Selection & Maintenance of Sheet Forming Presses

Selection & Maintenance of Sheet Forming Presses

Date : 20 to 21 December, 2022   Location / Mode : Pune

Last date for registration 13 December 2022

A sheet metal forming press is a combination of a press, a die, sheet metal blank and the feeding / loading method, all of which is combined together to produce a sheet metal stamped part. Sheet metal formed and stamped parts are an integral part of automobiles, aerospace, consumer goods and several other types of parts used in our daily life.

In metal stamping, everything from poor quality parts to accelerated die wear and damage is often attributed to poor press selection, die-setting and press maintenance. In order to achieve success in this activity, it requires the press operator to carry out a number of tasks in the correct manner. Choosing the right press, sizing the sheet metal blank, handling the sheet metal blank and choice of the right press tonnage become all important to get the stamping process right. Further, with regard to maintenance, A responsible shop professional would ill afford to neglect machine tool lubrication, alignment and repair.

This program shall focus on the good practices to be followed for successful operation of a press shop and provide details of warnings about improper practices.

Keeping this in mind, IMTMA is conducting a classroom training program on ‘Selection & maintenance of Sheet forming presses’.
