Applications where sensor contact is unavoidable are some of the most challenging to solve. Metal forming processes involving over travel can also damage or even destroy a sensor causing failure and expensive unplanned downtime. Manufacturers often try to remedy this … Continue reading →
It’s one thing to stamp out a bunch of bad parts because the die hasn’t been properly maintained, but it is another to suffer through a crash because the wrong shut height was set. Failure means hours or even days … Continue reading →
One trend we see today in many applications is the need for smaller low profile proximity sensors. Machines are getting much smaller and the need for error proofing has ultimately become a must for such applications in the Stamping and … Continue reading →
From conversations with many of our customers, I have found that there are two key problems encountered when working with tool change-outs:
Tool Identification: “How do I know I have the right tool in there for the right job at the right time?”
Cables & Connectors: “How do I remember every time to disconnect them before the tooling is removed? We spend thousands each year repairing dies with the cordsets torn out.”
