  Servo Technology. October. Cleveland
From the corner office to the shop
floor, you can reap big benefits by attend-
ing the Servo Technology Experience, pow-
ered by MetalForming magazine and the
Precision Metalforming Association. The
two-day technical conference, October 3-5 in Cleveland, OH, covers state-of-the-art servo technology used in presses, transfer systems, coil-feed lines and more. The Servo Technology Experience will provide technical presentations and case studies describing how modern servo-based equipment can help stampers improve produc- tivity and quality.
Day one of the conference will focus on servo-press technology, and include sched- uled breakout sessions with leading press suppliers. Here, attendees will have the opportunity to network with industry thought leaders and gain unique insights into how this technology is leading the evolution in the metal-stamping industry, and where the technology is headed.
Day two of the conference turns attention to transfer systems, coil-feed lines and other servo-based technology prevalent in pressrooms. Attendees will learn how these systems work in unison to lead stampers to increased performance and profitability.

                             owner Tom Simeone positions the company’s recent investment in a 330- ton Komatsu servo-mechanical press. “We see the press as filling the bill of a hydraulic, but also able to be a revenue generator for us and compete with our other traditional presses.”
Manor Tool, which operates two facilities in Illinois—a stamping and sheetmetal-fabrication shop in Schiller Park, and a die shop in Addison—eyes at least two specific applications for its newest press: coining and deep drawing. Added to the company’s 30- press stable in September of 2016, the press promises to fuel management’s desire to add flexibility to its operations, and attract new business.
Touting Servo’s Benefits Package
After modifying the bolster of the press to fits its pressroom’s quick-die- change scheme, Manor’s production crew quickly recognized it as the per- fect backup to its existing 400-ton
