Ajax Metal Forming Solutions

Growing company combines workforce talent with servoforming, joins metalforming short list

"We needed more capacity and our research told us that servoforming is the direction stamping is taking so we wanted to get ahead of the curve."

View User Testimonial

Master Manufacturing

Servoforming technology allowed Master Manufacturing to product a high-carbon-steel tapped appliance component, executing the tapping in-die to eliminate secondary operations.

"Servoforming technology allowed us to run a tool and produce a part we could not have made with our current press lineup."

View User Testimonial

Newman Technologies

Unlike a conventional transfer line, AIDA servo technology has made it possible for Newman to replace its progressive die operations with a gap transfer system

"We wanted a system that could not only produce the part but support our just-in-time initiatives by helping us to further reduce inventory, lead times and the cost and maintenance associated with progressive dies."

Qualtek Manufacturing

A matter of control: stamper optimizes the variables of the servo press

"Anything that runs in a mechanical press will definitely run in a servo press, but the servo is a more sophisticated press."

Scandic Spring

San Francisco stamper averts seismic event with servo press, halts tool breakage, die cracking, part carnage

"This job really illustrates the benefit of slowing down the press at the bottom dead center [BDC] while still applying full tonnage."

View User Testimonial

Ward Manufacturing

Metal stamper Ward Manufacturing Co. invests in its future by installing a lineup of servo-driven gap frame presses

"It allows us to form more complicated geometries and produce draws in exotic materials at higher speeds while maintaining dimensional integrity - something that, prior to this technology - was, at best, difficult."
