Maximizing the Performance of High-Speed Stamping Processes Webinar

next event

Thursday, July 14, 2022
Webinar | 12:00 - 3:30 p.m. ET

Learn the fundamentals of high-speed press applications, the construction of a high-speed press and its relationship to stamping die performance. Important die-specific topics, such as stripper-plate design and piloting methods, also are presented.


12:00 p.m.  Fundamentals of High-Speed Stamping Presses
René Zwahlen, Operations Manager (Huntsville) at Bruderer Machinery Inc., President, Sangiacomo Presses Americas
High-speed stamping presses can operate at 2000 strokes/min. and more. At these production speeds, dynamic forces and thermal influences dramatically affect the stamping process. This presentation examines mechanisms to counteract these influences and explains why these types of presses are more precise than conventional stamping presses.

1:45 p.m. Maximizing the Performance of High-Speed Stamping Processes
Peter Ulintz, Technical Director, Precision Metalforming Association
Achieving maximum performance from high-speed stamping operations requires a higher level of attention to detail than with traditional stamping processes. This presentation will discuss stripper-plate design, forming methods, piloting, and other recommendations for achieving smooth feeding of thin materials at high speeds.

3:30 p.m. Adjourn
