Servo Presses Demonstrate In-Die Tapping, HSLA Blanking, Productivity Improvements at Fabtech Las Vegas 2016, AIDA-America Booth C17024 AIDA-America, Dayton, OH, USA, will demonstrate industry leading servo press technology in booth C17024 at Fabtech Las Vegas 2016.
Two AIDA DSF Series Servo Presses will be on display, powered-up and stamping parts at this year's Fabtech event taking place November 16 through 18 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The first, an AIDA DSF-C1-1500, 150-ton, gap frame servo press, will be blanking HSLA material and demonstrating AIDA's Silent Blanking motion profile which can only be achieved using a servo press. The demonstration will also highlight the versatility of AIDA servo presses and how they can improve virtually any stamping operation. These improvements include increased productivity, improved part quality, increased die life, reduced maintenance, and many more important issues for those in the stamping industry.
The second AIDA DSF Series press on display, a DSF-N2-3000, 300-ton, two-point unitized frame servo press, will be part of a full production line. AIDA-America has partnered with Dallas Industries (complete feedline), Pax Products (part/scrap removal & lubrication system), Heidtman Steel (hot rolled mild steel) and Automated Tapping Systems (servo-driven in-die tapping) to showcase this complete production line featuring a progressive die with a horizontal in-die tapping system.
AIDA-America associates will be available to share examples of production optimization driven by AIDA DSF Servo presses used in the stamping industry and discuss how these infinitely programmable presses can help maximize stampers' productivity and profit in the press room.Learn More About AIDA-America at Fabtech 2016
AIDA-America, Qualtek Manufacturing Inc. Announce Leadership Changes 11-1-16, AIDA-America, Dayton, OH, USA and Qualtek Manufacturing Inc., Colorado Springs, CO, USA are jointly announcing leadership changes within their respective organizations.
Troy Roberts, current President/COO of AIDA-America will be transitioning to the position of CEO at Qualtek Manufacturing, effective December 1st, 2016. Mr. Roberts' decision to leave AIDA-America was prompted by the opportunity at Qualtek and his strong desire to be closer to family and the great outdoors. While Troy will be missed, he is leaving AIDA-America as the North American market leader of metalforming suppliers and in the very capable hands of the 200 associates that he has worked with over the past 21 years. In his new role at Qualtek, Troy will lead Qualtek's team in achieving its goal to become the premier stamping, heat treating and metal finishing supplier to aerospace, medical device and automotive manufacturers.
Pat Ambuske, AIDA-America's current Vice President of Operations, will succeed Mr. Roberts as President & CEO, effective December 1st, 2016. Mr. Ambuske joined AIDA-America in 2001 and has held various leadership roles over planning, engineering, purchasing and manufacturing functions during his 15 year tenure at the company. Pat has played a key role in much of AIDA-America's recent success. With Pat's guidance, the local engineering team has experienced significant growth. He has helped sharpen their focus on solutions designed for North American stampers, specifically applying AIDA servo technology to a wide range of products. Significant plant and manufacturing operations expansions have taken place under Pat's leadership, positioning AIDA-America as the largest and most advanced manufacturer of stampingpresses in North America. Pat will continue to build on AIDA's success as the leader in servo press technology. As a team, AIDA-America will continue to push forward the policies of constant product improvement and deep partnership with customers to create the most effective production systems. AIDA-America will also maintain the standard of excellence in customer service and on-going support.
Both Troy Roberts and Pat Ambuske will be attending the Fabtech 2016 Las Vegas tradeshow, taking place November 16th through 18th at the Las Vegas Convention Center, and will be greeting visitors, customers, industry professionals and all others in AIDA-America's booth, C17024. They encourage all interested parties to visit the booth to personally discuss this exciting new chapter for both Qualtek and AIDA-America.

Watch a Servo Press Run in Pendulum Mode, to Boost SPM by 30 Percent Batesville Tool & Die recently invested in a new AIDA 800-ton two-point servo-drive press and a new addition to its 255,000-sq.-ft. plant. Metalforming Magazine recently visited BTD to report on its new servo-drive press, and will feature the story in the September issue.
In the meantime, they've posted a 2-min, video to the Multimedia Center of metalformingmagazine.com, showing the servo press deep-drawing 0.085-in. cold-rolled steel. With the press operating in pendulum mode, productivity rises by 30 percent compared to running the job on a standard mechanical press.

AIDA-America Hosts Servo Press Symposium / Open House Dayton, Ohio, 6/25/2012 - On June 13th and 14th AIDA-America hosted its latest Servo Press Symposium and Open House.
Nearly 120 attendees, representing close to 60 companies, were on hand to take part in technical seminars as well as have a first-hand experience with multiple demonstrations of AIDA Direct Drive Servo Formers(DSF Series). Visitors to AIDA-America's facility viewed presentations of HSLA blanking, part, production and process improvements and a sampling of AIDA's Servo Press range - a 110 ton, two-point straightside DSF-N2-1100, a 200 ton, single-point gap frame DSF-C1-2000 and a 630 ton, straightside DSF-M2-6300 (MCX Series) were all operational on the shop floor.
With the elevated interest and excellent attendance to the event, it is quite evident that Servo Press Technology is an important topic for many throughout the metal stamping and metalforming industries. AIDA continues to support the need for this technology in these industries by offering its DSF Series Servo Presses in capacities of 80 - 3,500 tons.
