A metal forming facility had experienced a major problem on one of its bending brake presses. The air-tube holding plate of the clutch failed dramatically when a large piece of the steel plate cracked off. The resulting downtime was very costly for the high-volume production plant.
The challenge at a regional window treatment company was to ensure a consistent, even spray of the final coating on the steel material used in their manufacturing process. The steel unwinds from a coil and passes through multiple coating baths then through an oven.
