Sheet Metal Die Maintenance - IMTMA/M012

Programme Background

Companies continue to struggle to maintain, manage and control sheet metal stamping operations in a manufacturing environment, but proven strategies and procedures can turn things around. Sheet Metal Tooling must receive the same treatment as Presses. Maintain, maintain, maintain. Any PM process that centres on tooling must, by nature, provide for the uniqueness of the tool while considering the common wear-able elements shared by many such tools. Each tool has elemental functions that must be considered for maintenance: Alignment, Guidance, and Basic Activity. Maintain the components of each function and you maintain the tool. The impacts of sudden Die Breakdowns are extremely unpleasant and result in big monetary losses and other negative consequences.

  • Need for effective die upkeep.
  • Key resources those are crucial in the build up to a good tool room.
  • TPM approach to die maintenance.
