Michelangelo Reduces Metal Stamping Material Costs By 3-6%
“Michelangelo’s patented system dramatically reduces defects by eliminating wrinkling, tearing and splitting and reduces material costs – configurable for any press & any die.”
— Michelangelo Stamping Inc. today announces they have released their patented Intelligent stamping system that reduces material costs by up to 6% and dramatically reduces defects by virtually eliminating wrinkling, tearing and splitting saving manufacturers thousands of dollars per day.
Michelangelo is a complete variable force actuation system with hydraulic cylinders, hydraulic pressure tanks, manifolds with servo-valves, Intelligent digital computerized control system and customized software user interface. The system uses our patented hydraulic force control technology integrated into a bolster on which the die can be mounted and placed in a press.
Or swap out the “Nitros” and replace each with Michelangelo’s hydraulic cylinders to provide tonnage in the range of 0.5 – 25 tons while costing 50%-60% less than an equivalent nitro (gas spring). By using Michelangelo instead of nitros, the cost for binder force generation can be reduced by up to 70%.
In production, the use of smaller blanks as detailed above together with scrap reduction using automatic tonnage corrections to accommodate for lube build-up, die temperature changes and small thickness variations results in material savings in the range of 6%. For aluminum door-inner panels, this works out to more than $1,000/hour, assuming the parts are being made in a line operating at 10 strokes/min.
Furthermore, downtime to correct production defects is minimized. By using Michelangelo, these costs can be significantly reduced.
Finally, by ensuring a correct binder force tonnage profile, press impact forces are reduced, leading to increased press wear and lower press maintenance costs.
