021 when they can expense these investments against expected higher tax rates.

Products manufactures and sells a patented Slug Retention Machine known
worldwide as SlugKeeper. This portable machine puts SlugKeeper grooves
into the die cavity wall to keep the slug retained in the die cavity and
prevent slugs from pulling back onto the die block surface. This unique
device uses a pneumatically powered grinder coupled with a digital
micrometer to precisely machine a small, angled groove into the die
cavity's sidewall in a stamping die. This groove prevents slugs from
pulling onto the die surface where they can damage the production strip,
the stamped part, or the stamping die itself.
