Continuous Improvement

In an ideal world, production always runs smoothly. However, in practice, this is far from reality. After successfully stamping thousands of parts that meet the required quality specifications, production departments may experience a sudden rise in the part reject rate, even though nothing appears to have changed in the tooling or stamping process. When this occurs, additional expenses are incurred due to unplanned press downtime and tool maintenance, missed production targets and stamped parts of insufficient quality.

AutoForm´s software addresses these issues and supports you in determining appropriate correction measures during production. The software identifies the correction measures which have no effect whatsoever and those which offer a real chance of resolving the particular problem at hand. You can then easily identify where the critical areas in the part are, which measures should be taken to resolve them effectively and how other areas are affected as a result. Based on this information, you can introduce an effective action plan.
