Finally there is a ray of hope - after day in, day out for months only one topic dominated our thinking. The pandemic not only dominates our private lives, we have also been fooled by the prevailing uncertainty in our business environment. At the latest now, with yesterday's news and the prospect of a vaccine, it is time to look ahead, define goals and prepare the stamping plants & forming machines for the post-COVID era.
The stroke rate of progressive and transfer presses can be significantly increased by the optimal adjustment of the process parameters. The success of such a process optimization is usually expressed by the increase in stroke rate.
But how much additional output must be achieved so that the costs of this effort can be economically justified?
Blechexpo and Fabtech trades are just around the corner, and for me this is heralding the final phase of the working year. This is the time to regularly spend time planning and designing the new year. Residual budgets can be of great help in implementing corporate goals and promoting your own employees. To think about the new year in time offers a personal advantage in the new year and increases the anticipation of a merry Christmas.
Great efforts are made to increase the production quantity of forming machines. Those responsible diligently create value stream analyzes, constantly optimize setting values, invest in modern production equipment and much more in order to increase output.
A concrete and outright structured analysis of the process bottleneck helps to address the causes with efficient means and leads to a sustainable improvement.
State-of-the-art and high-performance stamping equipment in the press shop and yet the desired production volume is far from being achieved? ... or do you think a specific sheet metal component / tool should in principle achieve a higher output rate, even though it is much slower in real terms?
With the following easy-to-use tips, you can identify potential optimization potential for more stroke rate and ask your setup staff the right questions.
Identify the stroke rate potential of a tool design at a glance. Making the right decisions and actions when reviewing a tool design does not always take a lot of time.
Your significant benefit out of that is, you can set the course right in the early and initial stages of tool design!
