Why Would You Recommend a Career in Manufacturing to Women?
Dovetailing on MetalForming’s 2021 Women of Excellence in Metal Forming and Fabricating presentation, Brad Kuvin, editorial director, underscores the importance of their contributions, and the value in recognition.

“The goal of this program not only is to recognize excellence in our industry,” he writes, “but also to help support those women that may be interested in a similar career. We hope that these awards help inspire those who follow.”

A Lubricating System for Blanks
LSP Industries manufactures the new B Coater, a lubricating system for blanks for the stamping industry that can reduce lubricant consumption by as much as 70% and increase productivity by as much as 30% over hand lubricating. The Stainless Steel B Coaters are available in six sizes to handle blanks from 6 inches or less up to 48 inches and are designed to operate reliably in the rigorous metal stamping environment. B Coaters are power driven with a variable speed motor to feed each blank through the rolls while the lubricant is being applied to the blank.

From the December Issue of MetalForming
Don’t Blindly Use the 20-Percent Maximum Thinning “Rule”
Some metal forming companies choose to use a rule of thumb that calls for a maximum 20-percent thickness reduction on a formed part compared with the initial flat-blank thickness. In some cases, this substitution proves acceptable, but in many cases using the 20-percent threshold only confuses the proper course of action.
Welding Tool Steel: Challenges and Solutions
Welding can restore expensive tooling to production capability, but only through the use of an appropriate plan of action and proper selection of weld processes, filler materials and heat treatments.
