Sheet Metal Stamping employs Capital intensive manufacturing infra structure comprising of Stamping Presses, Press Lines, Dies, Automation , Cranes and Large Shop Floor. The major markets viz., automobile, white goods, electrical are no longer driven by volumes and the focus has shifted to: lean production, larger variety, flexibility, quick change over and being cost competitive. In this backdrop merely counting “Strokes per day” or “Productivity / person” has become irrelevant and out dated practice. Following dimensions have got added to “Productivity and Cost Effectiveness”:
• Competitive Value Add
• Throughput time for introducing New Project
• Change Over Time Loss
• Rejection Loss
• Cost of Rectification & Handwork
• Material Yield
• Energy Cost
• Cost of Operation
• Cost of Maintenance and Die Repairs
Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organizing a Two day programme on Improving Productivity and Cost Effectiveness in Sheet Metal Stamping on 23-24 October 2019 at Pune.
