Process control in metalforming and stamping

In Metalworking a significant part of the products are realized by forming and stamping processes, especially for series applications. The monitoring technology for press control has achieved a remarkable progress within the last years.

Optimized cycle rates lead to increased productivity and output. At the same time, there is a rising risk of asset damage, especially if unexpected errors occur. Automated protection of the tools and dies helps to increase OEE. Sensors for process monitoring are key elements.
