The Transporter® MV end-of-arm
tooling from Industrial
Magnetics Inc. combines vacuum and magnet technology to
lift and hold all shapes and
types of steel, from brass and
aluminum to ferrous and stainless, perforated, oily, or painted, in stamping,
blanking, and press-to-press transfer applications.
The patented magnet/vacuum design is million-cycle-tested for endurance.
When used with ferrous steel, it incorporates a fail-safe feature so that parts will
not release in the event of air loss.

In-die tapping with a progressive die
AIDA-America Corp. will demonstrate in-die tapping using a progressive
die in an NC1-1500D servo-driven gap press at 60 SPM with a 1⁄ 2-13 tapping operation. The demonstration combines swing motion, constant
velocity, and silent blanking motion in a ServoPro to eliminate the secondary operation normally required for tapping stamped parts.
AIDA also will feature an LF series straightener/feeder, a space-saver unit
designed to reduce overall floor space.
