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 America's 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 year's 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 Chicago's 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.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
