Pneumatic Conveyors Serving Two High-Production Presses
Stamping scrap—unsightly, expensive and often time-consuming to remove —can limit productivity in stamping plants. Solutions often lie in carefully engineered material-handling systems designed to quickly move scrap to a central location and ultimately reduce the number of vehicles and employees needed to move smaller loads of scrap. That’s the case at the manufacturing plants of Morrison Products, a producer of air-handling components such as fans, blower wheels, impellers and propellers.

From the August Issue of MetalForming
Technology Advances in Metal Stamping
Technologies in metal stamping continue to advance and mature —as they have always done—but today this occurs more rapidly than in the past, and these technologies are profoundly more complex, resulting in an ever-widening knowledge gap. If you plan to attend FABTECH (September 13-16 in Chicago, IL), the technical conferences offer solutions for narrowing the knowledge gap. Readers of this column should find the following stamping-track topics particularly helpful.

Punch Press Programming of Complex Parts
Today’s sheet metal fabrication software systems pack powerful automated processing capabilities, including punch-sequencing macros and automatic tool selection. As a result, many shops lean heavily on the software, relying on built-in capabilities to provide optimum production solutions. But, when it comes to punching, especially the punching of complex sheet metal parts, to truly optimize programming requires more than just a touch of a button.
