Quality Industries Reignites Stamping Department

11/17/2015

Quality Industries has recently reignited our stamping department with a press retrofit, quick die change (QDC) equipment, and a new press. The increased uptime that resulted from both the press rebuild and the QDC equipment installation has improved efficiency, allowing one press to run all of the work that used to require two. 

“What in-house stamping has done for us is that with both the uptime that we gained from the press being more reliable and amount of time we’ve saved by reducing our setups and changeovers using QDC, we have taken what we were running on two 400-ton presses and run it on one,” said Ken Ham, VP of Engineering & Technical Services. "Plus, we don’t have to go buy stampings somewhere. We can stamp them ourselves for the products we make.”
