FABTECH - Balluff Experts Discuss Quality Management for Press Shops at FABTECH 2015

Dave Bird and Will Healy III of Balluff, Inc. will be presenting on the topic of Quality Management for Press Shops at the 2015 FABTECH event in Chicago, Illinois.

Florence, KY November 04, 2015 -- Balluff error proofing and stamping experts, Dave Bird and Will Healy III will be presenting on the topic of Quality Management for Press Shops: In-Die Process Validation & Post-Stamping Check Stations on Tuesday November 10th at 1:30pm in room S405B at McCormick Place at the 2015 FABTECH Show.


Session Overview:
Quality Management for Press Shops: In-Die Process Validation, Post-Stamping Check Stations & Error: For management, quality engineers and supervisors in stamping operations, part quality can be a source of frustration. Teams need to identify quality issues early and adjust quickly so they can have zero defects shipped to customer. This is readily accomplished through in-die process validation, electronic measurement and part tracking. Through real world examples we will discuss how press shops are successfully implementing 100% inspection of finished parts regardless of automation level.

FABTECH 2015, North Americas largest collaboration of technology, equipment and knowledge in the metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing industries, will offer more than 100 education sessions at this years event. The targeted, technical, operational and managerial discussions are designed to help attendees gain knowledge from industry leaders and explore the latest technology and industry advancements. More than 40,000 manufacturing professionals are expected to attend the four-day event, Nov. 9-12 at Chicagos McCormick Place.

Visit Balluff at FABTECH in booth# S4167 and see press shop and stamping applications with RFID, sensors and non-contact coupling, along with automated welding solutions.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
