 Event Details

  Bring your die-maintenance problems to this seminar!

 • Is there really a difference between die maintenance and die repair?
 • Can my die designs be improved in order to ease maintenance on the shop floor?
 • Is there a systematic way to select tool-steels and heat treatments to improve die life?
 • How can I reduce cutting, punching and forming problems in my dies?
 • What role does the stamping press play in die-maintenance problems?

During this event attendees will learn answers to these questions as they also discover potential solutions and troubleshooting techniques for actual die maintenance issues in their shop.
