The focal point and workhorse of the sheet metal shop is the press and maintaining a reliable press system is essential to face the fierce competition faced by today's press shops. In metal stamping, everything from poor quality parts to accelerated die wear and damage often is caused by poor maintenance. Many fabricators rely on ad hoc maintenance when a machine goes down, with all available resources focused to fix the problem. This approach works most of the time, but at a high cost. Whereas adhering to a press maintenance program leads to cost reduction by decreasing downtime, enhancing machinery output, and establishing a formal recordkeeping system for ongoing inspections, improve quality production, lower maintenance & machining cost.
