This comprehensive, one-day seminar covers the following topics:

Close Tolerance Blanking & Multi-Blanking
Tolerances specified for blanks get ever tighter, yet there is a great deal of confusion on how they are properly measured and best produced.

  • Definition of a blank
  • How camber affects tolerances
  • How slitting affects blank tolerances
  • How leveling affects blank tolerances
  • The proper way to measure blanks
  • Line configurations to produce best tolerances

Geometry of Shape Variations, How to Make Flat Rolled Flat
Designed for personnel in flat rolled processing plants, this session examines shape defects and methods used to improve flatness.

  • Types of shape defects
  • The roller leveling process
  • Types of Levelers
  • Design considerations
  • Drive configurations

Technology for Precise Slitting
An examination of slitting theory and how to produce an optimum cut with minimal burr.

  • The theory of slitting and shearing
  • Proper clearances and tool tolerances
  • How to minimize burr and optimize your cut
  • Tool handling and care

Coil Processing Equipment Safety
Regardless of the type of equipment used in your operation, the safety of your personnel should be paramount. However, the key is to guard the equipment AND maintain its functionality.

  • General safeguarding
  • Interlocks and work zones

Flat Material That Stays Flat – Producing Laser Quality Sheets
Material that looks flat does not always stay flat after it has been cut, and the growing number of companies using laser equipment needs material that will stay flat after cutting, punching, etc.

  • The effects of trapped internal stresses
  • How to eliminate material spring back
  • How tension improves the leveling process
  • How Temper Mills work
  • How Stretcher Levelers work
