The growth of the servo-driven press
A metal part from NUCAP, a global stamping supplier of automotive brake components, looks like a classic example of fineblanking, which produces blanks with machined-level precision. Thing is, the Toronto-based stamper didn’t make the... Read more...

What makes a stamper stand out?
A mountain range subtly anchors the bottom of the business card. A recipient of the card might not give it a second thought if it weren’t handed to him by a representative of a metal manufacturing company … in Wisconsin.... Read more...

The science behind the servo press
In stamping, when you get right down to it, it's not about tonnage. It's about maximizing energy, or the machine's ability to deliver tonnage, where it's needed most: between the die and workpiece. And until recently the only way to increase... Read more...

Reality TV: Frame-making in the U.S.
The A member of the CRT frame is a roll formed strip of chromium molybdenum steel, and the B member is a cold-rolled steel tube cut and bent for the application. When brought together, they form the CRT frame for the front of a television.... Read more...

Beyond Tool and Die
BTD made its first investments in tube fabricating equipment, including a BLM-Adige 803D tube laser cutting system, in 2003. Now tube fabricating accounts for roughly 15 percent of its total business.
The story is short,... Read more...

Servo-driven mechanical presses meet HSS head-on
Servo press technology allows extensive control of slide speed (velocity) and motion (dwell) in any direction and at any point in the stroke, and it delivers constant energy, regardless of the slide speed. Because slide speed is linked... Read more...

Sizing up servo presses
For example, progressive or transfer applications that require forming, coining, or blanking of high-strength alloys or dual-phase materials with critical tolerances at production speeds of 20 to 100 strokes per minute (SPM) can benefit from... Read more...

Evolution of the beast
Described as a big hammer, a beast, and a cookie cutter, mechanical presses have been the underappreciated workhorses of stamping operations. While the physics of the presses haven't changed—they produce energy needed to force the tooling to... Read more...
