Troubleshooting Component Defects in a Press Shop

Date : 24 to 25 May 2022

@ IMTMA Technology Centre, Pune


In a Press Shop, multiple production runs are carried out for stamping a number of sheet metal components. Each component requires a number of dies running on multiple presses. For each run, die setups are changed and various parameters are set. Although the dies are proven and productionized, there are some variables which could differ from batch to batch, resulting in the first few components not meeting the required quality requirement. Press Shop personnel often have to fine tune some settings to get the desired results. This is sometimes tricky and valuable time & material gets wasted in the whole process. In some cases, dies suffer damage due to manual errors and repairs have to be carried out on a war footing. This calls for specialized skills which are not always available readily at hand. To carry out such specialized maintenance, IDR approach is followed in press shops.

What is IDR approach ? IDR- it's a three leap scientific approach to trouble shooting of component defects in press shop.






Keeping this in view, IMTMA is organizing an offline / classroom training on IDR Approach for Troubleshooting Component Defects in a Press Shop.

Focus Areas

  • Care to be taken by Press shops while accepting Dies for production
  • Understanding common defects in components
  • Best Practices to overcome these defects
  • Do's and Don'ts during Die setup change
  • Understanding various press parameter settings
  • Role of sheet materials in causing inconsistent part quality
  • Preventive maintenance of Dies
  • Optimizing Die life
  • Display of sample parts in order to identify the defects   

Key Take Aways

  • Systematically evaluate Dies before accepting them for production
  • Understand the various defects which occur in production runs
  • Apply the right methods for ironing out these defects
  • Understand various Press parameter settings
  • Understand the right techniques of refurbishing Dies
  • Understand various adjustments available in Dies for fine tuning
