Metal stamping and pressing serves a vast range of other industries including aerospace, agriculture, automotive, construction, electronics, medical, military, and telecommunications, to name a few. How do manufacturers remain competitive in a market that requires both high volume and critically precise components for everything from swing sets to submarines? Continuous Improvement! There is a constant push toward internal process improvements, and even longstanding techniques like SMED (Single-Minute Exchange of Die) continue to be very relevant in the path to sustained profit margins.

Companies in the metal stamping industry often need to move large coils that weigh thousands of pounds, measure materials in tons, and somehow still cut out every possible second from the manufacturing process. As such, OEE is an important metric in the industry. Vorne XL moves stamping and pressing operations far beyond manual data capture to gain critical insights for effectively driving process improvement and actualizing change with 100+ metrics and 20+ data dimensions.

Other benefits of XL that customers love include no software to install, no servers to maintain, no recurring fees, and no contracts. Instead you get unlimited users, free technical support, a 3-year warranty, and free software updates. All in an inexpensive, off-the-shelf product.

Key Benefits for Metal Stamping and Pressing

Vorne XL products are completely agnostic to the type of equipment in your manufacturing process. This is a huge advantage as you can easily apply XL to any equipment and get the same wealth of information. XL includes I/O to integrate with your process, a scoreboard for your operators, and built-in reporting for your managers. It easily scales from machine to enterprise. Monitor processes like blanking, embossing and coining on mechanical, hydraulic or servo presses, deep draw presses, press breaks or fin blanking lines, and many others with one solution, quickly seeing benefits such as:

  1. 1
    Optimize Changeovers SMED has long been the gold standard for changeovers in the stamping industry. Let XL show you the fastest, slowest, and average coil changeover times, informing your team of aggressive but attainable targets.
  2. 2
    Easily Accessible Data Metal fabrication equipment is often inherently large and loud, making it difficult to convey production data on the plant floor without clearly visible KPIs. With Vorne XL’s integrated industrial plant floor scoreboards and detailed dashboards accessible over your network, you can easily manage every measured asset and identify issues in real time.
  3. 3
    Dimensional Data Stamping and pressing often requires long production runs that span multiple shifts or even multiple days. Analyzing data by part, job, shift, or team over any period of time enables you to run comparative analyses or trend information over time to identify areas for improvement.
  4. 4
    Quality and Scrap Measurements Whether you manually track discrepant material or automate the trim or scrap produced, XL will provide insight into quality metrics such as quality loss percentage, rejects by reason, and quality lost time to quantify waste.
  5. 5
    Visual Timelines The ability to visually understand how your equipment transitions between periods of run time (or running slow), unplanned downtime, coil changes or die changes, and even breaks, safety meetings, or startup events is critical to understanding where your production time is being allocated.
