Stamping Material Cost Optimization

8- Hour Course

Stamping Material Cost Optimization
The purpose of this course is to provide various approaches to driving down material costs of a stamping through design & process optimization. It will include the methodology for identifying critical design points that determine the material requirements and utilization. Suggestions for Transfer and Progressive die operations will be included. Exercises will challenge participants to generate and evaluate cost savings ideas for their own parts.
